Cedar Hill - Event

The 1st Annual (we hope) Fall Craft Fair and Silent Auction has come and gone. Much planning went into this even and that was evident. We were also very impressed by the quality of each handcrafted offering.  Andrea, was looking for artisans and she found them. As Creative Woodworking we are proud to be invited to the group.
While there, along with meeting many fellow crafters, we learned about the Cedar Hill Community and the types of continuing health care and assisted living options they are able to offer. As the expansion continues, they will be able to offer even more, which is great news for Windsor, VT and our surrounding towns.
Ready to enter, see the Village and meet some vendors?  Let's go!
The Community Room created a cozy space for Joan Butterfield's / Anne's Daughter Designs.
Great colors, do you agree?
Thistle Willow Farm with their handmade artisan soaps not only created a beautiful display with  many options, they get credit for the wonderful scents in this room.
Mike and Stacy Davis
Blu Butterfly Creations offers paper crafts of all sorts, cards, scrapbooks, altered art and more.

This jewelry box caught my eye specifically, very nice Toni!
Blu Butterfly Creations!!

Old Kemp Farm had the these little cuties made from Alpaca fur, how cool is that?
The Knitting Gnome / Nancy (and her husband, who you can't see, but I know is there) had so many choices. From yarn, fabrics, handmade crafts, buttons, hats, and, of course gnomes!  Check out their website for all the options.

The Knitting Gnome not only sells online, they have a retail store in St. Johnsbury, VT.


Continuing on....the very talented Andrea had her own display, hand crafted designs and originals in acrylic, watercolors and pastels.
 

Handcrafted Jewelry also - beautifully done!

In the Living Room were even more artisan's, from handcrafted fabric crafts and bracelets, wooden cutting boards, quilts, table runners and placements, and woven baskets. Gifts all over the place!

Glenna offers handmade greeting cards, journals and tatted items.

Creative Woodworking, handmade wooden cutting boards, a variety of designs and wood species.

Outside vendors had to deal with Mother Nature and mud due to the construction site. Next year, perhaps out front in the grass, or visitor parking, then folks will need to walk by them in order to enter the building.
Raymond and Cindy West of White River Jct., VT are Raycin Farms!!
Fudge was wonderful!!
The Regenesis Project, the goal is to help hardworking individuals in Haiti develop a better life.  It's quite something and the handmade projects are stunning.  Please take a look and help if you can.

Love this scarf!!
So, if you didn't attend the 1st Annual Cedar Hill Fall Craft Fair and Silent Auction, you should have :-) AND, if you see something you like, all featured vendors have links and/or phone numbers, so you can still shop for gifts from them. Artisan Quality Throughout. All hand chosen by Andrea Lapins, Activity Director at The Village at Cedar Hill. Well done Andrea and team!! Well done!!
