While the West Coast Eisteddfod lovespoon wends its way through the labyrinthine complications of US/Canada cross-border customs, Laura is taking a well deserved break from carving to man her booth at the North American Festival of Wales. This year's event is in Scranton Pa., and it sounds like it's quite the bash. If you are planning on attending, or you are in the Scranton area this weekend, please drop by Laura's booth and purchase one of her beautiful lovespoons or greeting cards!! If you are too late for a lovespoon, (I hear they are going very quickly) check out her equally beautiful hand-turned pens. There's no end to Laura's woodworking and artistic skills, so take advantage of this excellent opportunity both to meet her AND to own some of her elegant work!
If can't visit the event, please visit Laura's website at www.jenkinslovespoons.com and check out her gorgeous collection of lovespoons!
Laura and I are both very excited about this year's Eisteddfod spoon and hope that you will help us with our fund-raising effort as we raffle the spoon off to a lucky recipient at this year's West Coast Eisteddfod.
Every dollar you donate to our cause equals a chance to win what must surely be our best spoon yet! Laura has thrown down a mighty gauntlet for me this year and I am very keen to see our spoon sprung from its custom's purgatory so that I can 'resume the action'!! Again, if you are at NAFOW, drop by the Americymru booth and have a look at the photos of the spoon and its progress from plank to perfect!
If you can't donate in person, please click on the box to the right of the photo for full information on this simple and safe way to support the West Coast Eisteddfod!!
