The Lathe Ledger

Solidly in the heart-of-the-art show season (or core-of-the-craft circuit), my schedule for the balance of the year is now rather firmly established:

Oct. 12-13 - 56th Catoctin Colorfest, #105 in the Community Park, Thurmont, MD, 9-5
Oct. 26 - Food Truck Festival, Fair Hill Fairgrounds, MD, 12-5
Nov. 2 - Patuxent Wildlife Festival, Laurel, MD, 9-3
Nov. 16 - Holiday Craft Fair, Salem Community College, Carney's Point, NJ, 10-3
Nov. 23-24 - Center for the Creative Arts, Yorklyn, DE, 10-5
Nov. 29-30 - Holiday Craft Show, Cape May Convention Hall, 10-4
Dec. 7 - Hodgson Vo.Tech. Winter Boutique & Craft Fair, 9-4
Dec. 13-14 - Winter Arts Festival, Delaware Art Museum, noon-8 and 10-4
My location at Artsfest (this coming weekend!) is near the eastern-most entrance on the wooded path, my favorite area! If you've never been to this show, you should at least put it on your 'bucket list'. It's a great 'memory creator'!
The Harford County Wine Festival is an afternoon filled with good music, and possibly every vintner in the state of Maryland. And finely turned wood.
The Harvest Moon Festival affords me the opportunity to bring my mini-lathe, and make wood chips, along with some tops, etc. Leave your pets home for this show, because of farm animals.
Colorfest just keeps rolling along. I'll be at the same location again this year, #93, just inside the entrance to the Community Park in Thurmont, MD.
I added an event, which is a fund raiser for Elkton's Union Hospital, on Oct. 26. I'll be inside, so weather won't be an issue. You are encouraged to come hungry!
The Patuxent Wildlife Festival is another of those 'bucket list' opportunities for you. It's just one day, and worth the trip!
I've added the Holiday Craft Fair at Salem Community College to my itinerary. It is also a one day show, and affords my New Jersey followers an opportunity catch up with me on their own turf!
I'll add more information in my next newsletter.
See you at a show!
