By far the best juried show in the area. Lot's of new very talented artists. Lot's of 'old favorites' as well. Very difficult to refrain from treating myself to so much more than I did -- and I did treat myself! Don't miss this show.

I felt like I was at a museum. The beauty and quality of everything was really stunning. This is an event I will attend every year. It is the best craft show I've ever been to because of the high caliber of the craftsmanship.
