A great crowd enjoyed the festivities of the day. The SHCG would like to thank all the demonstrators who shared their time and talent, and for the visitors who showed their support of the Guild and its educational mission. Don't forget to join us for Heritage Weekend coming up September 19 and 20. It's never too early to sharpen up your whimmy diddle skills in preparation for the 29th Annual Gee Haw Whimmy Diddle Competition!
