It is with sadness we share the passing of longtime weaver Florence Highfield…
We still need some volunteers to demo at the Canfield Fair. The demo will be in the Arts & Crafts building on Thursday Sept 1. You can pick up your free entry ticket from Marilyn when you drop off your Fair entries. She will be working the intake in that building on both days. Also, equipment can be dropped off early and stored in the building until demo day.
