The show opened Saturday and features items, such as Christmas decorations, wooden crosses, laser-carved wooden pictures, camo purses, crocheted potholders, aprons, painted tin, leatherwork, quilts, rag rugs, purses, homemade jellies and preserves, pet jackets and much more. There will be door prizes given away throughout the day.

In the kitchen, attendees can get doughnuts, brownies, chicken spaghetti with garlic toast, nachos, Frito pie and a variety of drinks.

Also available at the craft show are raffle tickets for the “For the Love of Texas” quilt. Proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the First United Methodist Church’s WinGS (Women in God’s Service) group. Tickets for the queen-sized quilt cost $1 each or six for $5.

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.
