Alburnett Historical Society has done it again! Another successful Crafters Only Fair in the books! Thank you to all involved for an amazing time.
Our travels this weekend took us to Alburnett, Iowa’s Historical Society for a Crafters Only Fair. Excitement filled the air as we hustled in from the cool air to set up our displays and share our work with each other and the community. We were thrilled to be in the midst of so many crafters/artisans with a passion for their work.
Yesterday marked our second year as a participant in the event. We were honored to be invited back and look forward to years to come. Julie Towe organizes the fair each year and brings in talent from surrounding communities. During set up we were able to meet fellow crafters and view the marvelous handmade work.
The fair brings in artists from miles around with a unique creative touch. Quilts, blankets, cards, jewelry, felting, tatting, woodworking, barnwood signs, photography and more. Kevin and I shared our space with Debb Thein, a needle tatter from Cedar Rapids. Her work is delicate and intricate.
“Me and T”, Julie and Teresa, were present with signs, cards, wreaths and holiday fun. The two are neighbors and have become great friends. Together they create fantastic art. Julie was a guest artist in “The Spotlight” for Happy Mileurs in June.
The Alburnett Historical Society was recently renovated and the area for our Fair is well lit and spacious. Vendors in the main area were given ample space to display and the comradery was positive and upbeat. See more views of crafters work.
Thank you again to everyone for coming out to share and to support the Crafters Only Fair! We appreciate you all and look forward to years to come.
Until next time, enjoy the journey and keep creating.
