(Seguin) -- Get ready to shop till you drop at this year's Yulefest Arts and Crafts Show. The show, hosted by the Seguin Art League, will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Seguin Coliseum.

Art League President Liz Romero says the arts and crafts show is an unique opportunity for area artists and crafters to sell their work and to showcase their individual talents.

"It's an annual large handmade craft and hand embellished items event. This year, we've got over 75 vendors. Last year, we tried to expand it outside and our two vendors, who were outdoors, were rained out. So, we quickly squeezed them back inside. But this year, it looks like we're going to have really nice weather. So we'll have several vendors outdoors. We have our usual huge variety of Christmas decor items, jewelry, pottery, wood interior and exterior decorative signs, tile work and leather work and metal work. It just goes on and on, a big variety of different kinds of beautiful craft items," said Romero.

Romero says the show also offers activities for the children and an opportunity to win a fabulous door prize.

"An important thing and something that is very popular is that we have door prizes that are donated by the vendors. We give several every hour because we have so many vendors, we have lots of door prizes to hand out. They may be as frequent as every 15 minutes. We'll have a children's craft activity that's put together by one of our local teachers and art league members, Kelly Hallmark. She always comes up with something fun and creative for our young visitors. Then, the art league will also be selling our hand painted, hand created ornament that are made from wood, salvaged from the Klein Opera House that was on the second floor of our building on Austin Street. Those are always very popular," said Romero.

Romero says she credits Chairperson Karen Roberson for molding the show into a top-quality event.

"You may never see some of these things at another craft sale because Karen Roberson, really is very attentive to making sure that what we have is actually either handmade or hand embellished. So, it'll be different It's not something that comes out of a factory or assembly line," said Romero.

The event is free. All proceeds raised go to support the Seguin Art League, a 501(c)3 organization focused on connecting art and the community.
