Harvest Fair 2014

October 4th, 2014, could not have been a prettier day in Southern California, and at Piecemakers in particular. Artisans had set up booths with their beautiful hand crafted and vintage goods, the skies were blue and the weather warm. Several of Piecemakers' talented teachers demonstrated techniques in quilt making, doll making, fascinator hats and much more.
