Just a reminder that the 16th Annual Indiana Gourd Show is being held at the St Joseph County Fair Grounds in South Bend, Indiana on April 4, 5 and 6th. If you haven't seen magnificent gourd art before, do put the dates on your calendars and check it out. Workshops are also being offered as well as competitions - you will be amazed! You can do a search for Indiana gourd show and get all the information you need or you can email me.

Hope to see you there!

Hey - you should've been there! This was one of the best Gourd Shows I have been to. Lots of great classes, the new location was superb, lots of wonderful vendors and the gourd competitions were amazing! Have to brag tho that Michigan gourd artists took home over 60 ribbons! Awesome gourds!
If you get a chance to get to a gourd show in your area take the time to travel and enjoy yourselves! When we get photos processed we will post them so you can see just what can be done with the humble gourds - you will be impressed!
Happy Spring

Hi Rita,
Thanks for the great report on the Gourd Show! I'm glad to hear that it went so well.
Congrats to the Michigan gourd folk on all the ribbons.

I'm getting a late start on ordering my seed, but looking forward to getting my gourd patch up and growing.

Hi all - I finally got the photos of the Michigan gourds that were entered in competition posted to a storage site ... be sure to check them out! If you don't know about gourd art you are in for a terrific surprise when you see what can be done with gourds. Enjoy!
Jan - glad you are back home safely and hope you had a good time "out west"! You missed a really good show.
Cheers - Rita in Michigan
