It Got a Little Crafty in St. George

Visitors to the 33rd Annual World Grits Festival had a lot to choose from in the crafts department.

Vendors came from the area, including St. George, Harleyville and Holly Hill; and, as far away as Myrtle Beach, Greenville/Spartanburg and Irmo to sell their specialty handmade crafts and confectionery creations. I hope everyone had as great a time as I did.


(L-R) Nancy Night, of Harleyville, visits with The Knitting Lady, Peggy Wolfe, also of Harleyville. The Knitting Lady offered an assortment of hand-knitted scarves, afghans, dish cloths, dish scrubbies and sweaters.
