35th Sauquoit Fine Arts & Crafts Show another big success

By GARY LIBERATORE

SAUQUOIT, N.Y. (WKTV) - Temperatures in the teens on Sunday, made it a good day to do some holiday shopping.  That's exactly what many Central New Yorkers did inside he Sauquoit Middle School.

The 35th annual Sauquoit Fine Arts & Crafts Fair was once again a venue many chose to begin their holiday shopping.

With more than 120 vendors, it is the perfect place to browse and stroll.

This stroll takes shoppers through the halls of the school where some vendors set up, to the gym, where many more are stationed, to each individual classroom, which have all been turned into their own little eclectic venues with about three vendors in each.

Rom 102, which is normally Mrs. Cook's classroom, was home this weekend to sausage rolls made in Utica, honey made in Cold Brook and homemade granola made in Sherburne.

Melinda Karastury who is a volunteers in the Sauquoit Schools Marketing Committee says this event is help the kids in the district, "All of the proceeds go directly back into our school, this is for our children, we do this for our kids, this is a community effort.  All parents, volunteers, I mean this is very large within our community, it's our main fundraiser for the school district."
