ALTON — Senior Services Plus, 2603 N. Rodgers Ave., will host an Arts & Crafts Bazaar from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23.
Thirteen vendors will be on site in the agency’s School House Grill, selling items such as stained glass, handmade purses, wool gloves, stationary cards and potholders.
Two regularly meeting social activity groups at Senior Services Plus will sell items also and donate their proceeds to the nonprofit agency.
The “Wood Carvers” meet at Senior Services Plus on Thursdays and have been working year-round on handcrafted wooden ornaments. The hand-painted ornaments come in a variety of designs. Other wood-carved items will also be sold at their vendor space.
The “Piece Makers” are a group of quilters that meets four days each week to create items like baby quilts, burp cloths, baby bibs, thread catchers, walker bags, kitchen towels and even full and queen-sized quilts.
During the event, raffle tickets will be sold for the “Piece Makers’” annual Holiday Quilt, a queen-sized quilt that comes with two pillow cases. The drawing for the Holiday Quilt will take place Dec. 18 at the agency’s Holiday Luncheon.
The public is encouraged to attend and pick up handmade items for the holiday season. There is no cost to enter the bazaar. Prices of items will vary by vendor.
