Got Class

Sorry for the long radio silence...Mike was home this week to help me while I recuperated from some minor surgery and I swear, it's so much busier when I have help ;) Yesterday we attempted to find "Dogtown", a ghost town from the 1800's up in Gloucester...yes, that's exactly what I should be doing while trying to take it easy...hiking through the underbrush into the woods to find some old stones while Lily screams her head off...ahhhh, it was so relaxing...we never learn. Anyway, this week I did manage to put together class descriptions of two new series of classes that I will be teaching. The first block of Beginning Sewing classes is already filled but I do have spaces open for the second block. And I will be back at Crunchy Granola Baby (best store ever for natural baby clothes and diapers and toys...and so many awesome workshops and classes...thank you Jennie!) to teach some Home Eco workshops. Here is the info:

These classes will be held in two class blocks and will be very small so that I can give a lot of individual attention - 4 students max. Cost will be $30 for each of the two class sessions. Email me or call 978-744-1596 if you are interested!
