Artisans MarketplacePreview: Shoulda, Coulda, Wooda!

My name is Jadyn Coulter and I am 13 years old. I am one of the youngest members of the Orange County Scroll Saw Association, and I have been cutting wood for five years.

This is my fifth year selling at the ENC Christmas Artisans Marketplace and I have made many fun memories since I started!…
