LUDLOW, Vt. – If you missed our July 1 Arts and Craft Festival, you’ll certainly want to attend our second special event of this summer, featuring quality artisan. The Society of Vermont Artists and Craftsmen’s 26th Annual Late Summer Arts and Craft Festival will be held on Saturday, Aug. 19 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., rain or shine, at the Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts, located on Route 103 south of Ludlow, Vt.
Juried crafts will feature water and oil paintings, folk art, primitives, jewelry, woodworking, photography, fabric products, pottery, handmade soaps, maple syrup, party dips and herbal products, hand woven items, and much more. There will be many of your favorite artisans returning for the August festival, as well as a variety of designs and products of new participants. New this year include: Marielle L’Allier (doll clothes), Richard and Vera Long (hand turned wooden bowls), Dona Nazareko (handmade baskets), and Patricia Turschman (jewelry).
Demonstrations by instructors at the Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts will take place throughout the day. Charles Dion will demonstrate the art of chainsaw carving. Food concessions will offer a variety of items which will tempt your appetite for lunch. The Lazy Cow will offer delicious ice cream. There will be children’s activities. Raffles and a silent auction will benefit the Fletcher Farm School.
The Society Craft and Gift Shoppe is also open.
Fletcher Farm School is also hosting a gigantic fabric sale on Saturday and Sunday in the large barn. Ginny Kottkamp a long time resident of Ludlow, and former Board Member of the Society of Vermont Artists & Craftsmen, has donated her very large collection of beautiful fabric to the Society. A very talented quilter, Kottkamp has retired from her craft and wanted others to enjoy the fabrics she has accumulated over the years.
The fabrics include 100 percent cotton, wool, and fleece. There will be small and large yardage, quilting books, arts and crafts supplies, dollhouse furniture, and a large assortment of patterns available for bargain prices.
Do not miss out on this great sale that benefits our Young Artist Scholarship Fund.
We hope you and your family will join us for another special festival.
