Festival Update: October 4, 2006
This week I want to tell you a little about the artist’s colony we are having at the “Fall into Fun” festival to benefit the new Indian Land Library.
We have room for 26 artists and crafters to show and sell their wares at the festival. The booths will be scattered around a grassy area to the right of the Sun City Sales Center. There is a gentle, winding sidewalk there and booths will be placed on either side of that. We are looking forward to it being a pleasant place for festival goers to see some of the arts and crafts that are going on in our community. Currently we have about half of the spaces filled with woodworkers, bead crafts, painters and baskets. We’d love to see some quilters, potters, sculptors … we know there are some out there. Please contact the library or Stacey Vaughn to let us know you are interested in bringing your art to the festival.
I have been stopped on the street regularly by folks who want to volunteer at the festival. I have not, however, managed to keep any names! Please contact me via email at Indianlandlibrary@gmail.com or call me at 803.547.0332. I am going to be looking for people to help with a hand washing station and balloons in the children’s area and licensed drivers to drive golf carts and minivans for shuttling. We are also still hoping to have people willing to dress up in storybook character costumes to greet children in the children’s area.
