This year’s Fun Fest craft show promises variety and volume.
According to organizer Cathy Lay, between 45 and 50 crafters and vendors will attend, with crafts from embroidered towels, jewelry, crocheted items, wood crafts and ceramics, to vendors with products from companies such as Tastefully Simple and many others.
â€œThere are a lot more people from Maple Park (this year),â€ Lay said.
Lay started out participating in the show several years ago, selling Tupperware, before she took over coordinating the event.
She said the word-of-mouth has spread to crafty people everywhere, and crafters are also coming from places such as Crystal Lake, Genoa, Hinckley and Huntley.
The show will take place on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Main and Pleasant streets.
