Quadra’s Community Centre will be bursting with a bumper crop of presents from perennial favourites and brand new exhibitors

A bevy of talented artists will show off the bounty of the islands at Quadra’s annual Christmas Craft Fair.

You’ll find a cornucopia of creative gifts, including: baking, baby clothes, baby toys, beads, candles, candy, cards, carvings,  CDs, chocolates, cosmetics, crochet, duct tape wallets, felting, fruit butters, gift wrapping, jewelry, knitting, lavender, masks, mosaics, poetry, photo art, portraits, pottery, preserves, sea salt, sewing, silver, soap, spices,  tie-dye, weaving, wood, and woolens.
