Crafters are pleasant people.
They have to be, for in just a minute, they must share their love of what they do as a hobby and hope you will enjoy and purchase their work as well.
One meets crafters at fairs and markets. At Linden's recent block party during the day Saturday, almost a dozen crafters showed up to reserve tables and meet the public.
Several came for the first time. Some said they were nervous.
Here's a brief look at each of the 11 and a short description of the creative work they do. Perhaps you'll see them at the next market you attend. They're local and want to know you, too.
