Abbotsford Arts Council Christmas Crafts Show 2009

I love craft shows, and I love talking to the artists. When you buy a gift from the person who made it you get so much more. They always have a story to tell and you get the energy of the person who made it.
These are just a few of the artists presenting at the Abbotsford Arts Council Crafts Fair this year.
