When Wayne Parker and his wife Julia found Whispering Willow Soap Co. in 2010, they sought to instill their values in every apothecary product, offering the total package for like-minded focus. With three core principles as their driving force, the Parkers are making waves in personal care. Each product they sell is Sustainable, Natural and Beautiful, using organic ingredients and recyclable packing whenever possible; avoiding scents, colors, synthetic preservatives or other artificial additives; and making sure their products look as great as they work.

From these guiding principles, Whispering Willow now offers a variety of quality personal care products, including bar and liquid soaps, candles, shampoos, moisturizers and lip balms. All of them are crafted with the utmost care, with Wayne and Julia never making or selling a product they wouldn’t use themselves. In addition, they work to improve the world at large by donating 10% of all profits to charity. Traveling to the Mid-Atlantic from North Carolina, the Whispering Willow booth is a must-stop for anyone at a Sugarloaf craft show.

Hometown: Norwalk, CT

Stelios Paraskevas, a Norwalk, Connecticut-based artist, is known throughout the area and beyond for winding, weaving, braiding and crocheting copper wire into one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Born in Cyprus, Paraskevas developed a loved for working with copper thanks to the abundance of the metal available in his country. “Copper is a wonderful material to work with. It’s soft and easy to bend in shapes, yet when plated, it gets hard. Electroplating provides a multitude of colors, ranging from copper to bronze to gold to silver and many other striking hues. Plating also prevents the materials from tarnishing or changing color over time.” Paraskevas creates exquisite ear, neck, wrist and waist adornments.

Often working seven days a week, all of his jewelry is handmade from ordinary wire of various gauges in circular or flattened form using simple tools such as rollers, hammers, pliers, tweezers and a soldering iron. “I love my work. I love working with my hands and my mind,” he says. “I love to make new designs with copper — compared with other metals it’s more satisfying and not expensive. That helps to keep my work enjoyable and my products more affordable.” Stelios’ design philosophy is to keep it simple. “I’m using a pure, warm, natural metal for simple designs that complement and enhance those who wear them. Besides, simplicity sells.” He and his wife, Carol, run the Norwalk, Connecticut-based business called Stelios, Inc.

With nearly 50 years of experience under his shutter, photographer Sam Pathi brings to the Sugarloaf Family a wealth of creative knowledge, natural artistic ability and plenty of amazing stories. Incredibly, these days you’ll find him capturing images the “old school way” with a large format 4x5 camera.

He may be based out of Baltimore, but the Sam Pathi Photography gallery shows that Sam is anything but rooted. His images evoke the sense that we’re all on a route going somewhere, many of them featuring paths in the woods, charming European streets, stairways and rivers. Sam’s quest for capturing beautiful art has taken him all over the world frequenting national parks in the southwest US, plus England, Amsterdam, France, Spain and Italy.

Sam’s son, Eric, penned the following brief note on Sam’s website, highlighting just a few of the reasons we are happy to have him as part of the Sugarloaf family:

"My father is ‘old school’ still photographing with a 4x5 camera. He never ever thought of making his images available online. He's a people person and prefers to know each client personally."

Come get to know Sam at one of our festivals!

Thomas Phelps / Tom Phelps Studio

pottery & ceramics

Hometown: Floyd, VA

Working from his studio and retail space in Floyd, VA., Thomas Phelps surely crafts some of the most unique ceramic arts available at Sugarloaf. The artist’s signature googly-eyed clay monsters are a favorite among lovers of whimsical art, but his repertoire doesn’t stop there! Fanciful yet functional, Tom Phelps Studio designs are made to be used. He offers a slew of hand-sculpted ceramic spoon holders, mugs, vases and more that you can enjoy every day.

Take a peek through Phelps’ collection to see dozens of unique whimsical faces, no two exactly alike. Once Phelps sculpts the clay into these inimitable characters, he then glazes them with eye-catching colors and fires them for a high gloss. Phelps Pottery was started in 1990 by Thomas Phelps but is now run primarily by Tom’s son Seth. Stop by the Phelps’ booth at the next Sugarloaf Craft Festival to see and feel this truly unique crafter’s work up close.
