Fall craft fair Saturday in Pryor

PRYOR — St. Mark’s Parish of Pryor Ladies’ Club will host its second annual Fall Craft Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at 1507 S. Vann St. in Pryor. The women of the church had held a spaghetti dinner and silent auction in the fall to raise money for its Altar Society, which supports altar supplies, funeral dinners, and 200 food baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas for those in need in Mayes County.

The group decided to try a new fundraiser last year with the craft fair. The first fair raised more than $3,500, and included concessions, a bake sale, and an heirloom quilt raffle. The club also made and sold more than 200 pounds of their “Made with Love” English toffee.

This year’s event is planned to have more than 30 local area crafters and popular direct sales vendors such as Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Lia Sophia, and Thirty-One Bags. Craft booths will include stained-glass, wood-turning, jewelry, mosaics, Christmas and baby items, pottery, paintings, scents and soaps, home-made jams and cakes, a local winery, and many others. Concessions will be available throughout the day, as well as baked goods, toffee, home-made tamales, and wine-tasting. Raffle tickets will be sold for a baby quilt, a Christmas quilt, and an heirloom quilt. All are invited. Admission is free, with ample parking and wheelchair access.

St. Mark’s is part of the Eastern Oklahoma Outreach that partners with Catholic Charities and Trav’s Coats for Kids which provides donated coats for needy children and adults in Green Country.

Information: (918) 825-4186.
