New class offerings at the shop for fall! Yeah! My friend, Chris Sayles, of Sweet Briar Studios will be offering classes in penny rug work and quilting as well as our regular schedule of rug hooking classes. There will be kits available for "make and take" penny projects and those who choose to continue can join our class for the Home and Harvest hanging in Quilters Magazine. I am also carrying fulled wool for hooking and penny work available in yardage and smaller pieces. Classes are available day or evening and are limited to 4-5 participants each. Knitting and spinning classes continue as usual and are usually per student rather than in groups though there is room to vary. Also coming up will be "make and take" needle felting classes for small Christmas ornaments. The new SpinnOff is in as is the new Interweave Knits. Come in to see our kits and finished goods. Hope to see you soon, su

I'm sure I started with 31 days.......Perhaps I've misplaced some... Maybe in the garden or at the office? Could it be those naughty pups lead by that hell hound Belle. Oh well, if you find them or have any extra that you don't plan to use, give me a call. I may just be able to take a few off your
