Harrodsburg artist to demonstrate in Berea

BEREA - Harrodsburg artisan Lin Oglesby will demonstrate, and let visitors assist, as she plies together multiple strands of spun yarn used in her knitted and crocheted works Saturday at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea.

Oglesby, who will demonstrate from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., has been working with fiber arts all her life. She learned to knit and crochet from her mother and grandmother and later learned to spin and weave by reading books and then experimenting. She has been a full time weaver since 1979, selling her work through crafts fairs and shops and galleries. Her weaving business got off to a strong start when at her second craft fair the restaurant chain Chi Chi's asked her to decorate 40 of their restaurants. Lin and her husband Steve, who helps with her business, moved to Kentucky in 1996.

The Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea is located just off Interstate 75 at exit 77 (Berea).
