AWO Craft Fair 2008

The American Women’s Organization held its 15th annual craft fair on November 13th at Moscow’s Park Place. Over 400 shoppers browsed and bought the offerings of 75 artists and craft speople while dozens of prizes were raffled and bids placed on donated items in a silent auction. Along with the usual fare of high-quality matryoshka dolls, lacquer boxes, and Christmas decorations, for the first time this year the AWO organized tables selling English-language books and Russian valenki (traditional felt boots), with 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of these items given to charity. The event raised over $40,000, which will be presented to the Nastenka Foundation in support of Moscow’s Pediatric Cancer Hospital at AWO’s Christmas party in December.
