Sew Bee Mine at 2019 Lititz Rotary Club Craft Show August 10th

Next big stop for Sew Bee Mine is on 
Saturday August 10th 
from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the 
2019 Lititz Rotary Club Craft Show

(on Sat July 13th will bee at The Phoenixville Farmer's Market)

I've been hearing about Lititz Rotary Craft Show for years. 
It's HUGE! as in 50,000 people attend. 
I got pretty wiped out of inventory at the Tinicum Arts Festival, 
so going to be very busy for the next few weeks! 
Mark your calendars! The Rotary Club of Lititz Craft Show is hosting its annual outdoor craft show on Saturday, August 10, 2019. The event was launched in 1979 with only local vendors setting up on a single block along East Main Street in Lititz. Now it has grown into one of the top craft shows on the East Coast, drawing 700 crafters from throughout the United States and Canada. The craft show, always held the second Saturday in August, draws upwards to 50,000 people to the heart of Lititz. The show is held along the first four blocks of East Main Street, along three blocks of Broad Street and in Lititz Springs Park. Several local vendors will offer food stands as well. Admission is free!

The array of crafts includes pottery, jewelry, children’s clothing, knitted sweaters, quilts, baskets, photography and artwork, wooden decor, kitchen items, aprons, hats, wreaths, brooms, candles, dolls and much, much more.

The money raised through renting out spaces to the crafters, subtracting expenses, is given right back to the community. The Rotary Club of Lititz donates to nonprofits such as Lititz Springs Park, Lititz Library, Warwick Community Ambulance Association and local fire companies.

Sew Bee Mine Phoenixville Farmer's Market

Fabrics from all over the world inspire me every day, 
such as African dashiki body and tail in this wandering merman
and the owl doll using vintage saris from India

 Vintage Hawaiian Barkcloth Apron
Two Dashikis and Dutch Wax Batiks were used to create the apron on the left and a tea towel from Ireland was the inspiration for the one on the right.

Carpet bags using vintage needlepoints from Israel. 

The big outer pocket on this carpet bag is Hmong hand embroidery from Cambodia

Mexican Embroidery on Half Apron

                 Love using American vintage cross stitch samplers to make aprons.

Here's a dress with batiks from India
