Maplewood Y Craft Show – October 18

You’ll not be able to swing a dead cat at the 4th Annual Maplewood Y Craft Show, without hitting a Rochester Artisan!

Start checking off your holiday gift list by shopping among our 40 artisans. You can get a sneak preview on our website, Facebook page and event page.

But wait, there’s more! You can also visit with the Irondequoit Art Club, including a couple of demos:

12:30 to 1:00 – Drawing Portraits (David Pell)

1:00 to 1:30 – How to Tie One On – Creative Scarf Tying (S.A.M. Shrestha)

The FCTT Hi-Railers Model Railroad Club will be on hand as well. Club members will demo and display using craft techniques in model railroading.

9:30 to 11:00 – Demo of ‘Weathering’ for Realistic Effect

And here are all those Rochester Artisan members I was telling you about. This is our second year as a juried show and we’re confident you’ll love the variety and quality.

Park Ave Summer Art Festival Report

Park Ave Fest 2014

I went to the Park Ave Fest for the first time ever. Steve’s sister is in town and it was Steve’s idea! I’m usually all been-there-done-that about shows and festivals, know what I mean?

I had such fun! Who knew?? Not to name drop but I bought earrings for my mom from paper artist Rie Maywar of qq creations. Rie won 2nd Place at Spencerport Canal Days last weekend!

iPhone Covers

I wanted an iPhone case from the always smiling Jen Born of PS Enjoy Your Life, but my silly iPhone 5C was a tad too big so I exchanged it for this Enjoyablock.

Kingsley Street Artisan Soaps Park Ave Fest 2014

I was very excited to finally get to meet the most helpful/entertaining/enjoyable Kent Terpening, of Kingsley Street Artisan Soaps. I approached him to introduce myself – he recognized me from Facebook and jumped up and gave me a big hug! (Thanks for the gift!)

Rochester Artisans can boast about another blue ribbon winner (like we had anything to do with it, lol), Mary Catherman.

Proud Member Aluminum Sign
I got to say hey to a host of other Rochester Artisans too – so much fun! And very happy to see the plethora of yellow Proud Member of Rochester Artisans signs. Go us!

In other news, Steve bought 2 pieces of wall art, one of which is NOT sports-related! We fell for the fast-talking huckster selling the dog harnesses. Big apology to good friend, Jean Keane of JK Stitches – temporary insanity!? We even bought a Christmas gift. Jines never disappoints – we enjoyed a late lunch. Chocolate covered raspberry swirl cheesecake on a stick is way better than you’d think!

Previous Rochester Artisans conversations came flooding back to me. Holy shit – Coco-Bongos really exist! As do foam bow & arrows. And the sign guy – which interested Steve, much to my chagrin. He also came close to buying Shit on a Stick – a Buffalo Bills birdhouse with an outdoor thermometer mounted on it. (I moseyed on, hoping no one knew he was with me.) I explained to Steve & Barb about the ubiquitous Bathfitter.

The weird thing is, I truly spent the day like a true festival-visitor. More often, I find myself looking less at product and more at displays and set-ups. “Wow, a lot of work went into building that display – well done!” “Girl, you need some lights in this cave!” “Really? You thought this would be your demographic!?”

A fine, artful day!
