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.

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!
