— A year’s worth of crafti­ness goes on sale Satur­day in the Sim­ply Smit­ten Craft Show, a tra­di­tion dat­ing back more than a decade.

Jen­nifer Grainger, An­gela Town­ley and Holly Blomquist will be among the 30 crafters in­side the Calvert Grange Hall on Fri­day, Nov. 9, and Satur­day, Nov. 10.

“It will be a lot of Christ­mas stuff,” Town­ley said. “All hand­made, all touched by us.”

The sale runs from 4 to 9 p.m. Fri­day and from 10 a.m. un­til 4 p.m. Satur­day at the grange hall, lo­cated at 2357 Tele­graph Road.

“We are just a bunch of friends with a pas­sion for craft­ing,” Town­ley said.

With kids to raise, jobs and fam­i­lies, Sim­ply Smit­ten did not hap­pen the past two years. Or­ga­niz­ers are hop­ing that shop­pers will re­mem­ber them and come back.

They’ve been keep­ing in touch in the in­terim through a blog, Face­book and In­sta­gram.

Among the crafters you’ll find up-cy­cled cloth­ing, fur­ni­ture, decor, items made from wood pal­lets, knit­ted crafts and baked goods.

“A lot of baked goods,” Town­ley noted, men­tion­ing cin­na­mon rolls and breads among the of­fer­ings.

There are kid crafters too, Granger noted.
