Fun, Funky Fashion in Downtown Laconia Friday

LACONIA — On Friday, September 13 artist Grace Napoleon of Connecticut-based Folk Couture is bringing her funky up-cycled clothing for a Trunk Show at The Studio, 50 Canal Street in downtown Laconia.

From 2 p.m. until 7 p.m., her hand-sewn creations will be on display and for sale to anyone desiring a unique garment that reflects Napoleon's extraordinary eye for combining the unexpected into the fantastic.

Folk Couture is a regular at the SoWa Vintage Market in Boston, which is where the owner of The Studio, Melissa McCarthy, met the artist.

"I was with a friend, and we enjoyed pulling out dress after dress, ooh-ing and aah-ing," she says. In conversation she learned that Folk Couture would be at the Squam Arts Workshop Arts Fair on Saturday the 14th. "Grace said we should talk about a Trunk Show the night before," explains McCarthy. "I thought it would be a great chance to bring something different into downtown, even if it's just for one night." While most of the garments are women's dresses in all sizes, Napoleon also makes one-of-a-kind appliqued shirts for men, again, "something different".

To see some of Grace Napoleon's work on-line, visit Folk Couture on Etsy or on Facebook. To see it at its best, in person, visit The Studio at 50 Canal Street on Friday September 13 from 2 to 7 p.m. Call 603-455-8008 with questions or for more information.

Union Church Launches $12,000 Campaign for repair, renovations

MEREDITH — The expert brush cutting and removal by Lissa and Rick Goodby, and Chuck Thorndike, revealed both good news and bad news for the Union Church of Meredith Neck Road.

The good news is that the church is again visible from the road after many years of being hidden. The bad news is that the church is in dire need of paint and repair to return it to the charming historic building it once was.

The Union Church Trustees have embarked upon a $12,000 campaign for renovations to the interior and exterior of the church. Donations can be made to the Union Church of Meredith Neck Road c/o Treasurer Bev Lapham, PO Box 1748, Meredith, NH 03253. Exterior work is planned for this fall while interior repairs and painting will be done in the spring of 2014.
