Dear Sun Spots: The Fabric and Craft Supply Fair is returning to High Street after a one-year break. The almost 10-year-old event is expected to be bigger and better.

The fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 14. Table rentals will be $15 each. This sale is for the fabric and craft supplies, not the finished product. So, gather up all your unused fabric and craft supplies, rent a table and will them to other crafters. Or, donate your supplies to be sold at the church’s table. Please bring your items to the church between March 19 and April 6. FMI or to rent a table, phone Judy McKinney at 753-0367. – Judy McKinney, Auburn.

Dear Sun Spots: Some time ago, a person was in need of a Singer machine buttonholer. I have a never-used Singer Professional Buttonholer for a slant-needle zigzag sewing machine. If interested, phone 645-2395 or write P.O. Box 90, Wilton, ME 04294. – N.D., No Town.

Dear Sun Spots: Thank you for publishing my need for help with my band saw. A reader showed me how to install new blades and another calibrated all of the adjustments. Both took the time to teach me and to make sure I could do it in the future. So thank you for your help! It was greatly appreciated.

I’d also like to thank the great number of callers who wanted to help because I was not able to by phone. Thanks to all! – A Vet In Need, No Town.
