    A very informative article. Broom making is something I am interested in learning. However; I live in Maine and cannot find anyone or anywhere in New England to learn this craft. If anyone knows of a contact please respond. Thanks!

      Maybe you can meet a broom maker at the next Punkinfiddle Festival. According to the Wells Reserve website, artisans demonstrated traditional skills of many crafts including broom making (see http://www.wellsreserve.org/visit/calendar/404#inquiries). Sounds like so much fun! Perhaps you could try contacting Wells Reserve (207-646-1555) to see if they could put you in touch with the artisan broom maker that attended last year’s festival or share info with you about the 2013 festival.
