...we need a renewed drive to present the best of what we produce in handmade rugs and get that idea of innovation and lasting value to the public. Only a true market can do this for the retailer -- to see new things, make new contacts, explore new avenues. Dennis Dodds is making that effort, to bring together in the best market town a group of exhibitors who have that goal in mind. John D. Kurtz, New Moon Rugs
