Craft lovers fill Kirksville Community Center

Register Staff Report

KIRKSVILLE — The Kirksville Community Center was packed with artists and craft lovers Saturday for the Spring Gathering craft/vendor fair.

Many talented local and regional crafters were set up for the event.

One of the youngest was Laisha Gaines, a 10-year-old from Georgetown, who was selling homemade crafts with her grandmother, Jayne Gaines of Paris. Gaines said she started crafting with Laisha when she was only 3.

Laisha has now taken up most of her grandmother's stand with her creations, from wooden owls to beaded jewelry to small quilted items that are quirky and cute.
