Cheatfest 2011 has come and gone. And I already miss it.
It's a place of fun and community, a party that goes from the minute we arrive to set up until we pull out Sunday morning.
For all the vendors, it's a long and fantastic day on Saturday. (it's always the first Saturday in May.) From 12 noon until 11pm we enjoyed music and laughter and talking to people about the things we love best- our art and active outdoor fun! My favorite band was the last of the night, rocking from Pittsburgh- Rising Regina
Meanwhile, Adam and the kids, with a few friends, enjoyed camping, hiking, dancing, hooping, climbing and hanging out by the campfire.
I had some new things in my tent. Hand made trees for the earrings, much less likely to fall over or poke someone in the face. And I've hung my most complex pieces as art on the walls of the tent. These are simple memory boxes and worked beautifully to highlight the new skills I've worked on in Jewelry class.
I cannot think of any better way to celebrate and support the hard work to clean up the Cheat River!
Please support the Friends of the Cheat.
Thank you again, West Virginia!
