The list of workshops along with the instructors bios are also listed. We have a great lineup this year with something for everyone. You can look and drool, but registration doesn’t open till March 1, 2019.
We recently mailed out postcards to people on our mailing list that we didn’t have emails. We have asked them to please send them to us through email@example.com. Be sure to include your first and last name on the reply.
For those of you that we have your email, if your email address has changed, we would also like you to update us at this time.
We are currently working on creating a mass mailing through mail chimp. To much of my surprise, we have several people on our old mailing list for booklets that we don’t have emails for. If you have received a show booklet through the mail in the past, please send me your current email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
We recently made our web site secure. Future participants who register for workshops, their information will be secured.
We have recently made our site secured for all future registrations. All future workshop registrations will be secure for the safety of our participants.
We are trying to reach out to all of the knitting, crocheting, rug hooking and fine arts guilds to follow us on Facebook as well as our web site. If you belong to any of these types or organizations, please pass the word on. Our vendors have beautiful and unique yarns as well as supplies and equipment for all of those who like to spin and weave as well as rug hooking.
