Arts & Crafts Weekend 2002

By Ingrid Helton

Visitors to SOHO's Arts & Crafts Weekend

What a weekend! March 8, 9, & 10 proved to be another successful weekend for SOHO and Arts & Crafts enthusiasts.

We brought to North Park over 20 fantastic exhibitors from all over the United States featuring furniture, textiles, books, home accessories, & lighting. One new exhibitor this year was Old California Lighting Company from Orange County along with our old favorites like Historic Lighting, American Bungalow Magazine, and Country Thyme to name a few. We kicked off the weekend with a fundraising Wine & Cheese Reception preview of the Exhibition & Sale with beautiful music by Caprice Strings.

Our Lectures and Workshops also grew in size. We were blessed to have Dr. Robert Winter on the premises, who lectured in the way only he can, on the topic of In the Land of the Bungalow. We were also pleased to have Stained Glass Artist, Brian McNally; Victoria Dailey, an authority on promotional photos and California ephemera; renowned author, Jane Powell who lectured on Bungalow Baths and led an in-home workshop on Bungalow Kitchens. We gave Erik Hanson, SOHO President, a chance to speak on the Arts & Crafts Movement in San Diego, and continued our tradition of having Paul Duchscherer, who spoke on topics from three of his books. Workshops were led by stenciling artist, Amy Miller; window repair by Dave Caldwell and Erik Hanson; historic landscape designer, Vonn Marie May led a walking garden workshop that began at the Marston house; and our perennial Mills Act workshop, with the County's Kathy Romero; City Staff, Barbara Hubbard; and designation expert and historian, Kathy Flannigan.

Sunday's Home Tour showcased six beautiful homes from North Park, Burlingame, South Park and Golden Hill, each with its own unique touch. It was great to be able to see and enter homes of all sizes and styles within the Arts & Crafts Period. All the homeowners have been sensitive to the period with their own unique and special touches. It was very evident that each of the owners has a great love for the period, for old homes, for history and for preserving San Diego's Heritage.

The entire weekend ran smoothly thanks to the 130 volunteers and committee members who donated their time and talents. This is one of SOHO's largest fundraising events and we are happy for all who participated in it and made it a weekend to remember.
