YES! it's that time of year again! Fairie Festival Season is upon us!
We're packing up pots & our fairie finery and heading east over the mountains for one of my favorite festivals of the year- Spoutwood Farm's Fairie Festival is happening this coming weekend.
This is a magical show in a beautiful, bucolic spot that is annually invaded by all sorts of fairies, pixies, picties, orcs, mudsprites & all sorts of other magical beings. YOU need to put on your 'fairie best' and come out to play with us!
We'll have lots of pots fresh from the kiln, our two smallest dogs & Darrell in a kilt!

How can you miss this occasion?!
I didn't think so.
Here's the info:
Spoutwood Farms Fairie Festival
Spoutwood Farms, Glen Rock PA
May 2, 3 and 4 2008
Great good times, lots of happy kids & animals, awesome crafts & fairie abundance await! We hope to see all y'all there!

but, if you can't make it (simultaneously pouting & making come hither gestures) you could try to consul yourself by doing a bit of shopping at my Etsy shop: DancingPigPots@etsy.com

Hail & Welcome to Dancing Pig Pottery's blog.
Here's what's happening this week:

Our big, biG, BIG news is that Dancing Pig Pottery finally has an online outlet- that's right, after years of foot dragging & excuse making, we're finally selling our pots online, and so far it's been great. We've got a shop over on Etsy, which is an awesome handmade/crafts marketplace. As a seller, i love how easy everything is for me over there. I should have done this years ago!
Check our our Etsy store & don't forget to bookmark it & share it with all your friends!

and then, there's this: Despite a stunning lack of publicity, we are in fact going to be in Maryland, THIS WEEKEND, selling pots. That's right, it's our semi-annual appearance at
Art of Fire's Open House & Studio Tour
I love this "rite of spring"! It's my first show of the spring season & i get to show off all the cool stuff we've been working on over the winter break. We'll have lots of chocolate pots and there will be lots of Ceilidh pots (the ones that Jill/Bran & i have been collaborating on) as well. Plus, our newest puppy, Ursa Minor, (pictured in this post) will be making her social debut. Even if you don't need pots (and really, doesn't everyone NEED pots?- don't answer that!) you should at least stop by for a chat & a cuppa tea.
That's all happening
THIS WEEKEND Friday, Saturday & Sunday, April 11, 12 & 13
from 10 til 5 each day.

As an added bonus, our neighbor from Maryland Renaissance Festival, Allen the Printmaker, will be at the Art of Fire's Open House also. It'll be like a little mini Renn Fest Spring Preview!
