With items ranging from home-canned jellies and relish to hand-made quilts and rugs, Breckenridge’s annual Craft Show, hosted by the local craft guild will take place this weekend, Nov. 18 and 19.

This year’s event will feature the arts and crafts of more than 20 vendors, as well as some food cooked by the Breckenridge Elks Lodge.

The Craft Show will be open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, and from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 19, at the First United Church’s Christian Life Center, 419 W. Walker St.

For an entrance fee, the craft guild requests a $1 donation. The organization donates the proceeds from the craft show to local charities. In the past, they have donated to Meals on Wheels, for breast cancer awareness and research and organizations providing children’s clothing and shoes.  Additionally, the Elks Lodge proceeds will be used to assist handicapped children go to summer camp.

“If you don’t put back into the community, you won’t get back from it,” said Lena Stockton, craft show organizer.

Although the craft guild hasn’t been able to have regular meetings lately, Stockton said the group is looking for an affordable place to meet and plans to get together soon.
