This Sunday two of our makers are heading to White Lake N.Y. in the beautiful Catskills and to the site of the original Woodstock Festival to kick off the opening weekend of The Harvest Festival at Bethel Woods.  The Hudson River Exchange is co-sponsoring the event and will have their own "Outpost" tent featuring a juried selection of artisans, making opening day even more special. Hester, of Hester's Studio, will bring her hand-built figurative ceramics and home decor. Kathryn, of Huzzah! Unique, Handmade Wearables, brings a large selection of her luxury hand knits and felted accessories

So many great reasons to come "back to the garden" in the beautiful Catskills, meet our Makers and enjoy celebrating opening day!
