Holliston Newcomers Club to Host 36th Annual Craft Fair

by Danielle Ohman

The Holliston Newcomers Club is proud to announce its 36th Annual Craft Fair.
The Craft Fair is an annual event that is held the weekend before Thanksgiving
in Holliston, MA at Holliston High. It is a juried craft fair of about 125
crafters that pride themselves on their hand-made works.

This year the fair will be held on Sunday November 24th from 9am – 4pm.  There
are a variety of returning artisans from around New England and the
Mid-Atlantic, plus dozens of new ones. Crafter categories include:  Bath & Body,
Children’s Items, Edible Delights, Jewelry, Home & Personal Accessories, and
Glass, Pottery & Wooden Items.   Shop for holiday gifts and find something for
yourself too!

As is tradition, the Craft Fair will feature a bake table and hourly raffle
drawings for crafts donated by the fair’s talented artisans.  Guests who bring a
non-perishable food item for the Holliston Food Pantry will receive a free
ticket to be entered in the hourly drawings.  

For over 40 years the Holliston Newcomers Club has remained strongly committed
to giving back to the community by issuing grants to organizations that make a
significant impact, provide needed services and projects, and help the greatest
number of Holliston residents. The craft fair is the largest fundraiser for the
Holliston Newcomers Club.  In 2013, grant recipients included the Holliston Arts
Council to support the summer concert series, the Holliston Public Library to
support their museum pass program, the Holliston Auxiliary Police, The American
Legion Post 47 Downtown Marigold Project, The Miller School Gift Bag Project,
The Friends of the Holliston Trails, and the Holliston Pantry Shelf to support
their continuing efforts.

The Holliston Newcomers Club, ( is a not-for-profit
organization that coordinates charitable, civic, education and recreational
events and activities in the town of Holliston.  The organization’s goal is to
encourage association among community members and foster community spirit.
