LEWISBURG - Packwood House Museum's series of free summer programs for kids continues on Tuesday with a potholder-making workshop that starts at 10:30 a.m. in the museum's Tour Center, 15 N. Water St.
Selinsgrove artist Margie Nugent will teach kids 6 and older how to use small looms to make colorful and useable potholders.
All supplies are provided. Since space is very limited, parents are asked to call the museum at 524-0323 to register their children. Light refreshments also will be available.
The Rev. Dr. Margie Nugent was born in Ireland.
Her dad was a master sergeant in the Army and served four tours of duty overseas.
The family moved often during his military service, allowing Nugent to see the world and meet people from many cultures.
When not traveling with her dad, Margie stayed with her mom, a native of Savannah, Ga. Nugent has loved the arts since she was a child, and continues to paint, compose music and enjoys other equally creative endeavors.
She and her husband began using horses to help handicapped children learn more than 20 years ago.
