Update for August '09

Well, it's been a week since the fair in Bridgehampton, and even though it's over, I haven't been able to slow down at all. I have a few custom orders to complete, some new designs I want to work out, and more fairs coming up that I have to put together things for.

I want to thank everyone who came by my tent at the fair last Saturday. It was great to meet some new people, learn what type of handknits interest people the most, and be able to sell some of my adorable handknits to you. It was simply precious to see the looks on the faces of the little ones who were given a new toy to love.

Autumn is coming up soon, and the holidays are not long after that. It's never too soon to think about gifts, especially when they are handmade to order and take a little while to put together. So come check out and for some fabulous gift ideas. If you don't see what you're looking for, e-mail me, and I'll do my best to design it for you.

August Birthdays

Wishing everyone who has a birthday in August a totally fabulous birthday!!! It just occurred to me that my green or peridot colored cupcake purse is a very stylish way to celebrate your birthday this month. I also just took a pic of my cupcakes that were made with a pale green frosting yarn and other complimentary colors. Happy Birthday and I hope you enjoy this yumminess!!!

Bridgehampton Historical Society Annual Heritage Fair – Saturday, August 8, 2009

For people who enjoy going to outdoor festivals and fairs, I will have a booth at the upcoming Bridgehampton Historical Society’s Annual Heritage Fair. I will be selling my items from Abigail’s Knits and Pie Fairy Princess, as well as items made especially for this fair, and I will also be taking orders for custom items.

According to this article in

The Fair will take place on Saturday, August 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Corwith House on Montauk Highway. This year’s event celebrating Bridgehampton’s rich history will be bigger than ever and include a craft fair, a program on Long Island’s birds of prey by the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center and a puppet show by Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre. Long Island Folk artists will demonstrate their talents under a tent all day, and a vintage baseball doubleheader will pit Smithtown’s Atlantics against the Bridgeport, Connecticut, Orators. Blacksmithing by James DeMartis in the historic Strong Wheelwright Shop will complement a vintage tractor and farm engine display. A large model train exhibition will be run by the Gerry Manders in the society’s Engine Barn. Live music will be provided by Americana band Edna’s Kin under a huge tent. Admission is only $5 for adults, and children under 12 get in for free.

Here is a map of the Corwith House in Bridgehampton at 2368 Montauk Highway (although Google Maps says it’s actually Sag Harbor), with links for driving directions.
