Everything you need to know about Craft Fair!

Our 14th Annual Holly Days Craft Fair is this Saturday! This is such a huge event and is our main fundraiser for the whole year. I know it seems like so much work, but it's really worth it. It's actually fun to be involved it and you get to know other MOPS mom's better. Here's what you can do to help:

1. Download the above picture and email it to everyone you know in Albuquerque. Invite your mother, brother, uncle or neighbor to shop at our craft fair. Post it on Facebook or your blog.

2. Bring baked goods for our bake sale. Breads, pie and cinnamon rolls do really good. If making cookies make sure to wrap them in bunches, 2-3 in a bunch. Wrap them in saran wrap and label them. (For example: Pumpkin cookies with pecans. Below is a picture from last year.)

3. Set up on Friday and Clean up on Saturday. See your small group leader for your groups assignment. If coming to set up, we need the most help from 7:00 a.m. to about 10:00. We have to move everything out of the gym so we can mark the floor for booth spaces. If early morning doesn't work for you, you can come throughout the day on Friday. Clean up time starts at 2:45, and the more help we can get the faster we can get out of there! We have to take table and chairs down, remove tape from the floor, put away Christmas decorations, and sweep the gym floor.

4. Don't forget your donation for the raffle baskets. See your small group leader tomorrow for more details. The raffle baskets bring in hundreds of dollars on their own. Every year you ladies out-do yourselves on the creative basket ideas!

We appreciate your help! MOPS moms can move mountains!
