The fall craft fair will open its gates at 10 a.m. and continue till 5 p.m. According to the Craft Fair Chairman Carolyn Lester, "Last year's rescheduling of the soci- ety's summer event was a won- derful opportunity for us to fit right in with 'Boast the Coast' and 'Coast Day' festivities." She said that a few of the fall fair's crafts have a nautical theme and many artisans also participated in the highly successful July fair." Lester said that more than 60 ar- tisans will display their craft work at the fair. Artisans will present ship and boat replicas, fish motifs and scenes depicting the sea. Also included in the show will be paint- ed furniture, wooden toys, fanci- ful jewelry, Nantucket Light bas- kets, one-of-a-kind Santas, prima- tive country dolls and antique re- produciton furniture. Several local crafters are regis- tered for the fair. They hail from Millsboro, Rehoboth, Milford and Lincoln. They include Lewes artists Mike Hair and his Shaker- and Arts and Crafts-inspired fur- niture, Steve Rogers' historic ship and boat models and painted fur- niture by Patricia Friedman- Wright of Dewey Beach. Ex- hibitors also will be coming from New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsyl- vania, North Carolina, Florida and Tennessee. According to Lester, a few spaces are still available.
