NW Folklife Festival

I'm home from Tulsa just in time to catch the last day of the Northwest Folklife Festival. It is an independent year-round nonprofit organization dedicated to creating opportunities for all people to appreciate, share, and participate in the evolving folk and ethnic traditions of the Pacific Northwest. Every year since 1972 they have presented the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle Center on Memorial Day Weekend.

The Pacific Northwest is home to an extraordinary group of communities—ethnic, familial, occupational, religious, and regional—the organization believes it is important to celebrate and help sustain the traditions of all of those groups. Doing so revitalizes people and communities and helps preserve cultural heritage for years to come.

The Northwest Folklife Festival is just one way Folklife brings this celebration of diversity and tradition to the heart of Seattle.

of course I'm attracted to the fiber.
Loved the quilted guitar!

Wow oh wow I found a new use for doilies!!!
