grandchildren demo......for Country Rover TV Program
Here is Mr. Jim Kent, demonstrating for TV! Miss Jimmie Kent wrote about this photo:

"We were called by some elected officials to help promote Onslow Tourisum. So we set up a small display of our baskets, and Jim and the kids who were visiting did a demo. There were several stations here and the COUNTRY ROVER, Alan Coventry. They were very impressed that all of our kids and their children weave baskets and help in some way in our studio. The children helping Jim during the interview were Abbey & Tyler Kent (brother & sister) and Jeremy Kent, their cousin. They were so excited about being on TV with 'Pa' - it was alot of fun. The reporter will come back and do a more detailed program later on."

Anyone see them on TV?

Some lucky NCBA members were able to escape the mid-June jungle temperatures of North Carolina by heading to the beautiful hills of Kentucky to attend the

9th Annual Bluegrass Area Basketmakers' Seminar.

Accommodations at the Kentucky Leadership Center in Jabez were excellent, and absolutely no one went hungry. It was fun, relaxing, and, according to the weavers, just the right size.

this event off: Nancy Lake, Carolyn Poe, Betty Overly Mary Willis, and
Mable Benge.

The more you bead, the blinder but happier you get.  Just ask Bonnie Kuhr, Mary Wiss and Wanda Borelli, along with their instructor, Brenda Traffis.
