A Celebration of American Craftsmanship, Wilton, CT
November 7th, 2005 / News, Road Trips / No comments
The Wilton, Connecticut Historical Society is once again sponsoring A Celebration of American Craftsman on Saturday and Sunday, November 12 & 13, 2005. Early buying on Saturday is from 8 to 10 AM and costs $25. General admission is $10 from 10 to 5 PM. Two or three rug hookers participate in this show, which is really incredible. Lots of great handmade stuff from furniture to miniature quilts. This year, for the first time, Tracy Jamar will be selling her fiber art at Wilton. Tracy not only hooks rugs, she owns Jamar Textile Restoration, repairing both rugs and quilts. This is a really fun, though expensive, show. Definitely worth the trip.
