Craftshow History

"Labor of Love Craft Show" was started in 1990 by two women who were trying to raise dollars for the youth at Hillcrest Church in Austin, Texas. It has grown from a handful of craft tables in the gymnasium to what it is today!

The Craft Show currently holds 80 craft vendors and is an EVENT in Austin! It always happens on the last Friday & Saturday of October.

Ask around and you will easily find someone who knows about the Labor of Love Craft Show. 

This event supports several youth, who, along with their parents, work hours at this show to earn dollars put into their youth accounts, which in turn allows them to pay for the camps, ministries, and mission trips that they attend throughout the year.

It is an amazing sight to see the church turn into a wonder world of homemade crafts and yummy foods prepared in the kitchen by Hillcrest youth and parents.  It is also very special in that it also allows the youth to serve others and the crafters who make this all possible!  

The youth spend the week prior to the show rolling over 150 dozen homemade enchiladas to take home and baking over 250 of the most delicious chocolate cakes you will ever eat! There is breakfast served as well as other lunch/dinner items to eat in the dining room before or after shopping
