“Holiday Inn” is the theme for the New Canaan Artisans’ annual Holiday Boutique.

Admission is free on Sat., while on Fri., Nov. 16 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm., there will be a Preview Party with wine and cheese refreshments and “first choice” shopping available for a $10 admission fee. It includes a 10% discount for those who have made dinner reservations in advance of preview night.
The Artisans have created a wide array of fashion and decorative handcrafts to help you find the perfect gifts for those special people on your list. This year’s Holiday Boutique includes Christmas stockings, ornaments, hand knit children’s sweaters, plus hats, scarves and mittens for the whole family. New this year will be a “Doggy Boutique” where you will find sweaters and accessories for that special member of your family. Many of your other favorite gift items including embroidered linens, placemats and napkins, bottle gift bags and one-of-a-kind doll clothes will also be available.
Established over eighty years ago, the New Canaan Sewing Group has always focused on helping local non-profit organizations. In their first incarnation as the Sewing Committee of the Visiting Nurse Assoc., they sewed layettes and clothing for families under the care of the VNA. Today they are organized into four groups which meet at different times every week to work on their projects. One third of the active members have dedicated twenty years’ service to their group’s philanthropic mission. All proceeds from the boutique are donated in the form of grants to mostly health and human services non-profit organizations in Stamford, Norwalk, Wilton, Darien and New Canaan.
