Crafts at Smith Appleby House on Aug. 17

SMITHFIELD - The Smith-Appleby House, 220 Stillwater Road, will host a free arts and crafts event on Saturday, Aug. 17, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Participants will make a corn husk doll using a Penobscot Native American design.

The "Footsteps in History Quilt" will also be on display. The quilt was created when each of the 24 towns in the Blackstone Valley was asked to contribute a fabric square depicting their town.

Participants are invited to tour the house after the craft. Tickets are $5 for adults, free for children.
