Spring fever is upon us all. The desire to jump in the car and visit those locations that the winter snow restricted us from has blossomed like crocus. The pandemic is still in the news and quite honestly still puts limitations on our comfort level.
Most of us want to gather with friends and family and still keep ourselves and them as safe as possible. Many businesses and small shops have suffered greatly during this challenging year and the individual artisans and artists in Washington County, New York are no different. We need to have people once again see our wares and hopefully generate future sales.
Keeping everyone safe is becoming easier but avoiding crowds might still be essential. For that reason, ATWC is considering holding our Countywide Open Studio Event on two weekends in July, 9th-11th and 16th- 18th. It will be a bit more work for the Artisans/Artists but keeping our crowds manageable is so important.
We would appreciate your feedback on extending the event. If you could drop a line or two at firstname.lastname@example.org we would be grateful.

It’s been a hard year. Isolation, financial challenges, and health concerns have been the way of life for most people.
Artisans and Artists as well have been dealing with so many changes including how and IF they can safely share their wares with the public.
We at Artisan Trails in Washington County are hoping to get our signature event off the ground this July. The exact date has not been selected and we will publish the date well in advance.
Renewal of memberships as well as new member registrations are necessary to be included in the event and to be listed on our Trail Map and on our website.
Information about joining ATWC is included on the Join ATWC or Donate link on our website; www.artisan-trails.org .
