Learn more about your favorite artisans from the Sugarloaf Craft Festivals. This week, meet soap and personal care maker Wayne Parker off Whispering Willow Soap Co. Be sure to meet Wayne at the next Sugarloaf Crafts Festival and stock up on small batch specialty soaps and bath products!
Q. Where is your hometown?
A. Lincolnton, NC – a small town near the foothills of Western North Carolina.
Q. What’s your favorite part about attending Sugarloaf Craft Festivals?
A. The community of exhibitors! It always takes me twice as long to set up my booth at Sugarloaf Craft Festivals because I spend so much time visiting and catching up with the other exhibitors, my friends. This truly is a family of artisans.
Q. Have you been tempted to check out the other art on display here this weekend?
A. I adore D & M Flowers. Dee’s booth is like an amazing flower garden and the attention to detail is inspiring!
Q. If you could work the booth with any artist who ever lived, who would your side-kick be?
A. Robin Williams. While he is best known and loved for his remarkable sense of humor, he was also a very kind, caring and thoughtful individual. I think he would be great at the many different interactions we have with customers in our booth.
Q. What’s been your most popular product thus far?
A. Our lavender neck pillows are hands down our most popular item. Folks love to warm them up, get a glass of wine and a good book, and spend the afternoon unwinding.
