NCPC Fundraiser Party in Seagrove

To see more images of the Wednesday night fundraiser for the NC Pottery Center that we had in Seagrove, go to Jennie's JLK Jewelry blog.

Jennie sent me this picture she took of me with David and Nancy. David is a potter and neighbor, and Nancy is the director of Central Park NC. I am wearing a wonderful hand made skirt, top, and scarf that I acquired last year at the Carolina Designer Craftsman Show. Jen Swearington from Asheville made it. Meredith reported that we raised $1500 dollars for the North Carolina Pottery Center Wednesday night during the Craft in America viewing at Jennie's, but Meredith of Whynot Pottery will give a final amount when she gets back from the Crozet Art Fair.

The 1/2 hour before the PBS Craft in America special began there was a re-showing of the interview with Nancy and the STARworks staff, as well as, Kenneth from Comfort South and Eddie from WetDog Glass. Back to back with the Central Park Program was an interview with Vernon, Pam and Travis Owens of Jugtown Pottery. The STARworks blog provides you with two different links to see the video that UNC TV did on Central Park NC.

ON ANOTHER NOTE: Central Park NC is having their annual open house on October 29 at Starworks in Star, NC. This event is open to the public, but an RSVP is needed. The keynote speaker is Michael Schuman, there will also be a workshop on Saturday. To find all of the details for signing up for the workshop and the meeting, go to their website here. Last years open house was a lot of fun. The STARWorks Glass folk gave demos, informational presentations were given, good food, and there was a jazz band. Lots of happy people to talk too. Come out to hear about what Central Park NC is all about!!
