I visited the Grand Lake Stream Folk Art Festival for the first time last weekend in Grand Lake Stream, Maine. So many sights and sounds: craft booths, demonstrations, food, music. Had a great time talking to artisans. Here are some highlights.
Fly Tying - Jim Merlihan, Darlington, MD. (Seeing this reminded me of fly fishing with my dad).
Hand Spinning - Karen Cornell of CrowsRise Farm, Anson, ME.
Traditional Wooden Snowshoes - Robert Howe of Maine Guide Snowshoes, Bingham, ME.
Handmade Instruments - Thomas Knowles of Dragonfly Instruments, Lee, ME.
I'd highly recommend marking your calendars for a visit to Downeast Maine in time for the Grand Lake Stream Folk Art Festival next year!--Janyce
