Project Sunapee showcases local artisans and local history at HHL

An arts and crafts exhibit and sale featuring Sunapee artisans will take place at the historic Harbor House Livery (a.k.a. Old Town Hall) on Main Street, Sunapee Harbor, on Sunday, October 7, noon to 3. Refreshments will be served.

The event will feature Sunapee artisans including Joyce Gale (Unique Ewe woolly mittens),  Marie Wiggins (all manner of fine and fancy needlework), Cherie DeAugustinis (funky, fanciful sculpture, mirrors, trays, and more), Ellie White (Pashmina jackets and felted hats) and Sharon Parsons (pottery), who will demonstrate basket weaving.

Visitors will be able to explore the history and current activity surrounding the Harbor House Livery, which is on the New Hampshire Register of Historic Places.

“This is also an opportunity to glimpse back to Sunapee 1890. Harbor House Livery Committee docents will be present to answer questions and share a video history,” says Donna Gazelle for Project Sunapee, the event sponsor.

On display will be the wooden model of the pedestrian covered bridge that will span the Sugar River from River Street to Main Street. The harbor area project is under construction.

The scale model of the covered bridge (shown here) was created by Brent Stocker of Stocker Woodworks, Sunapee.
