Bradford United Church hosts annual Christmas Bazaar (17 photos)

The women at Bradford United Church put on their annual Christmas Bazaar on Saturday featuring handmade, local items

The Bradford United Church Women held its annual Christmas Bazaar on Saturday, with artisan vendors, a silent auction and hot lunch. 

Vendors were set up throughout the church and back room, with unique products including many hand made items like quilts, wreaths and wood carved ornaments.

Cheryll Strong and Cheryl Blair had their beautiful patterned quilts set up right in the middle. The women have been part of the church’s quilting group, which consists of them and two other ladies, for the past 10 years. 

They meet every Wednesday afternoon and encourages anyone interested in quilting to join. No church membership is required. 

“No experience necrssary,” said Blair. 

"We have fun and we sew," added Strong. 

Nick Stepanek and his two sons, Drew and Ryan had a table as well, of their handmade Christmas centrepieces. The money raised went towards their Scout group and their upcoming trip to Switzerland this summer.

Rosemarie Radcliffe of Lakeview Gardens, who is normally set up at the Bradford Farmers’ Market every weekend, was at the church selling homemade jams and spreads. 

There were many vendors with unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, perfect for Christmas gifts. 

In the back room, a silent auction was set up with many generous items donated by local businesses, including Sweet B’s Catering and Confectionary, Wimpy’s Diner, Kidergy, and more. 

In the kitchen, a hot lunch was served for only $12. 

Money raised went towards the church.
