Candlelight Holiday Shopping Begins November 16th, 2012
I strolled into the Fisher Gallery at The Farmington Valley Arts Center, Avon, CT and staff and volunteers were unpacking and displaying all the new holiday artisan gifts which will be featured at the opening of Candlelight Season which begins next Friday night, November 16th, 2012 6-9 pm.

While there is so much to tell you, I wanted to share these gorgeous custom designed needlepoint pillows which you will find in the gallery along with many other textiles, usable and wearable art, jewelry, handmade toys, pottery and so much more.
