In 1989 Kerry attended the Harvest Festival in San Francisco and found
a kiosk displaying craft pieces that she thought were very interesting,
they were made of straw. She asked the vendor where she could learn
to make these and found out that he (Morgyn Owens-Celli) would be
teaching a class in San Francisco during the coming year. Morgyn's
class in 1990 was so interesting that it made her want to learn more.
She signed up for classes being taught by Judy Laird in Rocklin,
California, near her home, and after that she was hooked. She joined
the California Wheat Weavers Guild. Her skills were further
sharpened by classes from such well known wheat weaving teachers
as Doris Johnson and Veronica Main. Her activities in the CWWG
included serving as Membership Coordinator, State Fair demonstrator,
District Director, and Co-Chairperson of the annual convention.

England and Wales. It is a very popular house blessing.
