Adirondack Museum to host Fabric & Fiber Arts Festival

Regional artisans and crafters will offer handmade and specialty items for sale in a day-long marketplace.

Visitors of all ages can use vintage treadle sewing machines to make souvenir balsam sachets in the Mark W. Potter Education Center from 11 am - 3 pm.

The Adirondack Museum is pleased to support the work of STOP Domestic Violence by holding a collection drive as part of the festival.

Visitors are asked to bring donations of new or gently used bedding, blankets, towels, and washcloths to support STOP Domestic Violence, and learn more about valuable services provided in the North Country.

STOP Domestic Violence began as a grass root membership organization called Women, Inc. in 1977-78. The group offered the first organized service for battered and abused women in Clinton County and provided use of a temporary refuge room where women could come with their children in an emergency for a few days.

For information about this and all that the museum has to offer, please call 352-7311, or visit www.adirondackmuseum.org.
