Great Day at Ozark Folkway

Today, my nephew and I spent the day demoing needle felting at Ozark Folkway.We had a beautiful day talking to people and eating yummy chicken-and-dumplings.This is Freda and as you can see she makes baskets.I love the big round one at the bottom of this pic.

This is my nephew,Patrick holding a needle felted piece he made.And to the left of him is some of the things I have made.


Here is the front of Ozark Folkways.It is this great old rock building with ivy growing all over it.They are trying to keep the old arts alive.Many local artist sell their work here.



This sweet lady is Connie.She is the heart of Ozark Folkways.She is standing at the new rug she is working on.





This is a piece that was in the art show they were having.It is a locker hooked rug made with roving.I loved this rug.I forgot to get the lady's name that hooked it.
We did not have a big crowd,but this was the first year for this and I know with Connie it will just get bigger and bigger.
Live Deeply,Vicki

I think you ought to get that big round basket for your wool strips! And I ought to get one of those little scissor goblins that you make!

Thanks so much for the publicity for Folkways and for your participation. I enjoyed talking to you and looking at your work. I posted a couple of photos and a link to your blog on ATCsforAll (the art card site). I enjoyed reading all of your blog. Added it to my bookmarks.

Erin, it was nice meeting my Sat.I wish I lived closer to folkways so I could do more with it.I think Connie and I will be working on a needle felting class for me to teach.

What a wonderful blog. I'm so glad you responded to the question on the Yahoo rughookers site. I wouldn't have wanted to miss this. The music couldn't be more perfect. If this is your husband's music it is really good. I love what looked like little pumpkin heads with mismatched button eyes. You have a great sense of fun and your blog makes me want to see more.
Great work in the pictures and with this whole blog.
cheers,
Deborah Groom
