General Note/Comment

  • Three color slides. Pacetti with her needlework. From Georgia, she was married to a Minorcan in St. Johns County. A former teacher, Pacetti had already been a participant in the 1983 Florida Folk Festival, and had been interviewed by folklorist Peggy Bulger. In winter 1985, the Bureau joined with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
