We are very happy to announce that a great vendor and friends of the festival since the 1st one was held will be returning for our 12th >


A Touch of Glass … and then some Diane of  has been doing Stained Glass for more years than she care to admit to (lol); handcrafting everything from stained glass suncatchers, to windows, to whatever catches her fancy or someone else’s. Each sheet of glass is hand cut and inspired by the colors of springtime flowers, the crackle of an autumn fire, songs of the birds in summer, the babble of a winter brook and the whisper of the spirits in the trees. They are true works of art, great craftsmanship, and made with love.

She also carries Heat Bags filled with flaxseed and herbs for aromatherapy relief, and they smell great 🙂 Last, Diane has also been selling flags, pennants and banners which focus on honoring Northern European or Asatru traditions.
