Crass Commercial for the Kutztown Folk Festival

Jun 2, 2008

This is the time of the year we start to really get serious about plans for the Kutztown Folk Festival and the new fabrics and gifts start arriving.

The 'Wizard of Oz' fabric is so pretty, the colors are just perfect and the panels so versatile. On the web page for the panels you can see pictures of the two tote bags we have made from two of the panels and soon (maybe tomorrow, if things go as planned) you will be able to see a comforter made with the remainder of the panels. Plans are also to have a child's sun dress from one of the prints and a scrubs top at the festival.

One of the new gift items we received are pewter charms. These are about 1/2" to 1" long and we use them as zipper pulls on our zippered tote bags, makes it easier to grab onto the zipper tab. These are on our "More Neat Gifts" page.

When you make plans to come to the festival--notice I said when and not if--be sure to visit the festival web site www.kutztownfestival.com and download the discout admission coupons. You can get 4 coupons on a download and kids under 12 are free. If you live in the NYC area the Bieber Bus Terminal adjoins the festival grounds and the buses run every hour or half hour.

One of the things they used to make at the festival--years and years ago-- is Potato Candy Pinwheels.

Here is our recipe:

Potato Candy Pinwheels

1 medium potato, boiled and mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/2 to 3-1/2 cups powdered sugar
Crunchy Peanut Butter

Add powdered sugar and vanilla to mashed potato in small amounts until mixture is the consistency of cookie batter that can be easily rolled.

Roll out to approximately 1/4" thick.
Spread peanut butter evenly over rolled mashed potato and
carefully roll up, jelly roll style.
Chill 5 hours or overnight.
Slice into 1/4 or 1/2 inch pieces.
Served chilled

When you are at the festival you can answer that age old question, since this is made with potatoes does it count as a serving of vegetables?

Enjoy and happy quilting,
