November is the month we receive thousands of Visitors to see Mepkin’s unique Creche Collection. Our job was preparing for the event to have everything ready to welcome the guests. One highlight every year is the huge wreath that Jamie Nelson and her helpers fashion for the tower of the Luce Library. The 2013 Wreath is made completely with pine cones; please note that all the materials are natural, and even the bow is woven from palms.
