It's feeling like spring - sort of. It's time for a fun cabin fever reliever local art & gift fair.
Treasures of the Earth will be March 28 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the Unitarian Church, 835 W. College St. Over 20 artists will be selling cool things made of natural or recycled materials. A book sale will also be going on at the church.
Also, calling all folk music fans and lovers of dulcimers. Dulcimer Day in Duluth festival will be held May 2. Concerts will be at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Classes include mountain dulcimer, ukulele, autoharp, and guitar. Advanced registration is recommended for classes. Vendors will be open for business 10AM-3 PM . A day concert ticket is required during concert time. See the schedule, performer information, and registration form - and SPONSORS - at www.DulcimersInDuluth.com
Finally, I'd like to announce July 18 Woman-Made:Marvelous Things Made by Northland Women. The Coppertop Church will be filled with about 30 regional artists. The fairs are a great place to buy affordable one-of-a-kind locally-made gifts.
Thanks for all the support of attendees at the fairs. It's a task to put the events together. I'd like to think they are good community contributions to increase the local economy and local knowing each other status. A part of me will always be about learning - and these events are also great to keep on learning.
