FARMINGTON — For people looking for inexpensive Christmas decorating and gift ideas, the Farmington Public Library may have a solution.
The library is hosting a family-oriented Holiday Makers Fair from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday that features more than 20 demonstrators.
Makers fairs are one of the library's newer monthly events.
"It's like a craft fair, but you don't buy anything," said Kathleen Browning, Farmington Public Library's adult service coordinator.
Instead, people demonstrate crafts.
The crafts at the makers fair range from decorating to more complex tasks, such as soldering. Jonathan Bacon, the library's volunteer coordinator, will give acoustic finger-style guitar demos and another member of library staff demonstrate the library's 3D printer.
"Some of the things they can actually make on site," Browning said.
Browning will demonstrate how to make a candy cane sleigh. She has been practicing while working at the library.
"People have been stopping by my desk and looking," Browning said.
