Always on the last Saturday every November, the MERA Christmas Fair is a day we all look forward to. Since 2005, local artisis and artisans – who pass our jury – offer wonderful and unique hand-crafted items for sale including creations of the MERA Heritage Weavers and Potters. Other vendors incluide organic chocolate by Ludwig, Strawberry Cottage candles soaps, jewelry by My Gem Creations, Poittery by Jan Conley and more!  20% of gross sales go to MERA so come and support our local artists and artisans and MERA at the same time! New vendors this year include handwoven clothing by Heather Sherratt, and woodwork by George Fisher.

The MERA fibrearts, knitters, weavers, potters and, new this year, the gardening club who are making terrariums, donate many items to the MERA room where 100% of sales go directly to MERA. All proceeds from the Wizard’s Café also go to MERA as well as sales from the bake table and popular Raffle Bags (with items all donated by vendors).

Please come out and support local artists and MERA at the same time and give gifts that you will not find anywhere else.
