The Tuesday Weavers had a booth at the Museum of Appalachia's Homecoming this past weekend. LaDonna and Ila were in charge of setting up the booth with help from Christy and Eiko. I think they did a wonderful job!!
We were assigned the inside of a cabin. The cabins here at the museum were homes that have been moved onto the site and decorated as they had been years ago. Our cabin actually had two rooms. The other room had a spinner demonstrating in it. Her room was the kitchen with a table and chairs, dishes, etc in it. Our room was the bedroom. I didn't take a picture of the fireplace but it was nice and big! This year we didn't need to have a fire in the morning. It was warm enough. I know that last year we did have a fire to break the chill of the morning.
So we set up using the furniture in the room as part of the props.
The show was 4 days long and each day we had 3 or 4 of our Tuesday Weavers there taking care of the booth. It was well worth the work and everyone met alot of nice people. Also, LouAnn demonstrates weaving in the loom house which is right next door to the cabin we were in. I'm surprised she could talk by the end of yesterday. She always had alot of people wondering how that machine worked. She's good at telling them all about it!
So, what else happened this weekend? We went to a wedding. It was on Friday over in Sparta, about 2 hours from Knoxville. We got there early. It was at a relative's property up on a bluff overlooking the valley. What a view, right?! A very peaceful, beautiful place to start a couple's life together.
Weddings are made of memories like this, the fun, crazy stuff that unexpectedly happens during all the planned things that turn out just right!!
So, until next week, keep weaving....Tuesday Weavers, we need more handtowels for the show in November.....and on it goes.
