Gazelle Automations returns to OUF!

Gazelle Automations' Lindsay Lee was again a featured artisan at the 2019 Festival de Casteliers OUF! pavilion in Montréal, Canada.

Lindsay had both the new Miikshi the Meek Sheep puppets and classic Lady Penelope and Brains marionettes from Thunderbirds on display … and was surprised by the amount of enthusiasm and excitement for both from young kids!
