Bill Babine Is Valley Artisan’s November Artisan Of The Month

On his Goffstown shop scroll saw and band saw, Bill Babine shapes cars, trucks, train cars, planes and pull-toys: gorillas, whales, caterpillars and rabbits, using ash wood and he then finishes the toys with brightly colored water-based products.  Other toys include red barn shaped totes loaded with 10-12 farm animals: cows goats, horses, pigs and sheep and green totes containing NE woodland creatures like fox, deer, bear, beaver, squirrels and otter. Any child would delight in this durable lasting toy.


Currently Bill is designing and cutting 3-D wooden puzzles of rainforest frogs, bears, wolves and interlocking piles of puppies. He has donated a Rainforest Frog Puzzle for the artisan raffle.  Bill also crafts Shaker inspired seed boxes, candle boxes and candle sconces..


Last summer, Bill, a retired schoolteacher, built mortise and tenon outdoor furniture inspired by Japanese gardens and inspired by Shaker traditions. He is also teaching himself to turn wood on a small wood lathe, and he hopes soon to have simple wooden Christmas ornaments in the Valley Artisans Shop.


Valley Artisans has 3 rooms of locally made craft items for your shopping needs and many special gifts for the holidays. Come enjoy the warmth of the wood stoves and mulled cider.


We will open 7 days a week from 10AM to 6PM until Christmas Day.





To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield, Thank you all for your support! It’s always a pleasure to meet so many of you at the polls, and I’m humbled by your votes. It will be an honor to continue to represent you in Concord. Thank you also for supporting my colleagues, Michael Brewster and John Klose, our senator John Reagan, and our new governor, Chris Sununu. Without the fear of a veto, we can pass common sense legislation such as ensuring only bona fide residents vote in our elections and that parents and local school boards can decide where children should be schooled, rather than the bureacracy in Concord.


I am working on my bills for next year, and if you have an issue or concern that legislation can help, please call me this month. New bills can only be filed until December 2, and that doesn’t leave a lot of time to research for a bill.


Representative Carol McGuire
