Letter: The Artisan Trail: a no-brainer

Creating an Artisan’s Trail of Virginia in Rappahannock County celebrates and introduces our artists, artisans and agri-artisans to tourists, all supported by our bed and breakfasts, restaurants and businesses in the surrounding arms of the Blue Ridge Mountains, year round.  I can’t think of a better way to bring us all together than through celebrating the creative impulse.

This calls to mind two of my favorite one liners:

It is a no brainer.

It is a win-win.

First, however, artists, agri-artisans and artisans, as well as businesses, need to become individual members of the Artisan Center of Virginia for what I feel is a nominal fee for the kind of support you will be receiving through their web-casting efforts to promote what is good and creative in Virginia.

Once we reach a count of 30 it is a go; planning for the trail can begin.

Pledged memberships are welcome. Membership forms are available at Coterie in Sperryville, which is open 10 to 6 p.m. every day except Tuesday. You can also email raparttrail@gmail.com for a form.

I’m in.
