We are presenting the 5th annual Spin-A-Yarn Storytelling Festival on Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 11:00 AM -3:00 PM. We are very excited to present storytelling from several talented Kentuckiana residents, including Dawne Gee of WAVE 3 News. This family-friendly festival will also include bluegrass music from The Shuttle Winders, weaving and spinning demonstrations, a blacksmith, and historic cabin tours.
General Admission is $2.00 per person. Seniors 65 and older will be admitted for $1.00, and children six and under are free. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. All proceeds benefit The Little Loomhouse. There will be free parking behind DeSales High School at 425 West Kenwood Drive and free TARC Trolley transportation between DeSales and The Little Loomhouse. Please be advised that the Little Loomhouse is in a rustic setting on a steep hill. Access to the storytelling area is via a sloped gravel pathway.
Home of the Happy Birthday Song and founded in 1939 by Master Weaver Lou Tate Bousman, The Little Loomhouse is one of the few organizations devoted to keeping the ancient art of handweaving and its history alive.
