The Berkshires, so much to do!

It seems that those who come to this area of Western Massachusetts, come expecting to leave enriched culturally and well fed with excellent food. I know that the many customers who have purchased a Toshiki and Maryszka shearling at The Berkshire Craft Show are always telling me where they have been, and what they are about to do on their weekend, always with a twinkle in their eye!

So how to get the most out of your weekend? There are a number of blogs and websites to inform you. One is The Berkshires, and I was so happy to see that they had the show listed on their calender. Another is The Berkshire View.

Why not make it a weekend of fine craft, come to the show and then visit some of the local galleries that support various mediums in American hand made.

(They have a page on their site with lots of good information.)

And when you come to The Craft Show, don't forget to talk to some of the artists that live in the area, like Dick and Dianne Muller, Ann Brauer all from not too far away Shelburne Falls.
Word of mouth is alway the best way to get new ideas.
Any comments here are also welcome.
Spread the word on things you love in the area.

Now in its 38th year, the Berkshire Crafts Fair will return to Monument Mountain Regional High School. The fair will showcase the work of 89 artists (36 new), carefully selected by jury for the quality and variety of their offerings. Visitors can expect a wide array of products and prices in each category of craft, from contemporary and traditional jewelry, to furniture, ceramics, textiles, glassware, and more. One hallmark of the fair is its breadth: the exhibition and sale draws master artisans from California to Florida to Maine. Visitors can see these artists at work on August 13th, or Demonstration Day, with thirty minute crafts demonstrations scheduled throughout the afternoon.
