For one weekend every year since 1995 the annual Expo Quoi de Neuf artisan sale has given the public the opportunity to shop for some of the best handcrafted creations of the eastern townships all in a beautiful autumn country setting. Approximately 40 accomplished artisans participate each year, but this year is going to be a little bit different...
The original founding committee of friends Judy Mullins, Debbie and Dodie Hornig, Anne Johnson and Mary Ann Martin decided to retire from their organizational duties, passing on the torch to friends Qita Reindler, Lucie Fiset, Lise Bourque, Theresa Goyette and myself Kara Needham. On the condition that we change the name, which we did to the 'Salon de l'artisanat de Sutton', our first, hopefully annual show, debuts tomorrow! With many returning favourites, and also many new, very creative artisans to choose from there is bound to be something for every taste, style and budget! We hope to see you there!!
Kara Needham is the founder and creator of Savonnerie de L'Estrie, a small manufacturer of handcrafted, all-natural and affordable artisan skincare in unique folk-art packaging.
