What’s New at the Market: The gnomes are coming!

This weekend long-time vendor Whimsical Woods — the husband and wife team Val and Nancy Jackson — will be sponsoring “Gnome Day” at the Sequim Farmers Market. Grandpa gnome will be there, all dressed up, to tell his gnome stories.

That mischievous fellow, Grandpa gnome, will also hide six little gnome figures throughout the market in the vendor booths. Whoever spots the gnome figures first, will be able to take it home with you for your garden. Gnomes are very shy when they are around humans, but remember when humans are not around, magic happens … all in good fun!

Visit the Whimsical Woods booth and not only see gnomes and gnome homes, but lots of custom fairy furniture, fairy homes, and more. You never gnome!

Songs, sewing in spotlight

The Summer Live Music Series at the Sequim Farmers Market continues Saturday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. when local musician Jake Reichner, a regular at the market, takes the stage. Reichner is a singer-songwriter who performs several of his original tunes along with 1960s-1990s favorites. Humming to the tune, tapping of toes and singing along with the music is encouraged.

The Silverdale Chapter of the American Sewing Guild will join us at the market this weekend. The chapter members meet monthly. Meeting topics and activities can vary from garment fitting and construction to machine and hand embroidery, purse making and fiber arts. All skill levels are welcome to attend. Come ask them questions about sewing.

Many of Sequim Farmers Market artisans are skilled in the art of sewing and fiber arts as well: Vicki Swann with Canine Connected creates hand sewn dog collars and harnesses; Patricia Earnest with Whimzees designs quality knit wear; Libby Ballard with Bountiful Pleasures designs up-cycled skirts, T-shirts, quilts and more; Rene Ewbank with Fresh Hats creates beautifully constructed hats for men and women; Generations Boutique constructs hand sewn “ugly cup” covers, and Ellen Olga Lloyd with Olga’s Yurt of Fiber has a large selection of fiber, felt and yarn you have to see to believe.

A special thanks to Bell & Davis Law and BrokersGroup Real Estate for supporting the Sequim Farmers Market.
