Young and old display their wares at McGregor’s Fall Arts and Crafts Festival

Halbur’s mother, Joleen Brincks, chooses most of the dishes, which largely come from Goodwill, while Halbur does the assembly.

When Halbur first began experimenting with the craft a few years ago, he used glue to hold the dishes together. However, now the dishes are held together with hardware in order to make them more weather resistant.

Jewlerymaker Vicki Bedeian, who is from Blue Grass, Iowa, demonstrates how she makes her Viking knit bracelets.

Bedeian then demonstrated how she sizes the jewelry.

Austin Ruff of Farmersburg shows off some of the pumpkins he and his mom, Connie, had for sale at the McGregor Fall Arts and Crafts Festival.

Michelle Rolling of Maquoketa shows off one of her cutting boards.

There were plenty of Halloween decorations to choose from at the Fall Arts and Crafts Festival.

JoAnn Hutchinson of Manchester creates some more of her "Jazzy Jems."

Wauzeka's Paul Straka handcrafted these beautiful lamps.

Dean and Nancy Dieckman of Cashton, Wis. sold glassware with decorative lighting inside.

Charlie Tonn of Monticello poses with some of his creations, which combine pottery and stained glass.
