The Flagler Beach Historical Museum promises another fun-filled night as they celebrate their tenth anniversary at a Roaring 20’s Gala.  Read about this event and more in this week’s summary of activities going on in our community.  Click on the link above or at the end of this post to read on!

Princess Place Preserve - site of Creekside Festival

And there’s more on the way.  This year the Annual Creekside Festival will be combined with the Green Expo.    This year marks the Seventh Annual Creekside Festival, and as always, the festivities take place at the beautiful Princess Place Preserve.  There will be music, food, vendors, crafts and more.  The Green Expo was previously held at Palm Coast Town Center in 2009 and 2010.  This is a great combo-activity, and I am glad to see the two events joining forces.  It should be a great weekend.  The weather is usually amazing and in years past the music has been outstanding, so make plans to come on out and enjoy!

I have many readers that don’t live locally so you probably have never experienced the beauty of this park, but I know that your communities have lots of great amenities too.  So be sure to share what’s going on in your part of the world by leaving a comment and sharing your community news.

And if you are ever in the northeast Florida region, I invite you to take in all that we have to offer here in the Northeast Region of the State of Florida.  Palm Coast and Flagler County, Florida.  Beaches, swimming, biking, hiking, trails, fishing and just plan relaxing  —  it’s all here so come on down and visit!  Start learning here.

And I’d love to hear about what’s going on in your communities this fall so be sure to share with me and my other readers by leaving a comment.

Do you think sewing is a lost art? Think again!

Christine Speno: Sewing guild coming to Palm Coast | StAugustine.com.

Just when you thought that the world of technology has totally taken over our lives, something comes to light that makes you realize that some things from generations past never go out of style.  Now I love a story based on history and when I received a request to post some information on a new sewing group forming in my community, I grabbed the opportunity to do a little research about a hobby that I enjoyed for many years — sewing.

People have been sewing as far back as the last Ice Age —  more than 20,000 years ago.  Bone needles have been discovered in archaeology digs with evidence that these needles were probably used to sew together skins and furs.  Our innovative forefathers in Germany created needles from iron way back in the 3rd century B.C.

In 1790, Thomas Saint, a British inventor patented the first running sewing machine, and the craft has been evolving ever since.  Although sewing first was a necessary part of our ancestors’ daily lives, today it can be much more than sewing clothes.  So forget about that Home Ec disaster you may have created back in high school.  Today’s sewers use their creative vision and embrace quilt making and even some ancient arts – like Kanzashi  – a centuries-old art of creating Japanese hair ornaments that were used in traditional Japanese hairstyles.

And today’s sewers in the U.S. have the support of a national organization, the American Sewing Guild (ASG) that promotes sewing as a art form and life skill to be passed on to our future generations.  You can learn more about sewing and its history and movement into the 21st century at ASG or by doing your own research online.  I found links to several sewing guilds and organizations the world over.

So now you know about  one more way to express your creativity through the art of sewing.  Communication knows no limits.  Click on the link above or below to see how sewing is enjoying life in our community of Palm Coast, Florida.

Christine Speno: The arts are in the news in Palm Coast | StAugustine.com

Art might be a painting, or it might be a sculpture.  It might be creating an abstract form from metal or clay, or the sound of music, singing or a character on a stage.  Whatever your taste, there is certain to be something to interest you in Flagler County in the coming weeks.

Read more about things to do in our community by clicking on the link above or here.  And watch for more in the coming weeks about summer activities throughout the Palm Coast and Flagler County area.  I’d love to hear from you so be sure to leave me a comment on any of the posts in this blog.
