DEAR SUN SPOTS: High Street Congregational Church is only a month away from our annual Fabric Fair on April 6.  We would like to thank all of those who have donated fabric and craft supplies for our fair and are looking forward to meeting those who have rented tables to sell their own items as well. We still have tables left for rent at only $20 each. For donations, we take yarn, fabric, scrapbooking and stamping supplies, needlework, craft tools, and sewing notions. We even take your half-finished items for our “Best Intentions” table. The church is located at 106 Pleasant St. in Auburn. Please contact me at 207-784-1306 or [email protected] for more information.
