It is great to see the building being opened up during the week for an event like this, showcasing the talents of local crafters & artists. On behalf of TTHA and the exhibitors, I’d like to thank the sponsors who have helped make this weeks event possible. Special thanks need to be given to Helen Dean and Rose Logan for all the hard work they have put in to bringing the event to fruition.
