Celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mary Read more [...]
Over 20 years ago, Carrie Marcotte, Bernadette Hoppe, and Gwennor Jones had a vision to create a marketplace for local women to sell handcrafted creations. This vision evolved into Women’s Gifts. It has outgrown three different venues, enjoyed changes in leadership, and emerged as the pre-eminent local art and craft show. When Gwenn Jones moved to Paris, Monica Brown and Kathy Shiroki joined our team. It is now time for Women’s Gifts to find equally creative minds so we may step down. As the founders of Women’s Gifts, we are excited to partner with the West Side Stitchery collective as they begin to take over our beloved event to make it their own.
We look forward to seeing the energy and creativity that Jillian, Carlene, and Heather (the West Side Stitchery collective) will bring to Women’s Gifts. This event has been a source of tremendous pride and we are thrilled that we found the perfect successors to carry on the tradition of supporting local women’s creativity.
