THURMAN - Crafts and skills from bygone days will be demonstrated at Heritage Days, to be held in conjunction with the weekly Thurman Station Farmers' Market. The event is free of charge.
From 12:30 to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 18, the pavilion at Thurman Station - on Route 418, four miles out of Warrensburg - will feature a weaver, a spinner, a quilter and a soapmaker, among other skilled artisans.
Many of the crafters will appear in period garb and may invite passersby to try their hands at these age-old activities. In addition to these and an assortment of vendors of crafts, vegetables and baked goods, expect a display of old tools and enjoy the live traditional tunes of Steph Svrchek and Don't Quit Your Day Job. All are welcome.
