Plymouth Historical Museum Gearing Up for Annual Craft Bazaar

The museum is now accepting applications for its annual juried Craft Bazaar, which will be held Dec. 7.
Looking for unique holiday presents for family and friends? How about hand-made crafts?

The Plymouth Historical Museum will host its 8th Annual Juried Craft Bazaar on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Applications are now being accepted. Applicants need to submit three to four photos of craft items for judges to determine participants as there is a limit of crafters to five per category. Table rentals are $30 each, and most are 8 feet wide, although there are some space variations available. Space is tight, so venders will need to limit their display area to the size of the table or an equivalent space.

Linda Trewin of Livonia has been participating in the bazaar as a crafter for all eight years.

“I do it for the museum,” she said.

Trewin’s table will consist of knitted scarves, dish cloths and necklaces, beaded bracelets and a variety of custom earrings.

“It’s at a good time – it’s the beginning of December,” she said. “I got into crafts when I was going to college and working more than 40 hours a week because I couldn’t come down at night. I’ve been knitting and crocheting for 10 to 12 years. I’m not an expert at it like some of my friends are that can make baby clothes. But I can knit necklaces and dish cloths. They really like the cotton dish cloths that I make because they’re so versatile.”

The Museum is offering free admission that day for both Museum patrons and Craft Bazaar shoppers.

Ration Stamps & Bombers – WWII at Home Exhibit at the Plymouth Historical Museum

January 18 – June 17, 2012

The new exhibit at the Plymouth Historical Museum, “Ration Stamps & Bombers: WWII at Home,”  showcases how the lives of people in Plymouth and the Detroit area were affected by World War II. The enlightening exhibit features a collection of stories and items that pertain to several Plymouth residents who offered their services during the war, and details the contributions and sacrifices that they made for Plymouth and the country. The exhibit highlights items from the Museum’s World War II collection, and presents unique items that are on loan from other institutions, including items from the Michigan Military Museum and the Yankee Air Museum.

One item on display is a Norden bombsight on loan to the Museum from Burroughs. The bombsights were mechanical computers that calibrated the speed and altitude of the airplane bombers to ensure that the bombardiers more accurately hit their targets. The bombsites were manufactured by the Burroughs Corporation at its facility in Plymouth. The displays of ration stamps, uniforms, and war bond posters offer a historical view of how the community of Plymouth rallied to support the war effort. The exhibit will be on display at the Museum through Sunday, June 17, 2012. Admission is still only $5 for adults, $2 for children, and free for members. Hours are Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 1-4 p.m.

Plymouth Ice Festival Organizer Hopes for Wintry Weather

With the Plymouth Ice Festival one week away, organizer Sam Walton says he has been losing sleep.

The restlessness doesn’t come from the organizational or fundraising standpoint for the famed winter festival, however. Walton says the unseasonably mild temperatures this winter haven’t been ideal for a weekend-long event that features ice with a variety of shapes, sizes and functions.

“Weather is obviously one of the biggest variables that we’ve had to deal with,” Walton said.

Rather than the rain and warm temperatures of late, Walton says he is hoping for at least a dusting of snow and cold air.

There certainly is a lot at stake: The event typically draws about 100,000 people annually and is the largest free ice exhibit in the United States. The event already is stocked with a variety of local and corporate sponsors and the downtown community often relies on the extra foot traffic to boost its January traffic.

If the weather won’t cooperate, Walton said, there still will be plenty for visitors to do in Kellogg Park when the event opens Jan. 20, including a variety of interactive exhibits that won’t require such wintry conditions.

Among those, Walton said, is the McDonald’s Winter Fun Zone with outdoor sports exhibits, coordinated with Sun & Snow. The three-day festival also will include appearances from stars of upcoming shows including Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam and Super Grover from Sesame Street Live, who will appear at the event’s Jan. 20 opening ceremonies.

Technologically inclined visitors might enjoy the festival’s mobile video game system, which allows users to sit on ice while playing the latest software offerings. The event also will feature live music from the Shawn Riley Band and more food options than previous years, Walton said.

In his third year of promoting the event, Walton says he always is looking at ways to keep the 30-year-old festival fresh — and immune to woeful weather.

“(Just looking at ice sculptures) is like a museum to me,” Walton said. “I’d rather shake it up and have people feel and touch and taste and do.”

Still, he isn’t overlooking the event’s frozen roots and the striking sculptures that are curved during the duration of the festival.

The event was founded in 1983 by Scott Lorenz and later run by Michael Watts for 19 years.

“(Watts) did some amazing work over the years growing it into this world-class event,” Walton said. “He was very focused on ice sculptures and blew people’s minds with the amount of art and talent he could bring to Plymouth every year.”

Walton, who took over in 2010, is just the third promoter in the festival’s long history, and he says he hopes to help keep it running at least another 30 years with the support of local businesses.

“I’m happy I was able to be involved with the event during this 30th year,” he said. “Twenty-seven years before (2010), I was a lucky guy that got to come down as a spectator.”
