Passing Time At The Carving Show

There are lots of reasons to participate/exhibit at a wood carving show and sale. Some do it so that they can enter their wood carvings into a judged competition. Others just to let other folks see what they are carving. Some even so they can sell their wood carvings. But I suspect that by far most do it just to see and talk to others who share their hobby. The last reason would be me. Just think of it; 40 to 50 wood carvers, each with a table of their carvings, together for 2 days. You may only see and talk to these carvers once a year. Or if you're lucky you'll see them at other shows. But one thing is for sure we don't forget one another. We're always friends. I like to stay busy, so the photo shows the results of my being "busy" while talking to others, at the Johnny Appleseed Wood Carving Show.

It's amazing you still have all your fingers! I can barely walk and chew gum at the same time. Carving and talking? Yikes!

Apple Blessings to all! I'm a Trustee for the Johnny Appleseed Foundation and I'd love to know more about the Johnny Appleseed Wood Carving Show. Could you provide some details of where it took place and who sponsored the event please? We're considering adding Wood Carving and Quilting to our Festival. Thanks.
