The Every Woman’s Arts & Crafts Spring Festival was held on May 9 at the Colvin Community Center in Radcliff. Organizers raised money from the gift basket raffle for SpringHaven Domestic Violence Shelter, and helped forge connections with other local artisans.
LaDonna Eastman, the organizer of the Spring Festival, reports that the event included “women artists and crafters from Radcliff, Fort Knox, Elizabethtown, Cecilia, Lebanon Junction, Rineyville, Bloomfield, Louisville, Prospect, Bowling Green, Glasgow, Russellville, Prestonsburg, Madisonville, Burlington, and Leitchfield in KY - and two from just across the river in Corydon and Jeffersonville, IN." Talk about buying local!
It was a fun filled day showcasing hand crafted items and art work created by female artisans in the central Ohio Valley region. Many of the vendors that participated have online stores through Etsy and are members of our very own Bluegrass Etsy Street Team (BEST). There were 12 Etsy shop owners at the festival in Radcliff that day! For those that were not aware of the Kentucky etsy team, by the end of the show they were aware of the benefits of joining the team, and many have already signed up as new members.
Here are some of the exhibitors that were at the show:
