Old Schwamb Mill Craft Show & Sale Saturday 11am-7pm Arlington, MA

For the second year in a row I am proud to participate in the Old Schwamb Mill Craft Show and Sale.  This Saturday from 11am-7pm, thirteen artisans will be on site at the Old Schwamb Mill to sell hand-made arts and crafts.  The Mill will be open to the public and a portion of all proceeds will go toward the preservation and conservation of the historic mill building.

In a hollow on the Mill Brook in Arlington, Massachusetts, a woodworker today is making exquisite hand-turned oval frames on 19th century lathes in a wooden mill building dating from the time of the Civil War. The historic Old Schwamb Mill site itself survives as a continuously operating site where, for more than three hundred years, immigrant Puritan, Yankee, and German entrepreneurs harnessed the free water power of a narrow, fast moving brook to run machines and develop a series of family-owned businesses.

Please note that the Shaker Workshops showroom is directly across the street from the mill and that there will be Shaker Workshops items available for sale at the mill during the Craft Show and Sale.

This was a wonderful event last year and it promises to be one again this year.  Please stop by, bring the family, and enjoy some pre-Thanksgiving shopping.  There is free off street parking available.  See you on Saturday.
