And, the 2011 Dorr Mill Award Winner is…

Embroidered felt hat, Jungle Flower!

My felted knit hat, "Jungle Flower" won this year's Dorr Mill Award at the Sunapee Fair.

Each August, visitors to the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s Sunapee Fair can visit CraftWear, a glorious collection of fine, handmade art-to-wear.

The LNHC CraftWear boutique offers one-of-a-kind jewelry, clothing and accessories.

Many thanks to Dorr Mill, for the award. I’m delighted by the recognition, especially considering the talent of my fiber artist peers.

There will be a Grand Opening reception tomorrow, October 26, 2011, from 3pm – 8pm, which I’m hoping to attend. See you there?

Thank you, Virginia Prescott (of NHPR’s Word of Mouth) for the “moment”!

My brother and I went to the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen's Fair which is held annually in Mt.
