The Harvest Fair is an annual tradition that brings out the whole Melrose community. It will be held on Saturday, November 12 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Melrose Unitarian Universalist Church, at 70 West Emerson St., across from the Melrose Public Library.
The fair will feature baked goods, quilted crafts, pottery, holiday decorations, vintage jewelry and collectibles, plants and garden supplies, and a gigantic indoor yard sale, including toys and baby needs, household items, furniture, books, and sporting goods. A scratch ticket tree will be raffled off, and the “re-gifting table” filled with brand new gifts will also be back.
Harvest Cafe offers Breakfast and Lunch Menu
Downstairs, the Harvest Cafe will be serving breakfast coffee cake and beverages. Vegetarian and meat chili, as well as other lunch options, will be available, along with homemade apple crisp and brownies.
A highlight of the fair is the Quilt Raffle.
This year’s quilt is a traditional patchwork quilt entitled “legacy star” with paisley prints of green, rose and gold. It is large, 87″ x 87″ suitable for a double or queen bed. It was machine pieced by the Melrose UU church quilting group. Tim Flatt of Bellevue Quilting, Melrose, donated the long arm quilting.
Quilt raffle tickets are $2 each or 6 for $10. The drawing will be at the fair at 2:00pm.
