Welcome to our new participant from Louisiana!

Greg Little Woodworks of Prairieville, Louisiana is a new participant in America Craft Week and we extend the warmest of welcomes!  Greg Little gives a great introduction to himself on his website..quote:
"We all start somewhere in our journey of doing what we love to do. My creative journey started when I was around 12 years old. As a young child I watched and learned as my Dad, Uncle and Grand Papa built pirogues in the garage. It’s quite an experience to go out duck hunting in the marsh using a homemade pirogue (even if I did flip over into the water a time or two)... These are the kind of great memories that last a lifetime."
Now don't you just want to go find out more? He's master woodworker and has won many awards...even if he thinks he's having too much time doing it!! So give him a call (number's on the webiste) and find ot when he's doing a show, or arrange to head on over to Prairieville,LA and see Greg and his crafted woodwork.
