Cabarrus County Fair:



It’s that time a year again and the County Fair starts on Friday Sept 14th at 4pm. The fair ends on Sept 19th at 10 pm.


Please keep in mind that this will most likely be our only source for income this year as Hospice will not be in the Mall.

We will have to make this a success in order to have enough money for quality demonstrators.


There are two options for setup, Thursday Sept 10th between 2 pm and  5 pm and Friday Sept 11 between  9 am and 2 pm.

I would like to schedule the setup for Thursday Sept 10th between 3 pm and 5 pm. If it can’t be completed a couple of us can finish on Friday.

We will need a few people at the studio on Wednesday evening or Thursday early afternoon to help load the trailer. I’ll get back to you on this.


Sept 11th – Sept 19th

The Fair hours this year are weekdays

Monday through Friday  4 pm – 10 pm

Saturdays                         1 pm – 10 pm

Sunday                            1 pm – 10 pm



Next Monthly Meeting:  Our next monthly meeting will be Tuesday, September 15th at Clear Water Artists Studio at 6:30 pm.  Bob Moffet will be doing a platter demo and Napier Breen will be the turner of the month.


Workshop in October: Mark Wanninger from Indiana will be joining us to do a demo for us Friday, October 25th and Saturday October 26th so mark you calendar.  Mark's work can be seen on his website at  Additional information will follow.


Don't forget to bring in your ornaments for Hospice to place on our tree!
