We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Craft Sabbath

Sunday Dec. 5 & Sunday Dec. 12 @ Salt Lake City Main Library

Christmas is, by far, the hardest holiday to shop for—not just by figuring out people’s tastes, but in price as well. And driving around in the cold, gray weather doesn’t help, either.

Craft Sabbath got the idea of opening its own holiday boutique every year after declaring that buying gift cards and impersonal items is a terrible faux pas. Mind you, theirs is no ordinary craft display. Today (and again on Dec. 12), the artist co-op will take over the entire promenade of the Salt Lake City Main Library, bringing in familiar faces and one-off appearances to help you decide exactly what to get those hard-to-shop-for people.

Besides the usual array of crocheted, felted, recycled and bedazzled items, you’ll find bags screen-printed by Miss Amanda, specialty earrings from Sarah de Azevedo, “Not-Ready-For-Skin” tattoos, and a pair of refugee families making surprise items at each event. And, of course, Santa will make an appearance.

Craft Sabbath @ Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, 801-524-8200, Dec. 5 & 12, 1-5 p.m., free. CraftSabbath.com
