Handmade Stars

Fair Exhibitor

Growing up in Winston-Salem, I always enjoyed visiting Old Salem, an original Moravian Village. It was there that I was introduced to the Moravian Star. Loving the design and the true meaning behind the star, I took a class taught by a Moravian Minister and was soon able to make my own. Through the years I have customized the star into three different sizes, using many colors of paper. The Moravian Star design originated in the 1800’s but will always make a stunning addition to any home decor. Your purchases will help the non-profit work of the Fair.
