Franklin Gem Shows and Faceter's Frolic This Weekend

This weekend (07/24/2014, 07/25/2014 and 07/26/2014) is the annual Franklin Gem Show as well as the USFG Faceter's Frolic. Thanks to Mr. Tom Maxwell and his staff, this is the 7th year of the Frolic.

This year is very special since it is a USFG three day event with classes, programs, demo’s, rough and cut stones/jewelry. It is a great place to get together with others who like to cut stones and make jewelry. It is in a Fun place with games for the young people, but you will find our rooms are very quite where you can enjoy the activities. The Factory also has great food at the Boiler Room and the Pizza Factory. It is free to get into the Factory and the Frolic, since it is now a part of USFG. You will also have the option to purchase tickets for Door Prizes and Grand Prize drawings.

USFG has seen the work we here at William Holland are doing to help students learn all forms of lapidary crafts, along with great beginner and advanced faceting classes and will be offering a one week scholarship for a class of your choice.

For the three day Frolic, USFG members and non-members will be given the chance to complete an Entry Form for the contest when they attend the Frolic. The drawing will be on September 1, 2014. After the Frolic, the contest will be limited to USFG members. This is a great chance to learn from great instructors, so if you can attend a class, come by the Frolic and complete an Entry Form or to sign up for the USFG.

Our hearts go out to longtime instructor Mack Thornton today. On 07/05/2014, Mr. Thornton's daughter, Terry Brown, passed away after an extended illness. Mrs. Dawn Thornton, Mack's wife and longtime instructor here at William Holland as well, also passed away on 07/12/2014. From what we have heard, no services are to be held. Those wishing to contact Mr. Thornton can contact the School and we will put you in touch.

We will miss both Ms. Brown and Mrs. Thornton greatly as they have both been dear friends to all of us at William Holland.
