Boundary Artisan Studio Tour

The BAA studio tour was today and yesterday. We had a steady flow of visitors from about 12:30 right to closing at 5pm. The best was a surprise visit from the Kalkamalka Weavers Guild from Vernon. They came down to see the Thread of our Heritage show of Doukhobor textiles, took in the studio tour and stopped at Joybilee Farm at the end of the day.

I showed and tell'd the new to us, PG Cottage Industry Carder. Wish we could have visited longer. Its always too short a visit when you get together with other spinners and weavers.

Total number of visitors: 33 over the two days -- 30 of them today.

Many of the visitors promised to come again.

Total studio visits for the whole tour: 285, which is up from last year's 200. Although sales were down overall. The economy is pinching the pennies in this community. But at least we gave people joy for the time they were at Joybilee Farm.
