6th Annual Janice Holt Giles and Henry Giles Arts and Crafts Festival
The 6th annual Janice Holt Giles and Henry Giles Arts and Crafts Festival will be held on October 2, 2004 from 9 to 4 central time at the historical site in Knifley Kentucky. This annual event is held each October to raise money for the Giles Foundation.
This year we will be featuring
Ron Whitehead and Sarah Elizabeth folk musicians in our musical line up. We are also proud to feature The Bailey Family, Joyful Spirit, and various other musicians. The music will be held on the front porch of the house.
We will also feature local book signings by several local authors.
Dr. Lynwood Montell, a member of the Giles Foundation and authur of several Kentucky books including Ghosts Along the Cumberland will be signing books.
We are proud to also have Erenstine Bennett signing her recent book on Country Stores. Mrs. Bennett has compiled two books on country stores that once operated or that are still in operation in Adair County. Several more authors will be available to sell their books.
The Giles Foundation will have some of the best Kentucky arts and crafts for sale at this year's event, with arts and crafts ranging from pottery, candles, stain glass, soap, paintings, cards, baskets, and various other high quality arts and crafts. If you are interested in a booth you still have time to get a space.
Once again Margaret Dunn and Dalton Coomer will be demonstrating basket making and chair bottoming. These two items will be raffled off with the proceeds going to the Giles Foundation. Other items will be sold also.
The Giles Foundation will also have great Kentucky food for sale. Charles Sparks will be in charge of the grill. He and his crew will be serving breakfast and lunch. The breakfast line up will feature great country ham and lunch will feature the Green River Beef Association's great hamburgers. We will also have great deserts and all the trimmings.
The Giles Foundation will be selling membership, books, t-shirts, books, and various other items. The foundation will be in the cabin with these products.
You will want to attend this year's event to see all of the improvements that the Giles Foundation have made to the property. We will have a new parking lot that will help with parking this year. The house has had improvements made to it including a new roof and the garage has been removed. We think Janice and Henry would be glad to see the rebirth of the cabin.
