Northeast Bubbles & Blazes 2016 Gathering

Port Crane, NY, United States

Are you looking for information about handcrafted soaps, bath & body items and candles? Do you want to exchange ideas with a group of friendly crafters in New York and surrounding states and eastern Canada? The NE Bubbles and Blazes group is for you! We were originally called CNY Soapmakers and have existed since 2000. However, since our group has grown to include the entire Northeast USA and the eastern part of Canada, we changed our name so all feel welcome to be part of the group.

Our Facebook group, www.facebook.com/Groups/nybubblesandblazes is where soap and toiletry makers come together to learn more about their craft and to educate others about the joys and benefits of handcrafted bath and body products and candles. You are welcome to join us.

Each year, we plan an enjoyable gathering that includes demonstrations or seminars, swaps, buys, an ugly soap contest and even garage sales.
