The Cleveland Creative Arts Guild presents the Craft Palette’s 31st annual Christmas Open House. The two-day event began Saturday and will continue from 1 to 5 p.m. today. Refreshments will be served.
Included in the displays will be paintings by Billie Nipper, Carol Kong, David Bishop, Marguerite Anderson, Dennis Bennett, Ed Leach, Sue Summers, Calvin Hall, Marguerite Owens and Frankie Conor.
Pottery by John Simmons, Linda Leggett, Sylvia White and Clay Grigsby will also be featured in the holiday display.
Handcrafted “treasures” include angels, wreaths, Santas, birdhouses, snowflakes, afghans, quilts and mother-and-daughter aprons (for holiday baking) for gifts at Christmastime.
June Spratlin, Nan Tucker and Jane Rhodes will have hand knits and crochet items available. New arrivals, such as warm and cozy hats, scarves, shawls, shrugs and gloves, will certainly fill the bill as the weather gets cooler.
As always, there will be the popular items like snowmen, jewelry, candles, soft sculpture and cookbooks to choose for gift giving and home decorating.
Christmas ornaments — crafted with love and care — will be sold to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, according to CAG’s president, Dale Dotson. Check out the variety in stained glass, crystal and glass.
Be sure to register (with phone number) for door prizes at the open house and throughout the holidays. Winners do not have to be present for prizes.
