Quilts, Spinning And More At The White Haven Quilt Show
The White Haven Area Community Library will host its eighth annual Holiday Quilts & Crafts Show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. The event will be spread over two venues within walking distance: the historic DeWitt Homestead, a restored Victorian home circa 1875 located at 231 Wilkes-Barre St., and the White Haven Area Community Library, located in the historic railroad Engine House at 121 Towanda St., White Haven. Demonstrations of hand quilting by Kathy Oross, fiber spinning by Carol Pirolli, wood crafting by Liam’s Luck Wood Crafts and felting by Lesley McDermott and Linda Kistler will be featured. A assortment of quilts, loaned by area residents will be on display. The Eckley Quilters will also display handmade quilts created to honor local history. Local crafters and artisans will offer hand sewn goods, knit and crochet items, wood crafts, pet products, candles, soaps, paper goods, painted glassware, pins, wreaths and floral arrangements, jams and jellies, and many more items for holiday shopping. Refreshments of hot cider and cookies will be served. A concession stand offering homemade halushki, soup, hot dogs and seasonal treats will be located at the Engine House. Baked goods will be available for sale at the DeWitt Homestead. Raffle tickets for the holiday gift basket raffle, and tickets for a quilt raffle will be available for sale at both sites. Donation is $5 for adults. For information, call 570-443-8776, or go to the website www.whitehavenlibrary.com or Facebook.
