Well, based on the comments from my last post, it appears I'm in the minority when it comes to being unknowledgeable about puppets and puppetry!
Beth - great job converting those kids of yours to Muppet fans!
Stacy - thanks for the tip about the puppets in Japanese craft books. I'll need to investigate some more.
Lisa - sadly, I missed the first competition night - which was the puppets - but caught the creative ministries competition. Wow! Powerful stuff. Human videos was another thing I had never heard of before. BTW - that's so cool that your kids are involved in puppet ministry at your church. The kids I saw there were really into it - and really good!
Sewing Chick - love that your cousin is so talented in the world of puppetry that he was a puppeteer in a movie.
Kathleen - thanks for sharing your directions for making a puppet. I think I can handle that one quit easily!
Then there's "Anonymous", who's actually my friend Linda. Turns out Linda not only has some training in puppetry but she may have a puppet I can borrow until I get mine sewn! Jeesh! If only we would have talked about puppets over lunch instead of kids, and work, and husbands I might have discovered this fun little tidbit.
And tomorrow, I return to a subject I do know something about. Sewing!
