I am a long-time gourd artist and have been a gourd teacher for 11 years. I have recently moved to Pocatello Idaho and am already selling
my gourds through the Portneuf Farmer's Market every Saturday. I love it, people are seeing gourds for the first time, or seeing what they can do with the gourds they have had for a long time, or showing interest in classes. I look forward to moving into our home in the near future and unpacking. Once I am organized I will organize some classes. I have met some great people here and look forward to introducing gourd art to some new students. One of my favorite things is going to the county fairs. Since I have been teaching gourd art, I scan the homemade arts and am always thrilled to see gourds with my former student's names by their entries. Hopefully, I can have this same pleasure here at the Bannock County Fair one day.

Hi Teri, Glad to see you are still involved in gourding. One of the first gourd classes I took in 2003 was with you at Tandy Leather. I am now obsessed or maybe possessed! I've been making dolls, masks, jewelry and boxes. I still take classes from Diane Calderwood at Piecemakers in Costa Mesa. Anxiously waiting to see photos of your recent work. Norma
