OcraFolk School

More than 30 students from several different states will be arriving on Ocracoke later today to register for the 5th annual OcraFolk School. The School is a week long immersion in island life, handcrafts, group solidarity, and shared meals.

This year five classes are being offered -- English Paper Piecing (a form of lap quilting), Island Cooking, Ocracoke Music, Island Photography, and Ocracoke Sampler (history, culture, and seafaring traditions of Ocracoke Island).

    Weather should be awesome for your OcraFolk classes. Envious of the 30 "students". Maybe I'll be able to enjoy a class one year. It's on my "bucket list".... :)
