2017 Thermopolis Folk Festival

We had the pleasure of demonstrating our rug hooking again this year at the Folk Festival in Thermopolis WY.  It was so exciting to have so much interest in our craft. We have two women who are very interested in learning from last year. One has even bought her kit!

 These are a few items we showed. Sadly the picture of Carol's rug on the other side of the racks was too blurry. It was the Covered Bridge she just finished.
 The footstools and a stuffed owl from Heavens to Betsy were VERY popular. One man was so disappointed that the short footstool wasn't for sale. He said it was the first thing his wife has liked in 20 years.
One gentleman really wanted to buy Patty's camper rug. He pulled up his sleeves and he was covered in camper tattoos! I must say I had never seen camper tattoos before but they were pretty cute.

The vendors were wonderful and we went home with a lot more goodies than we had when we showed up. I even had a Navajo taco which was wonderful even though I felt the effects from my celiac. It was worth it!

We met so many wonderful people and saw several old friends. It was the perfect day with the perfect friends. Sadly Carol wasn't feeling well so she couldn't make it.
