Upcoming Events and Appearances
The next Bedlam Farm Open House is Columbus Day Weekend, Saturday October 10th and and Sunday October 11th. Hours are Saturday 11-4 and Sunday 12-4. Bedlam Farm is located at 2502 State Route 22 Cambridge NY 12816. Have a look at what will be going on…..
Here’s the artist’s who will be there…..
Carol Law Conklin will be showing and selling her batiks based on Nature, horses, and myths. But it’s not just her originals that are for sale. She also has trivets, cutting boards, cards and her batiks printed on fabric, which makes them much more affordable and allows you to use them in your own sewing.
Kim McMillan will be helping out in the School House Gallery and selling her original felted purses. Each with a special button.
Karen Heenan will have some of her wonderful functional art made from repurposed materials.
Jane McMillen will be back with her wonderful soft sculpture pin cushions.
Kathleen Nohe will have her wrapped stone necklaces and earrings.
And Suzy Fatzinger (who I named my sheep Suzy after) will be selling her hand spun and knit fingerless gloves.
And outside I’ll have the Found Object Sculptures of farmer and artist Ed Gully. Ed’s been making art as long as he’s been farming. I think this is the first time any of it will leave his farm.
And, of course, I’ll have some of my work and will be selling Jon’s books too.
Then there are the Poets. Reading their work and selling their books. Mary Kellogg will be there with her new poetry book “How to Dance”. And Doug Anderson, with his latest book “Medicine Horse”.
And Pamela Rickenbach from Blue Star Equiculture will be at Bedlam Farm with their work horses Foxy and Merlin.
And Jon and Red and Fate will be herding the sheep and you can meet the donkeys Lulu and Fanny. And you’ll also meet my new pony Chloe. Flo will no doubt be in many laps and the hens will be pecking around looking for bugs and things to eat.
While you’re here, visit the town of Cambridge NY, just 5 minutes away. There’s big stuff happening in town over the weekend, It’s garage sale day and many of the stores will have sidewalk sales. You can visit Connie and Marilyn at Battenkill Books . Have Breakfast, Lunch or coffee and dessert at the Round House Cafe. Visit the Cambridge Artisian Market and Hubbard Hall Store. Don’t miss Heather at the bead shop, Over the Moon Beads, which sells more than just beads (I love her chakra candle myself). And all the Antique shops .
And if you like Consignment shopping don’t forget to visit Nikki and Vicky at NV Unique Boutique and Consignments, just down the street from Jacks Out Back Antiques. You can also have breakfast or lunch at Country Girls Diner on Main Street and get good food and snacks at the Cambridge Co-op.
Jacks Out Back is just one of the many antique stores and Galleries on Main Street….
And NV is just one of the Consignment shops.
