Hudson Craft Fair

Hudson Christmas Craft Fair_ Again this year, Jacques and Isabelle, members of the Beaconsfield guild, participated in the Hudson Christmas Craft Fair. This event is for vendors who create their own products by hand.  Isabelle Rollin and Jacques Lepage - We try to offer new things every year. Adding on to past themes of "Birds and Wildlife in the region" and "Quebec Houses and Barns", this year I painted "Children out in the snow" on my wooden ornaments" , says Isabelle Rollin. 2019 Christmas Craft Fair Invitation Members of our guild have come to encourage the artisans, and donate to the Nichoir, by having a bite to eat at their fundraiser "Bistro" to help injured birds. What a nice Xmas gift. The atmosphere is most festive and friendly.
