Sept 13- Living History Days, MO: Sandra B and I spent the day under the Oak trees, we had a great time and demonstrated tatting and bobbin lace. Several people stopped to watch or ask about our lace making and several asked about Lise. The event also had a spinner, a weaver, basket making, wood worker, soap maker, honey products, a cannon accompanied by the soldiers to fire it, several others demonstrated life in the 1800's. Music and food were available all day.
Oct 11- Renaissance Faire, KY: Sandra B., Sara and I enjoyed the Faire Hosted by Grace, tatting is the lace most people remember seeing grandmother working on. Bobbin Lace is the lace most seem to believe they would not have the patience to learn.
Oct 17- 19- Encampment, IL: Sandra B again joined me at Ft Massac this weekend. Friday the 17th was student day, starting at 9am and going until approx 2:30 pm buses brought in a steady stream of students. 30 schools had signed up participate with several classes per school. The estimated 1700 students were well behaved and a joy to share our love of lace making with. We had approx 10 min per class to introduce the students to 17th century lace making. A LARGE pricking (peg board) was used to demo the basic double stitch. Sat and Sunday the park was opened to the public we had a great location and a steady stream of people willing to stop and watch us lace. Event management was pleased with us and I feel we will be asked to Demonstrated again next year. THE OFFICAL TOTAL: OVER 165,000.
