There you will find jewelry, stained glass, weaving, quilting, knitting, scrimshaw, pottery, felting, water colors, wood carving, spinning, canning and decorated eggs among other items.

There will also be raffles for a carved wooden bowl from Mac Buxton, crocheted “Lord’s Prayer” tapestry from the Buxton family, soap and oils basket from Cynthia High, and a stoneware pottery piece from Pam O’Hara.

A craft art table will keep the little ones busy, and a bake sale will keep you satiated through all your shopping. The fair is sponsored by the Dexter Area Historical Society and proceeds support the work of the society and maintenance of the Dexter Area Historical Museum.
