Living Traditions Festival 2017:

Anne once again participated in Salt Lake City’s annual Living Traditions Festival this past week-end to represent Scotland with her tartan weaving display and demonstration. It was a little chilly but the clouds parted and the rain stopped just in time to open the gates and a jolly, all inclusive cultural sharing good time was has by all!

Ridge was a big help and a hit in his kilt, bundling up in our woolies was just right for the highland-ish weather!

It was especially nice to have many friends and family stop by for a visit (sister Paige and Mama Marguerite pictured here)
