IMG_7581

Last weekend was one of Peters Valley’s rainiest craft fairs in history! Even though the weather was cold and wet, we saw this show as a great success, and it was because of everyone who came out. Thank you so much to all who attended! Your many compliments of the craftsmanship displayed and dedication to the craft fair mean so much to us here at Peters Valley. THANK YOU!

Thank you so much to our artist demonstrators and exhibitors for being a part of this show. We could not have a craft fair without you all and are so grateful that you chose to show your work through us. THANK YOU!

In case you missed this year’s craft fair, or you want to look back on any work you saw, or want to get a head start on your holiday shopping, all the 2023 exhibitors and their websites are listed on Peters Valley’s Craft Fair web page (Just scroll down past the craft fair info).

This year’s craft fair judges were Monica Hampton, Executive Director of The Furniture Society, and Katrin Zimmermann, jeweler and adjunct professor for Pratt Institute. They said it was a difficult decision, there was so much talent and fine craftsmanship displayed at the fair – you all should be proud! Congratulations to this year’s winners:

Gold Award/Best in Show: Corrinn Jusell of Made by Corrinn
Silver Award: Katie Strano of Heddle Over Heels
Bronze Award: Janis Cutler Gear of Nature’s Nest Pottery
Emerging Artist Award: Sarah Grace Cheek
Honorable Mention Award: Lisa Hess of Treehouse Crafts LLC

This year we had the pleasure of having music entertainment by Mike & Anne Baglione under the AG Pavilion and The Lost Ramblers, who were rambling from building to building to play their music.

Thank you to our delicious food vendors, too! This year we had oven-baked pizza from Emily’s Hearth, burgers, chicken fingers, and other warm comfort foods from The Barnyard, hot pretzels from Global Reach Industries, and fresh roasted cinnamon glazed nuts from Totally Nutz.

Finally, THANK YOU to our wonderful Craft Fair sponsors who help make this event a success for Peters Valley!

Save the Date for the 54th Annual Craft Fair: September 21-22, 2024! See you then!
