Festivals Flourish To Usher in Autumn
This weekend promises to be very exiting for Hudson Valley Etsy. Our members will be featured in "craft villages" in two states!
First, let's travel to The Garden State, New Jersey, to visit Kathryn, of HuzzahHandmade who will be one of over 150 artists and craftspeople at Rose Squared Productions Fine Arts and Crafts Show, in Upper Montclair, N.J. on Saturday and Sunday. Anderson Park will be home to 170 mini galleries and boutiques featuring etchings, oils, watercolor, photography, wearable fiber, jewelry, glass, leather, wood, clay and much more. 10 - 5 each day.

Next, the quaint village of Sharon Springs, N.Y. (of The Fabulous Beekman Boys fame) will be hosting its annual Harvest Festival. A special feature of the festival is the Etsy Makers' Village, featuring a juried selection of fine craftspeople. Hudson Valley Etsy is well-represented by Gwen of Beyond The Picket Fence; Erin and Corey of Harp and Thistle; Sarah of SoHandmade; and Sue of digiliodesigns.
