I hope you were able to make it to our annual Holiday Sale last weekend- a good time was had by all this year. Guests enjoyed some lovely klezmer music and tasty hors d'oeuvres prepared by staff members Alex and Sarah on Friday night during our Preview Party. The Center raised some money for its programs through a silent auction and raffle. The vendors got a chance to enjoy each other's work (as well as sell their own). On the whole, a smashing success. Here's some more pictures from the event.
FYI: The Center is closed as of December 23rd, reopening January 2nd.
Happy Holidays from the Center for Book Arts!
