Meet Zella Johnson

Zella JohnsonPosition: retired, worked as administrative assistant for 30 years in biology department

Previous Artisans’ Fairs: seven

What she likes best about the Fair: I like the idea of selling my dish cloths and the fellowship between people. I look forward to seeing my co-workers and faculty that I worked with.

Her products: Hand-knitted dish cloths. The yarn that I use is made especially for dish cloths. It is 100% cotton and you can put them in the washer and dryer and they last a very long time.

A little history: I started selling my dish cloths approximately seven years ago when they first started having the fair. It is a hobby of mine and I enjoy knitting.
