The purpose of the event is to raise money for the various ministries found at St. Julie Billiart Church.
In the past we have ...
Provided money to rent vans for Catholic Heart Work Camp in Virginia Beach
Bought cots for Family Promise (Transitional Housing Program).
Lowered the cost of registration for youth group activities and trips
Helped fund the St. Julie - St. Peter Ukraine Welcome Circle project
Here is how it works
Our crack team of volunteers sets up all available tables in the classrooms of our catechetical center.
Teens volunteer to unload crafter's wares, and welcome them to our facility with youthful energy and a friendly smile.
Crafters and vendors look forward to hot coffee and a well stocked cafe throughout their day, with happy elves taking food orders and delivering hot meals. (Our chili and cabbage and noodles are legendary.)
Shoppers arrive and are given a door prize ticket in exchange for a $1 entrance fee. The ticket can be matched to winning items at each crafter/vendor table.

2022 Craft Show in Review
The 2022Craft Show turned out to be a fun community building experience for everyone involved. Shoppers, Crafters, Vendors, and Volunteers had a great day.
This annual event takes place the first Saturday in December. Our craft show is part of the North Ridgeville “Holiday on the Ridge”. Besides being a fun shopping experience this is a wonderful time of fellowship and holiday cheer.
More than 65 vendors and crafters sign up for this popular Christmas Craft show. Attendance topped 700 shoppers in 2022. Our Craft show is very well attended because of the fabulous crafters and vendors we attract and the amazing volunteers who make the day a wonder time to be together.
