Among the crafters are: Linda Ravert's exquisite jewelry and quilts; Pat Padgett's legendary yarn and Hopi baskets; Susan McKenzie's splendid leatherwork; Baldwin Cabin Public Library's used books in good condition and Western Mystery author Steven F. Havill will sell and sign his books at greatly reduced prices; Margaret Walker's sewn items; Verlene Baca- Metal Art; Frolicking Deer Lavender Farm; Barbara Owens  - ornaments and crochet; Fran Verhayen – knitted goods; Ruth Ann Harriet – Quilts;  Dixie Boyle – crocheting; Dolly Baca – various goods; and many more.
The Datil Booster Club will serve a Mexican lunch from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Santa Claus will greet children under 10 years with a bag of Christmas goodies. Gifts will be raffled off every hour. The Extension Club Refreshment table will sell cookies, brownies, breads, coffee, tea, cokes and other soft drinks. The profits go towards scholarships and to the Good Sam Home in Socorro.
