More than 40 local craftspeople and artisans will gather together again for the annual Sorrento crafts fair.

The many talents of the Shuswap will be on display at Sorrento Memorial Hall from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17.

This year’s event will feature everything from handmade leather goods and soap, exciting pottery, wooden bowls, fabulous fabric sculptures, unusual glass ware, and doggy treats.

It’s a wonderful chance for you to see the talents of the Shuswap first-hand as well as get ahead on some Christmas shopping.

The artisans will entice you with their beautiful scarves, hats, soft alpaca mitts and socks, unique jewelry and accessories.

Treat yourself to homemade jams, jellies and baking.

Visitors can also look forward to finding their favourite Avon, Epicure and Watkins products.

The annual event helps raise money for the Sorrento Memorial Hall and is a great way to spend an afternoon and see what the local artists and crafters have been working on throughout the year.

The tea room will be open so new friends and old can share stories over a cup of tea, coffee or a delicious lunch.

There will be a raffle as well as a 50/50 draw with a chance to win many wonderful prizes.

Admission to the event is free.

Sorrento Memorial Hall is off the Trans-Canada Highway across from the Sorrento Elementary School.

For more information, call Bev at 250-675-2897.
