Report from Carol T.:

Kentuck was great. We have a new location which initially displeased me as we are right by the children's playground, but is good because we have plenty of room and nice, level ground.  I asked on our survey that we get the same location next year. It was VERY dusty which was not great but not any surprise.  We got lots of interested folks, including a video by the Crimson White!  A man took a video of me making lace which he was sending to his sister in India!  We demonstrated tapestry weaving, card weaving and 8 shaft loom weaving.  Several spinners (including Kristen Snow who we were glad to see), tatted and bobbin lace, crochet lace, and knitting.  Big THANK you to all who participated, especially Monica who handled the sales table, and all who supported us in spirit!

Nan Glaus, Tori, and Deanna participated in the Northport Education Initiative on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday following Kentuck which was great. A real gift to the community as it was right after Kentuck!
