Show season is upon us and that means traveling hither, thither and yon. Thus far, we've done weekend shows in Kentucky-twice, Ohio and Indiana.
This weekend we'll be closer to home at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Western North Carolina.
I've gathered the flocks...
of both feather and wool,
and we'll be on the road, once more, on Friday.
A good thing about my woolen Hopalong Hollowfolk, is that they all fit snugly into ONE large bin.
And that's a good thing, since the entire van is stuffed with booth display, a tent, books and artwork and we haven't much room left.
Believe it or not, there IS a method to this madness. Everything is packed accordingly.
The van is completely filled up and we shall soon be on our way.
If you've never heard of the John C. Campbell Folk School, it is quite a wonderful place,
Here, you can learn:
TO WEAVE, Spin, or Shear sheep,
Carve Wood, Build a chair, stained glass, black-Smithing, print-block making, quilting,
cooking on a wood-fire, basketry, sewing a doll, bookmaking,leather-work, pottery, etc.etc. etc.

This is the weekend, Oct. 1-2nd, for the Fall Festival at J.C.C
We expect nice weather and hope some of you can come to the Fair!
