Outdoor Fun!

Recently, Alchemy Stones took the "show" outside, as we took part in the "Crafts by the Dock" event put on by the Port Townsend Arts Guild, as part of the annual Wood Boat Festival, here in our hometown of Port Townsend, WA.

We were fortunate to share a booth with our good friends from Raison Ethique, and blessed with the sunniest and warmest weekend in Port Townsend in 2014! At times, it was almost too warm, and we were grateful for the booth location near the waterfront where at least an occasional sea breeze would cool us slightly.

Participating in a show represented a bit of a departure from our normal way of doing things only through the Internet, so we went without a expectations ahead of time... and ended up pleasantly surprised.

It was lovely to meet quite a few of our supporters, as well a numerous new fans who got to see Alchemy Stones for the first time. The event was quite well attended, and we were quite happy with the final results.

We'd like to thank everyone who showed up, and we hope to see you again at future events!


Showtime! 2014 Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival

This weekend-- Saturday and Sunday, September 6th & 7th-- Alchemy Stones will be "on the road."

But we are not going very far. We will be sharing a booth with our friends from Raison Éthique at the "Crafts by the Dock" arts & crafts vendor's market that takes place during Port Townsend's annual Wooden Boat Festival.

The arts & crafts area is open from 10:00-6:00 on Saturday, and from 10:00-5:00 on Sunday. Booths are set up on Madison Street by City Hall... Madison is a side street off Water Street, which is Port Townsend's main waterfront avenue.

If you don't feel like fighting the traffic and doing battle for one of the hard-to-find Port Townsend parking spaces, there's a transit bus shuttle service (and free parking) from the Park-and-ride lot behind the Safeway grocery store.

If you live in the area, do stop by and see us! And if you're within driving distance, the Wooden Boat Festival is an interesting and colorful event that draws upwards of 30,000 visitors from the region and around the world... and it not "just about boats." There's food, arts & crafts, music and more!

The weather forecast calls for a bright and sunny weekend, so it's a great opportunity to visit historic Port Townsend.

We have lots of new pieces ready for the show-- many colorful designs; over 300 different to choose from!
