Char The Basketmaker

Helen's Daughters, Char, had a creative career before handbag making.
She was an accomplished
willow basketmaker, author and workshop leader.
In 1988 - yes it was a long time ago - she was honored to receive
a Wisconsin Arts Board - Art Fellowship Award.
 Only five Wisconsin working artists were honor in 1988.

Beautiful Agora Art Fair in Fitchburg

Agora Art Fair.
 Blue skies, happy patrons, happy artists and a well run fair.
This little one day show is a family affair.
Grandmother and grandfathers to twins in carriages and a smatting of teens
ALL smiling.
The weather was PERFECT!
 There was wide variety artists/craftsmen and gigantic award ribbons!
You know you've won when Nikki, the show coordinators, hands you one.
None for Helen's Daughters this year.
The fiber award went to The Very Merry Holiday Fair's, Pat Kroth!
Congratulations Pat!
 I'm glad I have a break for a couple weeks.
Thanks Fitchburg for a wonderful show.
