Remember The Year of Living Dangerously? A great movie and a great concept - to name the year, thereby infusing it with intention. 2016 is haliagrace's breakout year, our first year with our new name and website, our new, eft-tastic look, and new approach to getting known (umm, that new approach would be getting off our duff and doing all the tasks that need to be done!). I'm so psyched about all of this I should probably name it The Year of Living Enthusiastically. Too long? How about The Year of Being Graceful? I know I'm about as graceful as an eft but maybe dedicating the year to grace will help it grow.
So what's going on this year?
May 7 -- The Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center's fundraising event in Tannersville, NY. 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (I will be open until at least 5 pm - after that I will pack up, sit down, and enjoy the fabulous live music). Food, crafts, wildlife displays and birds of prey demonstrations, raffles, and live music. Stop on by!
June through September - haliagrace plans to be at the Delhi Farmers Market in Delhi, NY. Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
July 4th weekend... or thereabouts... rumor has it a Craftskills Midsummer Picnic event is a distinct possibility. We're eyeing Treadwell's Stagecoach Run as the place to create this Shakespearean pickanick, arts event, and sale.
August 27 -- "Livestock" -- a fun Bovina based event with music and shenanigans and a few select craft vendors.
September 4 - Bovina Farm Day -- a wonderful family event promoting the working farms of my super awesome town. This year it looks like farming and local makers will join together to make the event that much more wonderful.
November 12 and 13 -- The Craftskills. This is the Coachella of local arts and artisans. This is the weekend you do not want to miss. The best and the coolest will be selling their wares. We're working on making this a town wide event with other venues and other events riding on our handmade coattails. It's gonna be YUGE.
