An impressive array of crafts will be on display and for sale at the 17th annual Old-fashioned Christmas Craft Faire on Saturday, Nov. 17 at the Cameron Park Community Center, 2502 Country Club Drive, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Two of the participating crafters have been taking part for three years and look forward to the annual fair where they can share their art. They take pride in making items that will brighten the lives of others.

Five years ago, Janice Albert was looking for a hobby. She had just retired from the Department of Justice where she had worked for 28 years in the information technology sector.

Albert, 60, decided to take classes to learn how to make suncatchers — stained-glass artwork that can be hung in or near a window so that it catches and reflects the light. The optical pleasantries can vary in shape and the use of colors.

The choice was a nice companion craft to her husband Ed’s work with stained-glass ornaments, lamps and decorator items.

Ed had retired from the Department of Justice as an electrician. He started his fascination with stained-glass in 1982.

Inside the couple’s Camino two-story home are suncatchers reflecting rainbows on the walls.

Some of those suncatchers, plus stained-glass items, and scarves and hats the couple has made will be on display and for sale at the craft fair.

“It gets better every year,” said Janice. “I think it’s well run.”

According to Tina Helm, recreation supervisor for the Cameron Park Community Services District, all crafts are handmade.

Helm said vendors can still sign up to display their crafts.

Shoppers can enjoy Chinese food, gyros, kettle corn, sodas, water, coffee and wine at the fair.

For more information about the fair call the Cameron Park Community Services District’s office at 530-677-2231 or visit cameronpark.org and click under the tab titled Event Calendar.
