From the artist: I make purses and zipper bags of all sizes and shapes. I also make fabric coil bowls in a lot of sizes. I am a self-taught sewer and have been making bags for over 12 years. Some items I have made have gone to the wayside as they didn’t work but many styles I have keep and done changes to over the years to improve the bags. I am always on the lookout for new ideas and listen to ideas from my customers. I also do special orders if they fit with what I am doing. Yes, I have a fabric addiction so am putting my love of fabric to good use. Most of the fabric is 100% cotton which makes the items machine washable and dryable.

From the artist: I have lived in the Northwest all my life.  I find birds, trees, animals and the outdoors to be beautiful and inspiring. I print everything myself except the large canvas and note cards and I will do custom work of your beautiful images as well.


From the artist: I live on a ranch just outside the small town of Mt. Vernon, Oregon. I am a second generation soap maker and I love growing up with my mom's handmade soap. Now, following in her footsteps, I use the same basic recipe that has been tested with time! I have a large variety of soaps, some with wonderful essential oils and all natural ingredients for color. I also have a variety of fun soaps with yummy fragrance oils topped off with cosmetic glitter! All my soaps are skin-loving! 



About the artist: Wildlife Pyrography - The Art of Drawing with Fire. For centuries, gourds have been used to make vessels, utensils, jewelry and crafts. The artist, Michele O'Malley, uses the organic shapes, textures and patterns of each gourd as a canvas for her unique wildlife art. Each animal is hand-drawn, hand-burned and color may be added using ink dyes creating a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of Art.

From the brewers: Our family purchased an 1890s Eastlake Cottage-Style home (Klamath Falls, Oregon) that had been lovingly restored by the previous owners. Sitting at the kitchen table during a long winter morning drinking coffee, we longed for fresh roasted coffee. Over these morning conversations, we decided to renovate a small potting shed and purchase a roaster to share our love of fresh roasted coffee with others.


Come see us for fresh-brewed coffee - including our new Blitzen Valley Blend - at the festival Art Show & Sale!


From the artist: I have been making jewelry for almost 50 years. I love hand fabrication and also do lost wax casting. I use fine quality precious and semi-precious gems in my work. Iwork in sterling silver and karat gold. I also work in the mixed metal art form of mokume gane. I see patterns for my work in many aspects of nature. These patterns present themselves as details taken from various inspirations and reinterpreted in designs on jewelry pieces. I accent and enhance my work with faceted and cabachon cut gems using a variety of setting techniques. Jewelry is my art and passion! I am always a student learning more about my work. I love to see my work worn by people who share the joy of a wearable piece of art.  To that end, I create interesting handmade jewelry in price ranges from less than $20 for a pair of silver earrings to  fine one of a kind pieces that are my creative expression of the jewelry art and may cost thousands. I come to Burns for the birding and enjoy the art show. Please come by the booth and check out my work!


From the artist: I transfer my original fine art photographs onto Travertine stone tiles by hand to create coasters, trivets, spoon rests, and magnets. These are usable pieces of art. They're sealed against moisture so they'll take heat, cold, and wet. I've even had folks add these to their tile backsplashes. I'll have a wide variety of photos and sizes available in my booth. They make great gifts!

About the artist: Larry’s love of nature and the desire to explore, see new things and new behaviors was instilled as a young child. That desire is still strong and continues to grow even though age marches on. Larry’s enthusiasm carried over to his wife, Terrie, who now tags along as Larry’s partner taking pictures by his side. This desire translates into another passion, to make pleasing images that bring joy, inspiration, and hopefully let others see through our images part of our great natural world they might not otherwise see. Larry believes that Nature is at it’s Best when taking photographs of untamed, wild, un-baited critters. Most of our wildlife images are in their natural habitat (unless otherwise noted).  To find a subject in great light, to produce a pleasing image, to us is what photography is all about, but the truth is even without the camera in hand we would still be out there observing all the great things in nature.
