>30th ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF TRADITIONAL CRAFTS
>Saturday, September 17, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. in and around the Museum and 
>North Congregational Church
>
> From butter churning to wood turning, skills that demonstrate ingenuity, 
> industry, and accomplishment come alive at the Festival of Traditional 
> Crafts! Named a "Fall 2005 Top Ten Event" by the Vermont Chamber of 
> Commerce, the Festival of Traditional Crafts brings together artisans and 
> experts whose knowledge and talents fill gaps in our contemporary 
> understanding of the natural world. Since its first incarnation as part 
> of the Museum's education program, the Festival has helped preserve, pass 
> on, and in some cases revive, skills that were once common in northern 
> New England. Learn to create candles and quilts, soap and cider, barrels 
> and dolls. Bring questions for an old-time orchardist, herbalist, dowser 
> or boat builder. The Festival of Traditional Crafts preserves a way of 
> learning that pays tribute to the artisans whose inspiration and stories 
> echo the words of their teachers ... and their teachers before them. The 
> Festival would not be possible without strong support from businesses and 
> individuals whose contributions make this tradition stronger every year.
