These buttons will become active as we get items to show/display for them.
We guess the phrase “Virtual Online Olde Thyme Fayre” is truly an oxymoron. We admit that. However, we don’t want to completely cancel the OTF - but we DO want everyone to be safe. For the past couple of months we have been deciding how to do things differently and what will just not be possible.
We would still like to showcase what people have grown or made at home - but we aren’t asking anyone to bring anything to the Barn or Museum - and we won’t have judging or ribbons. But in this digital age, pictures can be taken and emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org for display on our website. We ask that everything be sent before Sept. 5 and that photos be limited to two or three per item. Suggested categories might be hanging baskets, flower arrangements, produce (picked or grow-ing), herbs, individual plants, or full landscapes. And we always like sunflowers! Handmade items could be anything knitted, crocheted, sewn, woven, painted, etc. Please include your name and a description so that people know who to compliment.
There will be a video available showing Kim Mazey operating the antique printing press, and this will remain on our website.
Lana Verbic and Carole Krupa are the ladies who create the Kids Krafts in “Charlotte’s Corner” in the Barn. We can’t do anything in person, but they are working on some craft ideas to share online. And they are getting help from Charlotte’s daughter, Stephanie Wike.
Unfortunately, the ever-popular “Twins Bake Sale” will have to wait until next year as
will in-person demonstrations of olde-thyme skills and music.
But, we have added something new - A scavenger hunt with a reward! This will focus
on historic information found by walking around downtown Twinsburg....details are
being worked out.
And we are still planning....hopefully we will have even more to share in the next
Newsletter .....and on Facebook and our website. Stay tuned!
