Video: Sam Locke Ward and William Elliott Whitmore, What a Load of Craft VII


This Saturday marked the seventh annual What a Load of Craft event, drawing hundreds of craft enthusiasts to the Johnson County Fairgrounds to enjoy live music, countless homemade goods and locally-provided vittles.

Those who braved the blizzard-like conditions were treated to the musical talents of William Elliott Whitmore, Skye Carrasco, Sam Locke Ward and Lipstick Homicide, among others. Craft Death Match competitions for adults and children alike broke up the music offerings, while hundreds of shoppers hopped along from booth to booth, happily perusing what our local crafters have been busy cooking up since last year’s festival.

Conveniently enough, plenty homemade winter gear, including scarves, hats and mittens, was available for purchase. A festival for all seasons, those looking for locally screen printed t-shirts, jewelry or wall decor had plenty of booths to browse as well.

There’s plenty of video from both William Elliott Whitmore and Sam Locke Ward’s sets below. Check it out, and be sure to stay tuned for info on next year’s What a Load of Craft event.
