Some of the traditional arts to be featured in demonstrations include basketmaking, snowshoe making, fly tying, Maine guiding, boat and canoe making, wood carving, quilting, tatting, weaving and knitting, and herbal arts. Visitors will be surprised at the ethnic diversity of Maine s people as manifested in these arts.
