Longtime Langley resident Dora Henry has been participating in the annual Christmas Craft and Bake Sale at Willoughby Hall for more than 10 years. Hosted by the Langley-Willoughby Women’s Community Institute on Nov. 19, the craft fair is now celebrating its 19th year.
Henry makes a variety of ornaments including clowns, snowmen, angel bears, bears on skis, Santas, and angels.
“It’s a hobby for me,” Henry said. “I used to make a lot of crafts so it’s something I enjoy.”
Plenty of work goes into making the small crafts. Henry says she usually sets up a production line and spends entire evenings assembling the little characters together.
“There’s a lot of stitching and glueing involved. I usually sit in front of the TV and stitch and crochet and sew them by hand.”
