What's New in 2010

Hey everyone!

We seem to struggle with getting a class listing together. Thank You for your patience. One of our goals is to get better at this in 2010. Below we have listed most of our class offerings. If there is something that you would like to see on our class listing please email us or call the shop and we will make sure it is available for you. KyleAnn is putting together another beginning knitting class. It will be held on Tuesday evenings. Call the shop or email us if you are interested.

March is approaching quickly! We still have a couple of seats available for the Spring retreat. The dates are March 12, 13 & 14 at the Drury Inn on Stringtown Road. The Cost is $335.00 for single occupancy and $290 for multiple occupancy. Great gift bags, prizes through-out the retreat. Most meals are included (lunches on your own, but nice free breakfast bar and plenty of snacks thoroughout the day). Mystery quilt available. Mini classes through-out the retreat. Lots of fun! Call the shop SOON to work out a payment plan.
