Storytelling, bluegrass music, weaving and spinning demonstrations, historic cabin tours, crafts, and prizes!

. We are presenting the 4th annual Spin-A-Yarn Storytelling Festival on Saturday, June 2, 2012 from 11:00-3:00. We are very excited to present storytelling from eleven talented Kentuckiana residents, including Dawn Gee of WAVE 3 News, bluegrass music from The Shuttle Winders, weaving and spinning demonstrations, authentic Cherokee crafts on display, and historic cabin tours. There will also be a raffle for ten pounds of Kentucky-raised beef.

The first 200 visitors to the Spin-A-Yarn Storytelling Festival will receive a free Little Loomhouse t-shirt. General Admission is $2.00 per person. Seniors 65 and older will be admitted for $1.00, and children six and under are free. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. All proceeds benefit The Little Loomhouse. There will be free parking behind DeSales High School at 425 West Kenwood Drive and free TARC Trolley transportation between DeSales and The Little Loomhouse. Please be advised that the Little Loomhouse is in a rustic setting on a steep hill. Access to the storytelling area is via a sloped gravel pathway.

Home of the Happy Birthday Song and founded in 1939 by Master Weaver Lou Tate Bousman, The Little Loomhouse is one of the few organizations devoted to keeping the ancient art of handweaving and its history alive.

Since 1979, it has been operated by the nonprofit Lou Tate Foundation, Inc. The Little Loomhouse consists of three restored, century-old, board and batten cabins listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is designated as a Kentucky State Historic Site, and a Louisville Landmark.

Volunteers provide tours, demonstrations, classes and special programs on spinning and weaving to persons of all ages.
