Rug Braiding Workshop in February
hope you had a nice holiday but fear some of you have had a terrible
time of it. What an odd weather situation the US has endured this past
week -- everything from tornadoes and flooding to unseasonably hot
weather to snow in places where snow is rarely seen. Hopefully things
will calm down in 2016.....can you believe it's already 2016?! We say
this every new year but doesn't it seem like just a few months ago we
were concerned about Y2K.
We are very excited to let you know we've booked a class from a
non-local teacher......we're excited but also kind of scared because
having someone come from outside the area means additional expenses and
lodging and travel.....but we know it's going to be fun.
Aileen Anderson of Bear Creek Rugs will be teaching her braided rug
technique on Feb 18 & 19. The class will last 2 days (9:00-3:00).
Lunch both days will be included in your $200 fee. If you'd like to
sign up, please call us at 479-372-7403 or e-mail at
The photos below show examples of the technique that will be taught.
You will need to have a hooked piece in order to learn the technique.
Debby is working on preparing folders for
all our block of the month participants....yes....even though you may
live far away you get a folder. We're happy to hold what you want and
make a once a month mailing to save postage. If you haven't contacted
us with payment and/or shipping info, please give a call or e-mail so we
can be sure you get your block of the month on time.
As a reminder, Wooly Sheep is our $10 block of the month and will begin in January.
While Kay vacationed in Florida for
Christmas she stitched on Merrie Christmas by Buttermilk Basin. We plan
to offer this as a block of the month with a February start date. Cost
is $19.95 per month and includes the pattern with full size templates,
background fabrics, wool for the applique, border and binding. We have
openings so if you're interested, please let us know.
If you are looking closely at the photo you may notice snowmen with no
noses, an ornament without a top and a broom handle with no
straw......that's because some critical pieces of wool were left in
Arkansas. Be assured your kit will have noses, tops, and brooms (insert
We will keep this short since many of you
are making New Years preparations. We'll be doing our same normal
(somewhat boring) New Years activities and hitting the hay by 10:00.
The shop will be open regular hours today (Thurs) and Saturday.
