/- 70 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Sept. 22 - Sept. 28, 2000 Lewes Historical Society Fall Craft Fair slated Sept. 30 Following what was termed by many as the best attended craft fair this past July, the Lewes His- torical Society's Fall Craft Fair, Saturday, Sept. 30, is positioned to live up to its growing reputa- tion as one of the area's best choices for seeing unique crafts and buying unusual gifts before the coming holidays. The annual fair, which has at- tracted 80 registered artisans, will be held from. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the Historical Complex, Third and Shipcarpenter streets, Lewes. The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 1, and admission is $2. According to Chairman Car- olyn Lester, many favorite arti- sans are returning to the juried show. "We're pleased that several professional craft people are mak- ing Lewes a must for both our summer and fall ventures. Two Lewes craftsmen, Mike Bair and his popular hand-crafted Shaker furniture, and Scott Blackson, who makes artistic soap creations, are returning exhibitors," Lester noted. "Other returning artisans such as Jo Ann Chandler with her orig- inal old-world-style Santa Claus- es draped in fine fabric and fur, and the magically whirling copper garden fountain creations of Ira Mesch generate lots of interest because their work is so unusual," she added. Lester said that her committee chose the timing of the craft fair for early fall because "it affords a great opportunity for show goers to enjoy the beautiful surround- ings of the historic complex and do some holiday shopping at a re- laxed pace." She said that the range of crafts on exhibit includes hand-made cloth dolls, bears, quilts, jewelry, dried flower arrangements, tapes- try bags, folk art-style painted fur- niture and wooden toys. Besides local mists and several others from Delaware, crafts peo- ple hail from New Jersey, Mary- land, Pennsylvania, New York; Ohio and North Carolina. Lester noted that the craft fair with its many items compatible with Lewes's nautical heritage and his- toric surroundings, has quickly become a tradition in artisan cir- cles and as part of the Boast the Coast activities and Coast Day the next day, it offers the community and visitors a wide variety of in- teresting Venues for the entire weekend.
