My biggest event this year will be a first-time display (as a gourder) at the

International Folk Festival in Fayetteville

Sat/Sun September 24-25


Always big, always fun, always well-attended.


See you there...or somewhere! It's FESTIVAL SEASON!

Here's the only online info I could find for Spring Spree (again...it's a new festival)


Hopefully you will also be attending the 70th Annual NC Gourd Society Arts and Crafts Festival, September 10 & 11, 2011!

Not sure, Kate - but I have it marked on the calendar.


While I enjoy fellowship, I've long since discovered it's best to seek out venues where the art you present is unique to that around you.

Very good point for a vendor...but we have 67 competition categories and would love to see some of your work exhibited!
Great! I hope I can make it. I always enjoy seeing what others are creating! Especially when they bring their best to compete. That's what I appreciate most about GAE - all the photos...
