This Manchester show is Designing Women’s only outside show this season, and is shaping up to be a fantastic family event. Featuring over twenty local female artisans and craftwomen, chair massages, a stationary smoothie bike, and Winthrop’s own children’s author Lynn Plourde will also be on hand with Apple Valley Books to autograph and sell copies of her new book, “You’re Wearing THAT To School?!” In addition to Longfellow’s wonderful end-of-the-season specials, lady artisans and craftswomen will display their high quality and beautifully handcrafted pottery, handbags, jewelry, glasswork, handwoven clothing and accessories, home accents, stained glass, natural beauty and body care products, and sculptural ceramic art. The suggested $2.00 door donation and all lunch/refreshment proceeds will be donated directly to Winthrop’s Sexual Assault Crisis and Support Center.
