Carol Antrim and Pat Moritz were the two VBGers at Focus again this year and we didn't get pictures of either.  But what the heck, we came to make baskets!

We were disappointed to hear there will be no Midwest Basketry Focus in 2001.  Judy and Lou are going to take a year off but they promise to be back - bigger and better - in 2002.  Looking forward to it!
