Winterfaire Vendor: Dan Davis

Whirly-gigs, Audubon compliant birdhouses, and fabulous yard art come from Dan's woodworking shop in Grass Valley.  Dan uses scrap and repurposed lumber in his creations which give them a wonderful rustic quality.  Be sure to check out his booth at Winterfaire in October and bring home something special for your yard.

Pine Needle Baskets from Nature's Bounty

Craft guild members live side by side with beautiful Ponderosa Pines.  Many of us have them on our property or at least can gather their needles along roadsides or in parks.  Our members asked - who could give us a workshop on making pine needle baskets?  Well, it turns out,  Kate Grant (205-9027) and Bernadine Lefmann (264-7072) are just the people you want to call.  Watch the little slide show to see the start of some great baskets.



Kimberly attended the class and took a couple of videos with her cell phone.  Check them out here and here.  It looks like everyone had a fabulous time.
