Every artist has a story to tell.
Every photograph, painting, sculpture or garment was born out of inspiration.
At the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival this weekend, there are more than 250 designers and artisans eager to tell you theirs.
"This award-winning three-day festival will showcase fine contemporary crafts that capture the spirit of the fall season," according to a release. "More than 250 of the nation’s finest craftspeople will be showcasing their one-of-a-kind pottery, sculpture, glass, jewelry, fashion, wood, metal, furniture, home accessories, photography and fine art. Festival goers will also enjoy specialty food purveyors, live music and children’s entertainment."
The festival runs Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium.
The festival moves to the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Gaithersburg on Oct. 12-14.
