Wine & Scarecrows — Save the date!

leave a comment »

We will be having some very special guests at this year’s Wine & Scarecrows on September 17. Not only will welding artist Deb Ewoldt be joining us again, several other artisans will be demonstrating their craft as well. Those include woodworker Ryan Bonjour, glass fuser Jordan Llewellyn, painter Ann Olsson, hand rug hookers Bev Pyle and Eleanor Vanous of Between the Rivers Rug Hooking, and potter Larry Skeries.

Some of the wonderful art and fine craft items you can purchase at our silent auction include hand quilted items, wood pieces, raku-fired pottery, hand dyed silks, photography, and items that represent the arts of fine cooking and gardening!

Len Swaitly of Moments in Thyme Catering has created a delicious menu for us, that will go well with a great selection of wine and desserts, and vocalist Deb Flammang-Roper will be a wonderful musical backdrop for our garden party. We’re so grateful to our Artist Patrons who help make the event possible – including Meyer’s Nursery, Waterloo Implement, Yantis & Associates and Technology Staff Development, Inc. Also, a big thanks goes out to Bartels Lutheran Retirement Community for loaning party supplies and to while wholesaler Darren Winkowitsch for giving us special consideration for our evening’s wine selection.

Save the date – invitations will be mailed soon! Or better yet, purchase your tickets now at http://www.cedarvalleyarboretum.org/wands.asp.
