THE GOURD GATHERING AT CHEROKEE IS ON!
Nineteen years of reunion, tradition, destination, and experience!
Cherokee 2021 offers five days of fun, learning, and shopping, packed with nearly EIGHTY classes. Gourds are everywhere--raw, finished, and in process.
The FOWL play competition entries are to depict a fowl or a flock of fowl--water fowl or land fowl--chickens, ducks, geese, guineas, peacocks, you name it! Details on the website at gourdgathering.org. Entries are judged, donated to the Gathering, and auctioned off to raise funds for Cherokee 2022.
Curly dipper gourds are hot this year! Take one or more and be creative. Entries are displayed, and winning entries are recognized. On Sunday morning, there is an exchange--if you entered a curly dipper, you will take home a curly dipper created by another attendee.
The ever popular White Elephant table offers gourding supplies and other goodies. Bring things you are not using, and buy things you "need"! It is a super yard sale! Pack a couple of boxes and bring them along.
The Make and Take this year offers fishy fun! You will love this creative project and will be ready to make schools of fish to go with your flocks of fowl. Creation Station will be set up on the porch, and offers an opportunity to complete a project at your own pace.
And VENDORS! This is your opportunity to visit the best gourd vendors, all in one location. Find the gourds of your dreams...and more. Supply vendors, finished gourd vendors, and tool vendors will also be set up from Wednesday through Sunday. Shop, shop, shop.
We are looking forward to a wondrful five days of fun and friendshop.
