The Hoover Senior Center will host its largest ever showcase of craft items made by its members at the Crafty Creations Bazaar on Friday, Oct. 21, from 9 a.m. to noon.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will allow members to show off their talents and to sell their handmade items, according to Tracy Vinzant, the senior center’s event coordinator.
“Members who participate in our knitting, crocheting and painting groups will have their creations for sale,” Vinzant said. “Examples of other items you might see are handmade ink pens, oil paintings and photography.”
This will be the first year that the center has hosted a large-scale crafts bazaar, according to Vinzant. “In the past, we have had craft showcases where the various creative arts groups were able to display their talents for their peers to enjoy,” she said. “Those were such a success that we thought, ‘Why not give them an opportunity to sell their unique items?’”
With the Christmas season on the way, the bazaar offers another benefit to attendees, according to Vinzant. “It’s a great opportunity to get a head start on holiday shopping by purchasing a one-of-a-kind gift,” she said.
Light refreshments will be served. The Hoover Senior Center is located at 400 Municipal Drive.
