We have been invited to the Historic Deerfield Museum Store for a Pop-Up Shop on Saturday, July 29th! Historic communities are quite common in Massachusetts (Coggeshall Farm, Plimoth Plantation, Lexington/Concord, to name a few) and we always have a great time checking out the antiques, architecture, and learning about the days of old. 

I've been told by friends that Deerfield offers all this and more, plus they have a very nice Museum Store to check out!  That's where I will be, demonstrating rug hooking and chatting it up with visitors, who like me, enjoy getting lost among the past.  Please come visit if you are in the area!
