Woodinville Farmers Market The Woodinville Farmers Market will end its third season with a Holiday Craft Show Oct. 26-27 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. With both outdoor and indoor booths, the two-day event will feature outstanding craftsmen, artists, farmers, and food vendors.
   One of the nine award-winning artists whose works will be featured is Russian-born, internationally-recognized ceramicist Galina Rein, whose vases are shown in galleries and museums from New York to San Francisco.
   Rein was specially honored in 1990 when the Russian National State Museum purchased several of her ceramic pieces even after she had already moved to the U.S. Earlier this year, Rein, who resides in Seward Park in Seattle, was the featured speaker at the International Conference on Beads in Washington D.C.
   Other artists in the show will include Eric Zann of Bothell, oil paintings; Pat Talbott of Woodinville, a toy and teddy bear artist; Tamara Jones of Mill Creek, jeweler; Gorden and Sandra Sinclair, clothing; Jo Schrepfer of Seattle, doll clothes; Karen Johnson of Woodinville, clothing; and Wilks Leather Products of Leavenworth, leather quilts.
   There will be handmade holiday craft items for sale along with farm produce and foods. Jazz guitarist Gregg Glassman and trio "Just Friends" will play on Saturday from 1-4 p.m. and will be accompanied by Michell Dedman on Sunday from 11-1 p.m.
   There will also be a pumpkin patch where children can pick one out to bring home, as well as a pumpkin carving contest. Already carved entries need to be at the market by noon Sunday and picked up by 4 p.m.
