It’s January. It’s cold in Virginia. The holidays are over, our decorations are (mostly) put away. Maybe you know someone with a birthday coming up. Maybe you were hoping to find something more creative under your Christmas tree. Maybe you’re tired of watching football on the weekends. Maybe you have cabin fever (especially if you have little ones). Maybe you’re a jewelry artist who is burnt out after Christmas and needing some inspiration.
The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival is coming to the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly January 27-29. Mingle with the artists who make the beautiful things you see in each booth (over 250), and ask them to tell you the story behind a piece that you love. This is a juried show, which makes for a top-notch group of craftspeople including my favorite, Rona Fisher. There are also children’s theatre presentations, handmade goodies to eat, and artisans demonstrating their craft. More info: www.sugarloafcrafts.com
I’ve got free tickets to give away! I’ll send a pair of tickets to the first two people to email me with their mailing address. firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll update this when they’re gone, so don’t be shy.
