I have just been accepted to participate in the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen fall show on October 16 and 17, 2010. It is an honor to be chosen for this prestigious show. The show will be held at Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, PA. This is conveniently located about 5 minutes from my house (that makes it so much easier!) More information can be found here.

Celebrate the rich colors of autumn and find beautiful and functional gifts for the home and family with the Pennsylvania Guild Fine Craft Festival as it returns to Montgomery County Community College October 16 and 17.
Support those who support the Earth and make durable, locally-made fine crafts part of your lifestyle. Buying handmade, long-lasting crafts is better for the earth too because many craftspeople observe sustainable practices. They are conscious about the impact their creative process has on their environment and future generations. Many also reduce their waste by using reclaimed and repurposed materials. This year, craftsmen who use sustainable practices are identified with a “Guild Green” sign.
Supporting craftspeople in your region is as important as supporting your local restaurant. Craftspeople are small business owners, who pay local taxes and support local institutions just like you. Local, regional, and national craftspeople exhibit annually at the Pennsylvania Guild fine craft fairs. This year, there are more than 30 craftsmen participating who live within a 30 mile radius of Blue Bell. More than half of the festival’s 100 craftspeople live within a 100 mile radius.
Explore the hundreds of one-of-a-kind, individually handmade works by 100 craftspeople in glass, jewelry, pottery, wood, metal, fiber, clothing, furniture and more. The Pennsylvania Guild Fine Craft Fair is an opportunity to support the region’s best craftspeople while finding functional and decorative craft.
