Best in Show!
While attending the Waterford Craft Fair in Waterford, Virginia, we at Pergamena were surprised to discover that both prizes of Best New Craft and Best New Demonstrator for the 2009 show had been awarded to us! Apparently, our on-the-road demonstration of stretching and scraping parchment was a hit with fair judges and attendees alike. So, our thanks to the members of the Waterford Foundation for allowing us to attend last year, and for making this year as fun and successful. We'd also like to extend our appreciation to our friend Alice Vaughan from the Hudson River Bindery for coming along and being able to put up with Jesse and Stephen.
