JuliaClaire’s second Annual Holiday Artisan Event will be held November 2 in Preston


Fri, Oct 25th, 2013
Posted in Preston Arts & Culture

JuliaClaire has been a pioneer in the area of repurposing and recycling and many of its artisans create their art from recycled items. Arlene Woellert makes her American Girl fashions from clothing that cannot be sold at because of a tear, stain or because the item is outdated. Bonnie Thomas makes her rugs from plastic bags while Deb Thorson creates her Dew Drop Dishes from old dishes. Elaine Hellickson makes lights from old wine bottles, Doreen Bergo sews wool mittens from old sweaters while Nancy Gardner makes plastic bag holders from old jeans.

“We are very fortunate to have so many talented Artisans in our area and JuliaClaire is grateful to have 23 of those Artisan’s wares in our shop” states Trish Keating, owner of JuliaClaire Repeat Boutique in Preston. “We have Textile artists, Photographers, Metal, Wood and Glass artists as well as Jewelers and Authors who allow us to carry their works.”

“It never ceases to amaze me with all the beautiful things the Artisans create from used items,” says Jo Fitzgerald, a volunteer at JuliaClaire. “We are lucky to have such a variety of things to choose from.”

JuliaClaire also has artisans who create art from new materials. Jan Knutson’s flowers and scarves have become well known in the area as has Andy Walsh’s clocks, jewelry and music boxes as well as his beautiful holiday ornaments. Laurice Kneestern’s quilted table runners and wall hangings as well as her quilted chickens are very popular with local shoppers.

Young artisans also sell their wares at JuliaClaire. Madison and Meileigh Scheevel of Preston create bracelets and necklaces. “I encourage artisans of all ages to use their creativity. Our youngest is 9 years of age and our oldest is in her eighties,” says Keating.

Many of JuliaClaire’s artisans will be present at the event. Enjoy cider and cookies, meet our local artisans and view their wares from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Get a head start on your holiday shopping with 10 percent off all artisan wares and 20 percent off all regular holiday décor.
