Now that Fall is officially here in New England being outdoors and enjoying this part of the country could not be better. Fall is my favorite time of year in a place where the weather is always changing and a huge part of life. If you have never been to New England in the Fall it should be on your short-list of places to visit.
We have had a lot of fun meeting many local SariBlue fans at our recent appearances and are looking forward to these next events;
First up we have been invited to attend The Craft Festival at Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA. This weekend long, curated event is co-hosted by the museum and a great group of folks at the art education focused Worcester Center for Crafts.
The Fruitlands Museum is a very unique place. The museum is home to collections of Shaker and Native American art and artifacts, stunning sprawling landscapes and vernacular portraits. Fruitlands’ past exhibits that have ranged from New England impressionist art to the current photography display: Witness to Global Conflict. The museum is a strong supporter of local artisans and crafts with their lovely museum shop NOA, which features outstanding work by local artisans.
Co-sponsor Worcester Center for Crafts is a unique educational collaborative working within the community to enhance and progress access to space, training, and resources for local artisans.
The Worcester Center for Crafts is New England’s Center for crafts education, advocacy and entrepreneurship. Established in 1856 as the Worcester Employment Society, the Center forged a tradition for economic empowerment by teaching immigrants the skills needed to create and sell crafts.
Today, The Worcester Center for Crafts is a non-profit, independent, community based arts organization, committed to providing quality craft education, supporting entrepreneurship in the arts, and promoting an appreciation for fine craft.
