The Danbury Museum is hosting its 11th annual Holiday Shoppe & Craft Fair and we are looking for local vendors. The Holiday Shoppe is held in our Huntington Hall, from Tuesday - Saturday, from November 24 through December 22, 2018.
The information letter and registration forms are downloadable below, and if you have further questions, don't hesitate to call us at 203.743.5200 for full details.
We were thrilled when the Washington Post visited our Cursive Camp in August and we look forward to continuing the important #CursiveConversation during the coming months.
If you missed the article--and great photos of our Cursive Campers--you can read HERE.
There was a tremendous response to our Cursive Camp from adults--some who had never been taught to write in cursive when they were in elementary school, and some who wished for a refresher course.
We were listening! Join us for an adult beverage and a lot of fun as we present Cocktails & Cursive. On Fridays, October 19th and November 16th, from 5-7 pm, we will host two evenings of reading and writing in cursive. Cathy Johnson who taught our campers will be teaching these evenings as well and there will be activities for both the beginner and more experienced writers among us.
Contact us at 203-743-5200--or use the PayPal link HERE to register. Each evening will have a different curriculum, so you'll want to just us for both. $20 per person, per night.
