This past weekend I was at the Holiday Open House & Sale hosted by the Artists of the Mahoning Commons at the Ward Bakery Building in Youngstown, OH. That’s a mouthful, eh? Two different local news outlets came and wrote articles about us. The first was from a TV station. Their article was short, but they included a photo. I ended up in the picture! At least my underwear wasn’t sticking out the back of my pants.
The second article was written by a reporter from a newspaper, The Vindicator. It didn’t have any photos, but it was much longer. He talked to me for quite a while and he was very nice. I feel a bit sorry for him though, having to listen to me ramble on and on about drumcarding and sheep breeds and yarn. A few details in the article are a bit inaccurate, but when you are trying to write about something totally foreign in a small amount of time and you are piecing together my descriptions of how things work, I think you are allowed a bit of wiggle room. I don’t think I’ve ever been in the newspaper before, at least not for this sort of thing.
If you missed out on the show last weekend, you will have another opportunity to shop the weekend following Thanksgiving. The hours are 12 to 5 pm both days. Support Small Business Saturday!
