Sarah Roell wants to keep canines fashionable.

Roell, a vendor at the 18th annual Crafters and Artisan Market slated for Saturday, Oct. 2, in Merion Village, will bring her custom-made dog scarves, which come in a variety of patterns and sizes, to the event.

"I can embroider the dog's name on it and all that good stuff, too," said Roell, the founder of All Scarfed Up.

The Crafters and Artisan Market will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Gates-Fourth United Methodist Church, 1234 S. Fourth St. The event is free.

About 20 vendors will be present, bringing everything from custom jewelry to knitted goods to paintings.

Kerry Riggs said her 4-H club, Urban Achievers, would bring buckeye necklaces and candy to the market. In addition, Riggs is in charge of a silent auction, which will feature a craft basket and other merchandise.

"It's a chance for people to get out and talk to their neighbors, and get a little early holiday shopping done," she said.

Organizers are seeking donations for a white elephant sale. Items may be dropped off at the church from 5 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 1. Baked goods also are being sought. They will be accepted from 5 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 1 or 8 to 10 a.m. the day of the market.

The market is a fundraiser for the Merion Village Association.
