     In the summer of 2008, we were invited to come to the celebration at Leavenworth, IN known as the River Festival.  The event hosted a large number of artisans and craftsmen of all types of disciplines, among them being a paper making booth, a blacksmith, an angora rabbit fur spinning and of course lace making.  This event led to some great exposure in the Louisville, KY newspaper, which in turn led to a spot on Fox41 news.
