One of main events at the biannual Craft Fair of Southern Highlands (beyond the one-of-a-kind pieces in glass, fiber, wood, paint, metal and more) is the chance to meet the crafts people and tap into their creative genius. More than 200 artisans and crafters show off their skills and talk about their inspirations at this month's fair. Demonstrations include natural dyeing, making sock monkeys, sunprinting and children's activities. Musical acts Cary Fridley and Down South, Blue-Eyed Girl, Hot Duck Soup and others will perform. Thursday-Sunday, July 19-22. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily (10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday), $8 for adults, free for children under age 12. http://www.craftguild.org.
