Mad River Valley Crafts Fair

One of the exhibitors at the Craft Fair will be Baby's Breath Quilts, a Barre VT quilt maker.

The Mad River Craft Fair is being held this weekend at Kenyon's Field in Waitsfield VT. I've been to the fair several times and always enjoyed seeing the wide variety of great crafts and artwork on display. We've bought a few items over the years, most notably some great Alpaca sweaters for the grand kids. It's a fun event to attend with very good food, a wide variety of crafts and excellent live music (a swing band on Sunday!). I recommend it highly and can almost guarantee you will find something you just have to buy. It's that good.

If you have children in tow, don't hesitate to go. They have plenty of activities geared toward the younger set to keep them entertained. In the meantime, you can stroll and browse pottery, wood crafts, paintings, jewelery (lots of jewelery), unique clothing, baskets, toys, furniture, and much more produced by area artisans.

This show has been going on for 30 years and features more than 100 of the region's top crafts people and artists. The show is put on by the Valley Players, a long time Waitsfield theater group. It is open Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sunday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Three demonstrations are given each day. I think I will try to get to the 1:00 Saturday demonstration by Michelle Wildflower (great name!) who is listed as an "alchemist." I don't know what that is but I want to find out.

The event is a fund raiser for a local theater group called The Valley Players.

By the way, that group is presenting some unique ten minute plays with the Vermont Playwrights this same weekend.

$3 admission, under 12 free. See you there!
