In Vermont: Review of Craft, Winter

Cold. Bone-cracking cold. Face and embrace it, then retreat to work and get the words out.Snow road in Vermont So many events covered, artisans, artists, knitters, entrepreneurs, designers met. Deep in winter is a good time to go through the vault of photos and bring things to light.

Whimsical cupcakes of fiber.

Have one.

June’s Knit Designs & Stuff was seen at a Higganum Village Farmers Market with whimsical handmade recycled crafts, including felted animals and birds, dryer balls, toys for cats. And a tray of knit cupcakes spangled with tiny beads, topped with a fuzz confection in bright colors. June Cassady of Manchester (CT) is the owner and creator, and she can also be found at the Old Saybrook Farmers Market during its seasonal run, and at other venues during warmer weather. Again, the importance of a clear label or tag helps people find a maker even years or decades after an encounter with your product. Because while no web site could be found, a Facebook page led to the phone number for a way to contact this creative person: (860) 690-2784.
