As I’ve mentioned in other posts, Vermont was hit hard by Tropical Storm Irene. Thankfully, communities are recovering quickly with help from neighbors, friends, and local government.
Vermont is open for business!
Now is a great time to come to Vermont for a weekend getaway. Vermont’s Department of Tourism predicts a spectacular foliage display this year.
For your amusement, I present the Foliage Forecaster. Oohhh…ahhhh…
If you check out the forecast for October 1 – 2, you’ll see that central Vermont will be in mid-peak to peak foliage. That’s good news because…
…the Vermont Crafts Council is trying something new this year – the first (and hopefully annual) Foliage Vermont Open Studio Weekend!
There are 174 artists participating in 147 locations across Vermont.
And that peak foliage in early October? My studio is in the middle of it! This is the perfect time to come visit my studio. I have a great view of Camel’s Hump and you can feel free to enjoy a picnic on my lawn.
On October 1 -2, come for a tour of my studio, demonstrations, and savings up to 50% off seconds and discontinued styles. There will also be selection of bookbinding supplies available for purchase.
I’m studio number #139 in the orange Studio Tour Guide.
There are several ways to get your hands on a map:
Depending on your route, you should double-check for any road closures that are still in effect due to Irene. The State of Vermont created this awesome map that has the most up-to-date information on road closures. It also includes other information, such as the location of local wineries and orchards.
In my next post, I’ll talk about the specific studios open in central Vermont.
