This weekend, November 17 & 18th, I return to Westport, Connecticut for the Young Woman’s League Creative Arts Festival for the 3rd year running.
One of the premier juried craft shows in the country, the Festival offers stunning, hand-crafted items by a wide variety of talented artisans. There’s something for everyone on your holiday list, from toys to decorative home items, jewelry, clothing, and even specialty food items.
Don’t worry about bringing the kids, they’ll have fun at the Westport Historical Society’s kids corner themed “Arts and Crafts: Old and New.”
The Creative Arts Festival (CAF) is sponsored by the Westport Young Woman’s League, a non profit organization dedicated to helping those in need in our community and beyond while providing its members an opportunity for camaraderie and personal growth through its many educational and fun special interest activities.
This year, I will donate one of my freehand embroidered Heirloom Handknit Hats to the Creative Arts Festival Raffle, the proceeds of which help the WYWL with charitable works in the local community throughout the year.
Kids 12 & Under: FREE
For more information on shuttle buses, maps and discounts visit the WYWL website or call (203)-222-1388.
If you make it to Westport, Connecticut, this weekend, be sure to come visit me at the Staples High School Gym, booth #163.
While you are there, please check out the work of my fellow League of New Hampshire Craftsmen artists, printmaker Matt Brown, and polymer clay/fiber artist Luann Udell, both of whom I encouraged to join this Festival…
I want them to really enjoy it, so come on by and say hello. It would be so nice to see you there!
