We are in excellent hands with our workshop host.   Linda Kitchell is originally from Erie, PA and has lived in Texas, Delaware, Maryland, Ohio and Florida before finally settling into retirement in Crossville, TN. She has a wonderful family history of potholder weaving:

"Back in the 1960s, my sister and I used to make potholders when we were kids. We made them in pairs, tied them together and put them in our red Radio Flyer Wagon and we would go up and down our neighborhood selling them for $0.50 a pair. We always sold them all! I am never content to do things the normal way for long; I have to experiment and try new things, so I've created these various techniques. I hope you enjoy learning them with me."
