Come To The Calico Arts And Crafts ShowMar 15th, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Uncategorized
If you’ve caught Spring fever, it’s likely you’re looking for just the thing to spruce up your garden, your home or yourself. You can find it all at the Calico Arts and Crafts Show in Moultrie, Ga., March 19 and 20. Make your backyard a main attraction with an ornate, decorative birdhouse or birdfeeder or concrete planter from Green Oaks Center, a local United Way agency. You can compliment it with a seasonal wreath or floral arrangement from April Sellars of Moultrie, GA who will have a variety of vivid colored wreaths in store for you. Bring nature indoors with an original songbird lamp, wall hanging, or table piece, handcrafted on the beautiful coast of Maine by Bill and Beth Fewell.
The Fewells are avid bird watchers. For the past 18 years their business has been built around Bill’s carving and Beth’s painting of the shorebirds and songbirds, native to coastal Maine. Each design is original and realistic.
Twelve years ago, because of popular demand, they started Songbird Collectibles, reproducing their favorite birds from a wood by-product. A reproduced carving is like a print to an artist. Each reproduction is hand painted and individually mounted on driftwood.
Ladies can add a twist to their wardrobe with any of the hand crochet, intricate knot necklaces available from Pine Knoll Shores, N.C. crafter Shirley Baker. The Carolina native designs and creates fiber necklaces from hand cut silks, organza, ribbon and fibers.
Each piece is woven and tied to silk cords. The Hydrangea flower is her signature design using silk for the petals and a pearl or vintage bead for the center.
From ornamental iron home and garden décor, to painted glass and antiques, to whimsical painted children’s furniture and accessories…it’s all together in one location.
Don’t forget all the wonderfully delicious gourmet delights to savor and so much more. These items are lovingly made by local artisans and crafts people so you’ll feel really good supporting the local economy while acquiring unique gifts for your friends and family. Clogging teams from around the South will entertain the crowds on both days.
