Sunset Hills Montessori School’s PTA is seeking artisans and crafters for their 2nd Annual Fine Arts and Crafts Show that will be held Saturday, Sept. 20. In addition to gaining exposure and making some money, artists can feel good in knowing that they will also be contributing to a good cause as all registration fees will be used to construct a new library for the students of Sunset Hills Montessori School. Entries will be accepted until Sept. 5 or the show fills whichever happens first. Booth space prices range from $75- $125 depending on location.
