** Posted here because of yet another annoying Facebook moment... I was set to post the following directly on the Mountainair Online page there but for this message, "Are you sure you want to post this? You could be blocked for posting spam." Could this a devious plot to discourage posting directly to FB while encouraging more blogging on a competitor's platform? Seems backwards... Tales of Facebook's Bizarro World.
No link embellishment because not included on original source. Don't know about you, but I'd sure like to know more about the quilt exhibit (surely worth a post of its own), other Western artists exhibiting and demos. Names, details, links. Educating and informing the public is smart promotion.
