Fall is def­i­nitely in the air as some of the trees are start­ing to change and it is get­ting cooler at night. Some peo­ple are breath­ing a sigh of re­lief to get away from those muggy dog days of sum­mer, and some are not as ex­cited as that means cold win­ter nights, jack­ets, boots and high heat­ing bills are around the cor­ner. Un­for­tu­nately we can­not stop time so we have to grin and bear it and move for­ward. So here's to hop­ing we don't have as se­vere win­ter as the Farm­ers’ Al­manac is say­ing.

Mart­in­town Mill

and artists to­gether in­side the mill on Sun­day - crowded but also cosy. We also worked up­stairs where the last of our win­dows are still to be re­paired, so we were work­ing amid the dust and clut­ter. Next week will be the last for most of our ven­dors be­cause the Sept. 24-25 week­end is also the Ap­ples and Art tour. Anne Cadotte will be do­ing her thing with veg­gies and pre­serves (she is ap­pre­ci­ated as much for her cheer­ful­ness and kind­ness as for her an­chor­ing of the out­side group). Jo Sweet cer­tainly de­serves the name – her baked goods are in high de­mand by ev­ery­one who has tried them. Linda Longtin and Linda Brady with batik and tie dye and jew­ellery re­spec­tively, are as­sets to the mill ven­dors, and we are also happy to see the re­turn of Linda's jams and good­ies.

For those who want to nosh or take home sup­per, Thai by Toy will feed their needs, and Pink will pro­vide the hand­made soaps and bath prod­ucts. This two­some of Lori and Su­san has been here at dif­fer­ent times dur­ing the sum­mer, and we cer­tainly ap­pre­ci­ate hav­ing them. In­side the mill, Bar­bara Dar­ling lives up to her name. She paints beau­ti­fully and knits gems which will be ap­pre­ci­ated by cold hands in the win­ter. John Sims will be show­ing his strik­ing land­scapes, and Gerda Sch­warz brings her fam­ily of bears. Up­stairs, the mu­seum will be open and Bead­ing by Barb will present a va­ri­ety of styles of jew­ellery made with semi-pre­cious stones and chains. See you Sun­day!
