I’m appearing at events every weekend this month:
I’m tabling for Trees & Hills tomorrow (Saturday, February 18) at the Snow Day Celebration Gift & Craft Fair in Keene, NH. If you’re in the area, come say hi! It runs from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Marriott Hotel, 72 Railroad Street in the heart of downtown. There’s also an Ice & Snow Festival downtown that day, with ice sculptures and other hoopla. Fun!
Visit me at the Trees & Hills table at the 6th annual Stars & Skulls Crafty Craft Fair! Organized by Pioneer Valley Roller Derby co-founders Pink Panzer & Bazooka Joe, Stars & Skulls is the Valley’s original DIY alternative craft fair. It’s also my fourth weekend in a row tabling at art & craft fairs!
The fair will features dozens of tables of locally made jewelry, clothing, knick-knacks, housewares, tasty treats, comics and much more! PVRD will also have a merch/info table.
The fair is from 10 am to 4 pm at the American Legion Hall at 162 Russell St. (AKA Route 9) in Hadley, MA.
As always, admission and parking are free.
Make forest comics with me this coming Sunday 8/21 at the Conway Scenic Railroad Station in North Conway, NH. Work on your Woods anthology submission in a beautiful setting! It’s one of many great activities at the 8 Days of Weeks White Mountain Cultural Festival, celebrating 100 years of the Weeks Act (you know, the one that established the US National Forests?) every weekend in August.
Oh hey, I’m doing a thing this weekend:
Make forest comics with Weeks Act Comics Artist Marek Bennett (who will also lead a musical “Forest Jamboree”) and cartoonist Colin Tedford this coming Sunday 8/14 at Weeks State Park in Lancaster, NH.
