Life in a Small Town

I love living in a very special small town and have been doing so since 1970!  This week, Deerfield is bustling to get ready for our County Fair.  Every activity is focused on being ready for the crowds that the fair attracts.  Our roads will be packed with mile after mile of cars…while thousands and thousands of folks visit town during the four days of the fair.  Those of us who live in Deerfield travel on all the back roads and know that any planned activities in town are ‘after the fair’!    Life changes for residents while Deerfield opens it doors, its highways and expends all of its energy into the activities at the Deerfield Fair.

What does this all have to do with the Bead Bush Studio.  Because of the fair and the traffic, if you wanted to come to the studio, you couldn’t even get here!!!!!  So…the Bead Bush Studio will be closed all week, Sept 25-28.  What are you going to be doing?….I hope you keep beading and do make it to the Deerfield Fair…it a special family event!  There are lots of cows, horses, pigs, handiwork, tools, tractors, oxen pulling contests, food, rides and much more…everything you want in a fair!  I hope to see you there…you know where I will be.

And then everything starts again October…in Deerfield and in the Bead Bush Studio.
