Here are a few of the fine crafters you will see at the show this weekend:

Maria Hormaza: Jewelry

The first fine crafter we would like to introduce to you is Maria Hormaza. Maria started working with arts and crafts at an early age. While achieving success and recognition in the Global Travel Industry for four decades, Maria continued to create custom and unique jewelry designs as a hobby. Upon retirement she decided to take jewelry making to a higher level, and has developed her award winning style of bead weaving using crochet technique to create jewelry with semi precious stones, sterling silver beads, crystal beads and Miyuki Delica seed beads. You can learn more about this artist HERE.

Paul Lambert: Hot Sauce

Next, we have Paul Lambert. Paul was told for years that his hot sauce was the best tasting hot sauce they have ever tried. Then, he decided to make his hot sauce available to the public. The rest is history! You can find Paul’s product in the Green Market section of the craft festival. You can learn more about his product HERE.

Michelle Zielecki: Photography

The final crafter we are going to share with you today is Michelle Zielecki. After years of taking photos as a hobby, Michelle decided to share them with all her friends. These pictures cover a range of topics. Most of them were taken while enjoying her other passions, fishing, and anything water related! She has done some special editing on some of the pictures and hopes you enjoy them. You can learn more about this artist HERE.

You will be able to meet the fine crafters mentioned above along with 100 other incredible artists! We look forward to seeing YOU at the show this weekend.
