Indoor Living History Trade Shows

Kathleen in Cap and Grand Coiffe During the fall, winter and spring months, many of the historical artisans and merchants gather at indoor trade shows. This is an opportunity to visit with them, see their products up close and get the things you need for the summer season. It is also a time to get the supplies to use during the "slow" time so that you can make your own period clothing.

Kannik's Korner patterns are available from merchants at these shows, and we may be set up at some as well!

Some of the shows we know about, are listed below. For more information and confirmation of the show dates, times and admission price  please contact the sponsor directly.
