A few months ago, I had the pleasure of taking a road trip to West Virginia to visit family. My sister suggested we visit an artisan center displaying the work of West Virginian artists...I was intrigued.  As we arrived, looming before us was a place called TAMARACK, aptly named for the resilient Tamarack tree, native to West Virginia. The nation’s first center for a state’s handcrafts, Tamarack opened in 1996. The facility is built in a circle with the star quilt pattern as its architectural design. Never did I expect to see such a vast and beautiful display of artisans' work!!
