Midwest Basketry Focus 1998
In March 1998, Midwest Basketry Focus - An Alternative Conference
celebrated its fifth anniversary. Held at Higher Ground Retreat Center in
southeast Indiana, the gathering featured exciting instructors, an open
slide show, mini-classes, and marketplace. A guest speaker, vendors, and
a massage therapist added special touches to the creative excitement.
Exhibits and awards, tons of class space, great food, fresh country air,
and lots of enthusiasm and inspiration were enjoyed by the 99 attendees.
