Arts at Hayfield to Hold 21st Homespun Holiday Craft Show

10/26/2010 —

On Sunday, November 7, Arts at Hayfield will hold its 21st annual Homespun Holiday craft show at Penn State Wilkes-Barre in Lehman, Pa. from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Countless handcrafted items will be on sale at the event including foods, soaps, candles, pottery, furniture and wood creations, fabric creations, prints and paintings, jewelry, glassware, photographs, stained glass, gingerbread houses, and floral arrangements.

One featured item this year includes an original illustrated Christmas book by Reverend Eleanor Allen accompanied by Mouse Monk, a finger puppet.

This year also marks Hayfield’s Centennial and a special DVD will be available for purchase at the festival.  The DVD, “Hayfield Farm: A Centennial Reflection 1910-2010” travels back to the founding of the farm by Mr. John N. Conyngham, II and the building of Hayfield House, the centerpiece of the Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus, and includes footage marking the transition to the Penn State campus more than 50 years ago. Archival footage and interviews supply much of the material crafted into a fascinating story of local history by William Bachman, instructor of communications at the campus.

The cafeteria will also be open during the craft show, featuring a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings, a signature meal at Homespun Holiday.
