Many of the artisans at the 30th Annual Northern Virginia Handcrafters Guild Art & Craft Showcase over Thanksgiving weekend are regulars at the show at the Vienna Community Center. The three-day event featured more than 70 crafters showcasing arts and crafts from Christmas ornaments to fiber arts, jewelry, woodworking, painting, photography, knitting, and glass art. Shoppers come from throughout Northern Virginia.
