Thanks for all your thoughts & prayers. Looks like Papa, as far as the brain is concerned, should make a full recovery. Other than a really bad headache and nausea, he appears to have no lasting brain damage. As far as the rest of his almost ready to retire body, only time and physical therapy will tell.
The sheep to batt class rescheduled for this Friday, Feb 4th, 10-2pm, cost $25(includes 1/2 pound fiber) is a go and we have 2 spaces open.
The felt bag class for Sat. Feb 12th is currently full, but I am happy to start a waiting list which will receive priority for future classes.
Remember my last e-mail where I said life was a moving target and schedules change? Well, my target just moved and I have to go out of town for a family emergency. My step-dad, the love of my mom's life, fell from a ladder at work onto a cement floor and is in ICU with brain trauma. Prognosis is good, but I know it will be a weight off my mom's mind if I go up to hang out with my grandfather who lives with them.
I will be closed Friday Jan 28th and the sheep 2 batt class will be rescheduled for Friday Feb. 4th 10am-2pm. Monte will be here Saturday, Jan 29th, for your fiber needs.
Hope everyone is enjoying our spring in January! Probably not the best thing for skiers & boarders, but my critters are enjoying the mild weather. All the mommies to be are looking plump, but can still lay down comfortably. AAAAh the golden trimester of pregnancy.
Sheep 2 Batt class - Friday, January 28th, 10-2 (Bring a lunch). I have had a couple of cancellations and now have room for 2. Just drop me an e-mail to have your name added to the list.
Felt Bag with Liz - Saturday, Feb. 12th, 12-4pm. At this time we have space for 1 more! If interested, send an e-mail and I will let you know if your make it in the class. Life is a moving target and cancellations are common.
40% off table - With this mild weather, I have set up a 40% off table that will be outside the door on nice days, and I'm not sure where, on inclimate days. Currently available are wet felting kits, the rest of my linen cotton yarn, and roving from my girls. Be sure to check it out next time in.
Spin-in Saturdays - We continue to meet Saturdays 12-whenever to encourage and inspire. Whether you come to spin, knit, crochet, or just sit and enjoy camaraderie, it's always an uplifting experience.
Finally, a note from Kelly Riley:
I have opened a 'shop' on Etsy for my fiber art, music and eventually, photography. Please take a look (if it strikes your fancy) and feel free to forward the link to others that may be interested.
We survived another holiday season complete with a visit from our college student! This is supposed to be a time of celebration & joy, so why do I find it so stressful? Don't answer that, I'm sure it's a personal problem.
Felt Bag Class - I have had a lot of interest in Liz's bag class and would like to schedule a date in February. If interested, just e-mail a list of days (other than Wed) that work for your schedule.
Sheep 2 Batt Class - Friday January 28th 10am-4pm- This class is currently full, but I am willing to start a waiting list if you didn't make it in. Currently signed up are (first names only to protect the innocent):
Nancy, Bobi, Connie, Sara, Marlene, & my customer visiting from the East coast who's name I thought for sure was written on my calendar, but now I find is not. If I overlooked anyone else, please let me know. If you need to cancel, please advise ASAP so someone else can have your space.
Last but not least - I was recently contacted by a party who is researching the opening of a new artist & antique outlet. If interested in someplace to sell your finished products (how many hats, scarves, and gnomes does one person need?), just email us and we can send you the questionnaire!
