27th Annual Distelfink Country Christmas
Dedicated to the decorative arts and committed to excellence in craftsmanship, Distelfink Country Christmas is a unique show with an unwavering vision. The perennial theme is country/primitive, so don’t expect anything flashy. Instead, visitors can bank on high-quality crafts perfect for accenting a country home, warming a lonely hearth, or winning over that hard-to-buy-for friend. Held annually by the Distelfink Crafters, a nonprofit group, this juried craft show includes works from members and non-members alike to create a shopping experience par excellence.
At Distelfink Country Christmas, over 50 quality vendors display tremendous art and craft pieces in Christmas boutique setting. Being that the theme is “country and primitive,” almost all of the crafts imbue a rustic charm. Hand-sewn quilts are sold amongst farmhouse-style furniture as well as soy candles and specialty soaps. However, there are hints of contemporary posh to be found, especially in the form of trendy canine treats and designer chocolates. Being a holiday show, there are plenty of holiday-themed wares. Quilted and handmade ornaments are for sale as well as felt-sewn Christmas trimmings and hand-crafted toys.
The hosting Distelfink Crafters is a nonprofit group of artists dedicated to the decorative arts. What started as a collaboration of stencilers has since grown to include a wide variety of similar craft styles. Everything from redware pottery to hand-painted home décor is represented. Furthermore, it is the inclusiveness of the Distelfink Country Christmas which brings everyone together seamlessly whilst creating an easy going and eclectic buying atmosphere. Visitors are guaranteed to be charmed and delighted by the quaint, basket weaving, needle felting, and aforementioned pottery, candles, stenciling and decorative painting. The handmade items have a distinct primitive, country theme that works well in today’s décor for the holidays.
