Homemakers hosting bazaarPublished 4:11pm Tuesday, November 13, 2012
The Mountaintop Homemakers Club is always looking to do something good for other people whether it’s making teddy bears for abused children, blankets for the elderly or anything in between.
To support all the projects these ladies do for others throughout the year, the Mountaintop Homemakers Club will host their annual Christmas Bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 8 a.m. until at New Hope Methodist Church on Franklin 81 in East Franklin.
Items for sale will include the popular wooden door hangings like stockings for Christmas, initials for multi-seasonal use, and the signature Alabama Crimson Tide “A,” all of which have been hand-painted and decorated.
Also for sale will be crocheted hats, embroidered towel sets and clothing, handmade soaps, quilts, hand-painted wooden crosses, candles, wreaths, aprons, ornaments, gift sets, and an array of baked goods such as cakes, cookies, pies and peanut brittle.
“Everyone seems to enjoy the bazaar and we have some really nice things for sale this year,” club member Kathy Snider said.
“I think there will be something for everyone to enjoy.”
The projects that are supported by the bazaar are wide-ranging.
So far in 2012, the Mountaintop Homemakers have donated two large boxes of handmade blankets and hats to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, made gift baskets and items for Safeplace and Hospice, donated handmade bears and blankets to all the police departments in the county to give to children in bad situations, and made pillowcases for the Shriner’s Hospital in Greenville, S.C., in memory of Noah Trapp, club member Suenell Trapp’s grandson, since he was a frequent patient there.
“We really enjoy what we do and we love to use our talents in order to give back to the community,” club member Shelia Hall said. “This Christmas Bazaar just helps us raise the money so we can continue to do these things for other people in need, so we hope everyone will come out this Saturday to support us.”
