Straw Shop News
We welcome all straw artists!
Thousands will flock to the annual Harvest Festival, held at All Saint’s Church in the town of Siddington, in Cheshire, England. Upon entering the church originally consecrated in 1521 visitors will have the rare opportunity to see thousands of corn dollies by corn dolly maker, dairy farmer, octogenarian and local historian Raymond Rush. Mr. Rush,who has been making corn dollies for the past 50+ years lives at the farm near to the church and sometimes sells corn dollies from his workshop. The Harvest Festival will be held (October 12 through November 2, 2014. )
The 26th Annual Winter Spanish Market will be held in Albuquerque November 29, 2014. The event held at the Albuquerque Hotel event draws between 7,000 and 10,000 people to view the work of nearly 100 artists. Be sure to seek out our straw artists there. Here is a link for more information.
