The Dam Retreat with Lindly

We just had a wonderful almost a week up in Kentucky with the Kentucky/Tennessee Guild at the Rough River Dam State Park ‘Resort’.

The Holiday Season is upon us…..

As the year winds down and we gear up for holiday shopping, we are taking time to work on the collection, restock the shelves and rearrange the tool walls….one of many reasons we are glad that Randy is here! He does a great job of merchandizing the artists’ work and the gallery has never looked…
