Join us for Second Sundays at Schweitzer Environmental Center on Sunday, December 11, 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm for our annual Nature Arts & Crafts Show. The center becomes a holiday wonderland while artists and craftspeople gather to show and sell their nature-inspired wares. 

Find a truly unique gift that is inspired by nature and created by local artists like Jenny Hibbs with Honestly Inspired who makes hand-crafted, natural goat’s milk soap, and Lynda Wallis who creates hand-beaded leather wrap bracelets and earrings made from vintage tins.

“I make extra gentle soaps with ingredients from nature such as shea & mango butters, avocado & hemp oils and other moisturizing ingredients.” said Jenny Hibbs.

Other artists and craftspeople will showcase holiday decor, yarn creations, hand-crafted jewelry, baked goods, and barn-wood tags and signs. FOTFR 2023 wall calendars and fresh evergreen arrangements will also be available for sale, and while most of our participants are local, there will be a selection of handmade jewelry and artifacts from Uganda in support of the Bwindi Watoto School.

Where:
Schweitzer Environmental Center
16N900 Sleepy Hollow Road
Dundee Township. IL 

Be an Artist Participant: Friends of the Fox River provides each participant with a space with a table and two chairs, refreshments, and marketing; each participant is asked to donate $25 for their space.
