Stop by during the Cabin Fever Reliever Tour for conversation in front of the fire, a cup of hot cider and to browse the NH-made, handcrafts of artisans gathered in our common room.

Lucy Nichols of New England Handwork, Canterbury, has been snugged up tight to fire during these cold weeks, knitting reversible wool/alpaca hats, mittens that double as puppets and puppets that double as mittens, and a child’s dress. Lucy also rescues, mends and finishes the vintage projects that linger in New England attics. She’ll have a rescued crazy quilt pillow for sale this year.

Misty Batchelder of Our Place Farm, Loudon, will be selling her hand-braided rugs, handspun yarn, and the lovely condiments she put up all summer long. She will also be demonstrating her crafts,

Cindy Lord of Peterborough works with wool fabric using a traditional technique from the early 1800s for making rag-rugs, mainly for the hearth. She cuts strips of wool and coils them, or gathers the strips and then sews them together to make small decorations, ornaments or pins. This technique has been called "Standing Wool" or more recently, "Quillie Rugs." Her current favorite projects are sheep ornaments and pins, snowmen and pumpkins. She also enjoys making garlands and Penny Rugs, mostly traditional pennies or circle designs

Lynn Littlefield of Concord of Unicorns, Dragons and Other Friends draws delightful creatures that adorn bookmarks, stationary, and other paper goods. From horses to hounds and dragons to the denizens of the New Hampshire woodlands, Lynn captures them in a friendly and natural style.

Susan Reid of Hopkinton also works in wool, with hand-knitted toy animals, felted purses and pots, and knitted placemats.

Noki Blanchard of Noki Pottery will be selling her hand-made crockery.
