Driftless Area Art Festival

My booth

The best coffee in the world, locally roasted and boy did I need it Sat morning
some of my favorite artists including Ken and Michelle Workowski’s booth” The Nature of Things”

Linda Kennedy “Elk Run Handwovens and Joyce Krueger of Sunset Hill Studio/ both part of our weavers group.

The art fair puts on a great spread for the artists, Saturday after the fair.

This past weekend was such a lovely weekend, for the Driftless Area Art Festival.  Beautiful weather, good music and lots of great food, and being so close to home, lots of familiar faces.  And darn it all it just makes me want to do it again next year, although with a different plan; where I am not weaving like a crazy person all summer.
This week I have been returning to my domestic goddess status; dare I say good wife (hate, hate, hate that word!), where once again I am cooking actual meals, cleaning the bloody floor and letting friends gift me with boxes of tomatoes, since our garden once again failed to produce actual produce.
Wait…I think that I hear my empty looms calling my name….

    Goodness me, is that your warping board? If it is, I've never seen one so big and sturdy. I'm envious.

    Wow! Your booth looked simply beautiful! As usual your photos are stunning. Wish I had been there.

    Thanks, the scarf display is something my husband made to display yarn at fiber shows but every weaver thinks it is a warping board, funny where are minds tend to go.

    Indeed! I suspect it could be used as a warping board, though.

    Thanks for the photos – I didn't get there this year so I'm having a good look now. Handsome booth for Kindred Threads!

    Angie, thank you so much for posting the photos. At least I get to see a portion of the Festival. Not that I didn't enjoy it, but next year I hope to have some help so I can walk around a bit.
