Event Description

I hope you will seriously consider coming to nearby Binghamton NY for some or all of the first annual NYS Gourd & Artisan Festival. We have classes you can take (see them on our chapter's website www.americangourdsociety.org/NewYork)

We have a variety of other artisans selling
handmade materials and teaching as well: Felt making, soap making, lotion making, spinning for example. We'd like to have more gourd artists as well as some carvers and basket weaving folks join us.  If you, or someone you know can join us, please tell them about the show and our website.

So far, Blue Whale Arts and Bonnie Eastwood will be selling gourd-related supplies, and we are getting raw gourds from Eli & Henry.  Fiber artists will be selling roving and everyone will be selling finished art as well. Again, we'd love to have more vendors so help invite people to join us for the show.

We're hosting a Pizza & Pasta Party Saturday evening with a variation of Show & Tell so that all artisans can be inspired by each other and develop new interests. Pre-registration details will be forthcoming.

We are also having a daily raffle/fund raiser with items donated by vendors, teachers and members. Can you make something to donate for the raffle? Or perhaps you can supply a small gift basket of supplies? I (Terry Noxel) will be the contact person for the Raffle so let me know if I can expect a donation from you!


If you are on Facebook, please like our event page Broome County Artisan Festival and invite your friends to like it too.  If you can help us get the word out for our first show, let me know and I will send you an email announcement you can forward to those you know who are in the northeast.
