GFM :  SPOTLIGHT VENDOR OF THE WEEK


 
 

SPOTLIGHT VENDOR OF THE WEEK

 

CHRISTY DID

 

  

My shop name is Christy Did, a play on my name.  I love to do machine embroidery and sew as well as other crafts.

 

Blame it on my grandmothers!  One taught me to do crafts and the other to use the sewing machine.  I was hooked.

 

I grew up in Harrison, Ohio and spent a lot of each summer at my great-grandmother’s farm in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.   Got married and moved to Johnson City in 1973.  My husband is retired from the Johnson City Fire Department.  We have one adult son.

 

When I retired I was able to sew my days away, especially on my embroidery machine.  Not wanting to appear on Hoarders, I started doing craft fairs, markets, etc.  I opened a shop on Etsy, Christy Did, where I sell embroidered items, doll clothes and such.

 

I plan on being a more frequent vendor at GFM this 2018 season.  I had a blast the few times I made it last summer.  It is a great place to be on a Saturday morning with some great folks!

 

 Hope to see you this season.

You will also find the bid sheets for a grand assortment of exciting silent auction items. We will also have a Guatemalan Market where we will have Guatemalan fair trade items for sale. There will also be a wine pull at the end of the evening.

The event is January 28th. Tickets are available in advance in the church office.

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest for January 21st




Market News

Hello!

It will be good to see you this week!

It’s been a cold one, and our vegetable offerings are pretty basic this week. The current warm spell is lovely for the crops, and hopefully they will have some time to grow and bounce back in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, please support the veggies us farmers do have available to you! There is plenty of fresh, delicious goodness for keeping you well fed!
There is a great selection from our meat producers – lots of new items and remember if there is an item you’d like but don’t see, please let us know and we may be able to track it down for you!

We’ve got a special treat this week of a small, artisan batch of malt vinegar. This is made by the same master fermenter who brought us sauerkraut last season. You can read it’s full description on the market page. Give some a try!

*We are on an EVERY OTHER WEEK schedule! * So that means stock up as you can on meat, eggs, and our storage vegetables! Even the greens are so fresh and well taken care of they have a very long fridge life. So make sure you order enough for 2 weeks!

Our next delivery date after this Wednesday will be Wednesday, Feburary 7th

We are really excited for the year ahead, and hope to continue to serve you in the best way possible! We are always open to feedback and questions. It helps us to be better at what we do, so we appreciate you letting us know what you love or what some concerns may be!

Thanks for all your support – we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!
