[ SURVIVING THE FALL ]


Get crafty for
the holidays


Soon we'll be seeing scarecrows on fence posts, glowing pumpkins on doorsteps and cobwebs dripping from tree branches. Creating a Halloween haunt takes a lot of preparation, and though it might seem early, now is a good time to start planning. Despite Halloween's bewitching nature, costumes and crafty decorations won't mysteriously appear in a single night.

Free demonstrations and an array of classes and workshops are planned for the holiday season, to provide a jump start on decorations, gift items and greeting cards. They cover a range of skills, including sewing, quilt-making and beading, so find one that suits your talents. Here's a sampling of what's available:
