Imagine, if you will: 8 big white tents nestled along the slopes of beautiful Mount Sunapee, full to bursting with the handmade work of over 200 League of NH Craftsmen juried in wood, clay, glass, metal & fiber.

Plus! You can enjoy hands-on workshops, demonstrations, exhibits, tours, a sculpture garden, live music and even ride the ski lift for a spectacular view of the surrounding Lakes Region.

League of New Hampshire Craftsmen's fiber artist, Carrie Cahill Mulligan takes a ride on the chair lift at Mount Sunapee Resort in Newbury, NH during the Annual Craftsmen's Fair.

I love the view of the Lakes Region from the lift!
