Swan Bay Folk Art Center & Farm

in Port Republic, NJ


Nestled in the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey is Swan Bay Folk Art Center, a place where people can come to learn skills from days gone by in order to create pieces of their own history.  For 25 years, Niki Giberson and her husband Gary have run Swan Bay Folk Art Center out of their home, a sheep farm settled on land that has been in Gary's family since 1637.  

     

Welcome, friends!  Pour yourself a cup of tea and see what new and exciting things are going on

                                                                                                 at the farm, gas station, studio, and classrooms!

SWAN BAY IS PROUD TO THINK PINK IN OCTOBER!!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and we are offering a special Pink Wool Felt Ball Garland in our Etsy shop for the occasion.  All profits will go to support Amy's friend, Sarah, a 34 year old wife and mother, who is currently battling breast cancer.  Let's THINK PINK and send Sarah some wooly love (and get a beautiful garland to decorate your home!)  Click the photo to go our Etsy shop. 

In addition, a portion of the proceeds of every basket you weave at Swan Bay with PINK ACCENTS this month will also go to support Sarah.
