Countdown to the Ky. Guild’s Fall Art Fair

Hand-beaded Necklace

 The leaves are starting to change and the early morning air has a cool refreshing feel to it. All the signs say fall has arrived and with it the Kentucky Guild of Art & Craftsmen’s Fall Fair. This has always been one of my favorite Art shows and I think many artist & craftsmen feel the same way. The show is located just outside Berea , Ky.  in a beautiful setting at the foot of the Allegheny Mountains.  You start the journey from the parking lot and wonder through the forest on paths lined with booths.  Be prepare to see world-class arts and crafts, as the  members are composed of the best that Kentucky has to offer. My wife Jeane is a long time member and will be doing the show again with her jewelry. You can see more of Jeane’s Jewelry by visiting the show Sat. & Sun Oct. 9-10 from 10am till 5pm or by checking out her website at  

Crystalline cabachon with hand Beading

  Yesterday was spent helping long time friend and craftsmen Randy Bates repair a show canapy. The frame had some pieces that had to be repaired due to an accident. We stole parts off of an old canapy of mine and pieced together what looks like a new one. This turned out to be a lot of work for a $5 lunch, which was my payment for helping. I think he is squared away and ready for the Guild show. Randy is a Pen Turner from Danville, Ky….. You can check out more of his pens at PensbyRandy
