The annual John Blue Cotton Festival is held the second weekend of October each year on the grounds of the historic John Blue home. Sherry was there this year – the 34th annual event – to talk about spinning cotton.

Highlights included a horse-powered cotton gin, displays of old timey tractors and cars, ice cream made on the premises for sale, crafts, music, and face painting.
Sherry even got her picture in the paper!
