The Acadian Weavers and Spinners (Louisiana) took part in the Ville Platte Cotton Festival in October. The community of Ville Platte has one of the oldest festivals in Louisiana, and the 2007 King Cotton was Jimmy C. Newman, a Nashville country singer originally from Big Mamou, Louisiana. Members demonstrated and interpreted weaving and spinning wool, silk, and brown and white cotton on wheels and CD drop spindles during the King’s Reception.
