PRIMITIVE TECHNOLOGY FAIR 2000
SEPTEMBER 30 - OCTOBER 1ST
PRESQUE ISLE STATE PARK, ERIE PA

    Those in attendance would agree that we were fortunate to have had absolutely beautiful weather for this enjoyable Fall event.  The location at Presque Isle was a perfect setting for this primitive arts fair. Knappers from PA, NY, OH, and IN were represented well.  If you did not attend, plan to attend this ever-growing event next year- you won't be disappointed.
