My family has been involved in the Somerset Historical Society’s Mountain Craft Days nearly as long as it has existed and it’s a tradition that I love. Growing up I was knicknamed the “Butter Girl” because I ran the Jr. Historian’s butter making booth for several years in high school. Although I had fun (and adore freshly churned butter), I’m pretty glad to have graduated to a much cleaner task- demonstrating quilting and telling the history of the Adam Miller home (an original Somerset County home dating back to at least 1798).
This was the first festival in several years with good weather and the crowds were amazing. There were some 6,000 people on Saturday alone!
All and all a great, if exhausting weekend. I hope I’ll have enough finger strength left tomorrow to type at work!
