On Saturday, December 6, from 9:00am to 2:00pm, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church will hold its annual Advent Fair. The Fair has been a part of Bedford’s pre-Christmas traditions for more than forty years, offering a wide variety of handmade and homemade gifts and goodies.

Co-chairs Betsey Anderson and John Mitchell have been coordinating a team of dozens of parishioners for the past several months. Some of the planning and prep work begins as early as January, but the bulk of the work is done in the fall: creating handmade crafts, building gorgeous gift baskets, cooking delicious soups, soliciting one-of-a-kind items for the Silent Auction, baking holiday favorites for the Cookie Walk, and more.

In addition to the offerings above, this year’s Fair will also feature a live glassblowing demonstration by local artisan Matthew McDonald, who will have handmade ornaments and other small glass items for sale. A FitBit One and a Kindle Fire HD Kids’ Edition will be raffled off, with tickets going for $10 each or $25 for three.

All proceeds benefitting the work and ministries of the church. Special items this year at the Outreach table include greeting cards from Heifer International, birdhouse kits to benefit Habitat for Humanity, and Lumps o’ Coal—perfect for stocking stuffers!—sold by the high school youth group to support its summer mission trip to West Virginia through Appalachia Service Project.

St. Paul’s is a fully-accessible church located at 100 Pine Hill Road in Bedford, MA. For more information, please call the church office Tuesday through Friday, from 9:00am to 1:00pm, at 781-275-8262, or visit www.stpaulsbedford.org.
