Did you enjoy the workshops we offered by the Washington State Gourd Society in 2014? We had fun pulling those together. This year we will be in Ellensburg, WA September 24th through the 27th, three and one half days of fun learning! The venue is still the fairgrounds, however we have rented the newly remodeled Annex, which has climate control, a large open space for classes, and three fully walled classrooms for power carving. Teacher invites are going out to our past teachers and new teachers as well. If you have someone you would like to learn from, send them our website address and ask them to apply.  If you are interested in teaching, please check our web bite for all the information.  www.wagourdsociety.org.  Classes are still being organized and won’t be posted until the end of June. 

 

Be sure to like us on our facebook page too. www.facebook.com/WashingtonStateGourdSociety .

 

Hope to see you there.  Gourd On!

My novel with a main character who is OBSSESSED WITH GOURDS has been accepted for publication and should be in print by this Fall!

To Everyone,

HI Everyone,

Our 3rd Washington State Gourd Festival is now being held in Ellensburg, a college town. Go check out their website and see all you can do in the area before or after the festival. If you're coming to the festival July 12-16, we will have camping spaces available . Go to our website www.wagourdsociety.org/NorthwestGourdFestival.htm for more info.

Hope to meet you there!

Comment by Leslie Hassett on April 7, 2012 at 5:17pm

I really want to register for the festival classes but there are no paypal buttons available.  How do I get my spots in the classes I want if there's no way to pay for them?  I can't pay by check at this time.  I've emailed Betsy but no response in the last 3 days... any ideas anyone?

I encourage EVERYONE to come to the 3rd annual gourd festival in Ellensburg! This is a great college town with so much going for it and just think..you can dig out those cowboy boots (definately cowboy country) and wear 'im in style!
