My situation may be true of a lot of folks, so the organizers of the market are holding the special event this week and inviting one and all who have something to share (show and tell/sell) to come and do just that. And, the rest of the people, residents and visitors alike, are invited to partake.
One of my favorite memories of my trip to New Zealand and Australia is visiting a local arts and crafts fair there. Some of my favorite purchases from the trip also came from that fair.
As a spinner, I produce much more yarn than I can possibly knit. A weaver consumes far more yarn than a knitter, but I have learned that I’m just not a weaver. So, for me, this market gives me a chance to divest myself of a lot of handspun yarn that has not already been consigned to one project or another.
And, I assume the same may be true of other people out there in the local arts and crafts world. So, on behalf of the Canyonlands Fiber Arts Guild (and others who will have their wares at the market), I extend an invitation to all to come and join us. Swanny City Park, Thursday, July 10, from 5 to 8 p.m.
Computer problems again this week at the T-I. It brings to mind things we were admonished years ago when we switched from hot type to cold type (linotype to computer): If something CAN go wrong, it WILL go wrong. Where computers are concerned, it’s not a question of IF they will conk out but WHEN they will conk out. We are thankful for our friends, the computer geeks.
