Gift Basketing Workshop December 5 & 6
The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard will hold its seventh annual Gift Basketing Workshop Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 until 4:00. Mill Gift Basket experts will be on hand to provide their skills in creating a memorable gift. Workshop participants–Basketeers--are encouraged to bring their own basket or box to the Mill and then select items from the Mill’s wide array of Pride of New York specialty foods. Basketeers may also bring along items from other local sources so as to personalize a regional basket that will remind someone of home. “We invite visitors to be creative in their basket ideas. Regional products from our local breweries or a special item from one of our museum shops plus some flavorful Fly Creek Cider Mill products will produce a gift that says a lot about all the flavors of the Cooperstown area,” says Bill Michaels, co-owner of the Mill.
During the workshop Basketeers can sample hot holiday wassail plus learn how to make it at home with delicious Fly Creek Cider Mill Cider. Wassailing Weekends continue through December 20th when the Mill closes for the season. The workshop cost is limited to only the items purchased and registration is not required.

Customer complaint about shopping at the Mill:
My "complaint" is that, after shopping at your store yesterday, I now have 99% of my Christmas shopping finished! I really want to express my compliments and gratitude for the basket making day. Thanks again for this opportunity to make Christmas shopping FUN, not a chore! Heidi Griffin, Schodack Landing, NY
