Broom Making

Lovely weekend event

It was a wonderful weekend at the Hickory, PA Apple Festival. It started with a bit of drizzle on Saturday morning but quickly cleared and proved to by a great day for the crowd.


Join me at the Hickory PA Apple Festival

I'll be demonstrating broom making and wheat weaving at the Hickory Apple Festival on Saturday, October 6, 2007. Normally I'd be there for two days (Sat & Sun) but my son turns 6 on Oct 8 and we're having a party with a bunch of his friends on Sunday the 7th and that's not something I'm willing to miss.

In 2008 I'll be able to do both days again as the first full weekend in October falls earlier and won't interfere with that bit of family fun. (-:

Upcoming venues for my baskets, brooms and wheat

Just a quick entry to note that I'll be at Idlewild's Old Fashioned Days in July - the 26-28th. Old Fasioned Days runs from Monday, July 23 but as this is my "hobby" I'm not able to be there the full week. I'll be demonstrating broom making and basketry there with items for sale. Read More...

Some great videos finding their way onto the net

I belong to a very nice email group of broom makers. They're a wonderful resource for things historical, tips on making a broom, where to get supplies. In addition, they have become a great source for pointing out some really cool videos that are making their way onto YouTube featuring broom makers. I need to track the videos down and then I'll be sure to put some links here to the best ones I've watched so far.
