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.
