The Worcester Center for Crafts Hosts the Holiday Festival of Crafts

The Worcester Center for Crafts will hold its annual Holiday Festival of Crafts Friday, Nov. 24, through Sunday Nov. 26, at its 25 Sagamore Road facility. The festival features more than 60 fine craft artists and their work. The event is held indoors and includes free parking and an on-site café provided by Bushel N Peck. The festival is open on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission to the event is a $5 donation to the Crafts Center, free for children 12 and younger. Taking a cue from the current wisdom of “shop local” and “locally sourced food,” the Holiday Festival pays tribute to the best craft of New England.  This year’s line-up includes all New England artists, including 43 from Massachusetts, five each from Maine and New Hampshire, four from Rhode Island and three from Connecticut.

Included in the artists from Massachusetts are four artists with connections to Worcester and the Worcester Center for Crafts: Kim Cutler and Erika Jorjorian, of Worcester; Lauren Beaudoin, of Springfield; and Elizabeth Ryan, of Spencer.
