Berea woodworker in need

Friends and supporters of Pine Croft,

The shop of Steve Farmer, owner and operator of Bittersweet Woodworking in Berea, KY, was destroyed last week in a fire.  Steve is a fixture in the craft community, previously working as part of the team here at Berea College Student Craft and as an independent woodworker here in Berea for over 40 years. The studio was also used by artist and woodworker Robert Bagley. The entire structure and all equipment and inventory were completely destroyed. Thankfully no injuries occurred.

There is a way to donate funds, for those of you who may like to support Steve and Robert as they work through this loss and towards their future plans.  A GoFundMe page has been established for them by fellow Berea woodworker Tim Wade.
