[BKARTS] Jim Croft's 2009 Old Ways Workshops & Upcoming Appearances



For those of you unfamiliar with him, Jim Croft lives and works in Santa,
Idaho where he grows flax, beats fiber with his stamping mill, fells trees
for book boards, and scavenges the forest for elk and deer carcass for the
bones to make tools.

Jim's online access is limited so he's asked me to post the dates for 2009's
OldWays Workshops, as well as an upcoming appearance. Please contact him
directly at oldway@xxxxxxxxxxx

Apologies for cross-posts.
