THE NUTCRACKER LADY'S MAY NEWSLETTER FOR IS NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE!

YOU ARE INVITED MEET THE "NUTCRACKER MAN" JUNE 13, 2015 AT THE LEAVENWORTH NUTCRACKER MUSEUM

Glenn Crider of Virginia, known as the "Nutcracker Man" will be guest of honor at the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum to be held on June 13. Glenn was the creator of the nutcrackers used by the United States Post Office for the design of their nutcracker stamps in 2008. This original set now resides in the Smithsonian Museum. Here is a picture of Glenn taken at the Smithsonian.

Glenn was featured guest on Sunday Morning CBS with Charles Osgood on December 20, 2009. The producer, Judith Hole, interviewed him in his workshop, and showed many of his designs including those used for the nutcracker stamps. Glenn was also seen as he worked on his nutcrackers. Then Arlene Wagner, "The Nutcracker Lady" from the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum was interviewed with scenes from the museum. Below is the YouTube Video CBS News Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood

 

Although the Nutcracker Man and the Nutcracker Lady are internet friends, this will be the first time they have met face to face, and it will be exciting to have them appear together at this anniversary celebration.

John Bruce, of Bruce's Woodworks in Utah, is producing a 30 inch unpainted nutcracker which will be auctioned off to benefit the museum.

Other guests for this special day will be Mary Barthel who will give a slideshow presentation of nutcracker production in Germany, Michael McIvor, the designer of the museum books, who will discuss how the books are created and introduce the latest "An Addendum To The Art & Character Of Nutcrackers", and Tom Tutt, importer of nutcrackers by Steinbach and other German makers

A full program of events for this special day will be posted soon.
