Clean-up, Clear-our, and Donate -
Thank you again for all the wonderful donations. Doesn't it feel good to clear out that left-over stash! We continue to send at least two large bags of yarn to the ladies each week and they are delighted! Feel free to drop off any yarn, full or partial skeins and we will get them to one of several Senior Centers with whom we work! If you have a Senior Center or group to whom you would like us to consider donating, just drop us an note.
Our suppliers have been busy and sending us some beautiful new items. Some of the latest to arrive includes:
LobsterPot Cashmere direct from New Hampshire
Jade Sapphire's new Cashmeres from Scotland - Brigadoon and Tartan with a number of new patterns.
Rowan's Kid Silk Haze Glamour - Kid Silk with Sequins - one of the big hits of our Westminster Yarn Tasting! Free pattern available for our model scarf.

Our next class will be offered on January 20th and 27th. You will leave at the end of the second class with a completed 8" traditional Nantucket Basket. The cost of the class is $195 which includes all materials and tools. Call or email for more details or visit us to see samples of these great treasures.
We are also considering scheduling an oval basket class and would like to know who's interested in taking their weaving to the next level.
Heads - Our Feet and Hands classes were a great success so we want to be sure we know what to do with our ears and head. We have several one session workshops on Hats and Headbands. The goal is to understand the technique for making the perfect fitting hat or headband starting with proper measurements, gauge, patterns, and various crown finishes for your hat. The cost of the class is $25 with 10% off materials purchased for the class. The sessions will be 3 hours and scheduling dates right now, so let us know if you're interested.
