This weekend, three of our members will be enjoying the summer breezes near the water. Hester, of Hester's Studio, will be venturing up to the lovely city of Hudson to take part in their first Annual Hudson Summerfest, in Henry Hudson Riverfront Park on Saturday. Not only will there be a crafts tent, but music, food, local authors and much more.

Down-river a bit, you'll find Sue, of Digilio Designs, in a equally idyllic location at Garrison Landing on the Hudson for the Garrison Riverside Art and Craft Fair. This show is in its 48th year and runs both Saturday and Sunday.

Finally, if lakes are more to your liking, then Cooperstown might be your ideal destination. Kathryn, of HuzzahHandmade, will be participating in Art by the Lake, sponsored by the Fennimore Museum, on their expansive front lawn on Ostego Lake in historic Cooperstown NY. This show will be on Saturday, and features many fine artists, great food, music and local craft brews. 

Please join our members for a delightful weekend celebration of summer in all it's splendor.

This Saturday at ReMADE Handmade Boutique, 133 Main Street, Beacon NY, you will have the opportunity to meet one of our long time, very gifted members, Sue of DigilioDesigns. You are probably familiar with some of Sue's work from this blog and from seeing her beautiful things at local shows, but this time, she will be presenting the original art that inspired many of her designs. You'll enjoy being able to linger over these one-of-a-kind pieces, discovering all the details. Sue even uses gold leaf and mica, as well as beeswax, in some of her original work!

The show opens on Saturday, August 12 from 6 - 8PM, and runs for the rest of the month. It's also Second Saturday in Beacon, so there will be lots to explore. This would be the perfect time to take a trip to Beacon, enjoy a glass of wine, some conversation and grab the opportunity to own one of Sue's originals. Here's a link to the shop: ReMADE
