Over a year ago, Beta Rho's Chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International (DKG) members voted to be a part of Christmas in Montrose with a craft fair and bake sale, so the planning began. Members Teresa Cavalier took charge of the crafting and Peggy Walker the bake sale. St. Paul's Episcopal Church generously allowed the chapter to set up and sell their handcrafted items at the church and The Rosemont Inn has agreed to let the chapter have its bake sale there.
Pictured are just a few of the many items handcrafted by Beta Rho Chapter of DKG members that will be for sale
Members have been busy little elves working individually as well as meeting together to produce a huge array of handmade crafts for eager shoppers who attend Christmas in Montrose the first weekend of December. The results are knitted and crocheted items, button crafts, original tile coasters, handcrafted wooden items, hand beaded jewelry, gift card holders, gift bags, soap and tissue holders, nail files in holders, a huge variety of paper crafted items, unique note cards and notebooks, crocheted luggage identification, dish cloths and towels as well as crafts for all ages at reasonable prices. Christmas cookies, cinnamon buns, breads, and pies are just a sampling of the delicious homemade baked goods which will be on sale.
An array of handcrafted items will be for sale at St. Paul's Episcopal Church during Christmas in Montrose on Saturday, December 2, from 9:00am to 3:00pm. There will also be a homemade baked goods sale at The Rosemont Inn the same day.
