Great Lakes Folk Festival August 11 & 12, 2012

I enjoyed being part of the GLFF marketplace in East Lansing, sponsored by the Michigan State University Museum. Although we got off to a rainy start (during a summer drought?) it was a fantastic weekend of hearing wonderful music, seeing fun folks and selling repurposed art. Thanks to everyone who kindly supported Retread Art!

I Love Yarn Day is October 12th!
