PEEKSKILL, NY -- Four of the businesses located in the city's Hat Factory complex will be taking part in this year's American Craft Week.
American Craft Week is a national celebration bringing together individuals, small businesses and organizations from all 50 states in recognition of the countless ways handmade objects enrich our daily lives and contribute to our national aesthetic and economy.
With a movement toward artisan and "green products," low rents, available workforce and close proximity to New York City, Peekskill and other Hudson Valley towns are taking advantage of the emerging craft market.
The event will begin on Oct. 15 and will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. all week.
This year's participating businesses:
SM Frank Co.
The second largest manufacturer of smoking pipes in the USA.
Hudson Cabinetry and Design
Fine cabinet and furniture design and construction.
The Peekskill Clay Studios
Ceramic art Center.
Fine art services / fine furniture design.
