Light House Rum CakesOk, Jill and I met Jon and Michele, the bakers at Lighthouse Rum Cakes, at the Newport Boat Show in 2014.  Jon convinced me to take a sample on the first day.  I immediately bought a couple for gifts, but by the end of the day, those somehow turned into empty boxes.  I bought more the next day.  By Sunday their booth was empty.  Such a nice couple with an amazingly delicious treat.  I highly recommend their rum cakes if you are looking for a new addiction.  They are located on the shoreline in Shelton, CT.  Stop by their site and check them out.

Vince Brennan:  I met Vince Brennan at the Wooden Boat Show at the Mystic Seaport, and he really relit a fire in my heart.  I was making white turkshead bracelets for a few customers in southern New England.  At his inspiration, this site and our craft show exhibits were formed.  I owe him a great debt of gratitude.  His skills at 'knot working' are exceptional and he has some nice tutorials.  Please visit his site and discover the wide variety of rope work skills he has. Loren Damewood is a true artist.  I had the chance to meet him at the International Guild of Knot Tyers meeting in New Bedford in 2009.  We pride ourselves in our traditional knotwork, but Loren has taken it to a whole new level.  By working in gold, silver, and platinum, every turn and bight he puts into his work has to be carefully planned.  An artist in the truest sense, Loren's work has been enjoyed throughout the US and he is a true lover of his craft.  His workmanship speaks volumes for this craftsman.
