What a beautiful Easter weekend we have just finished. We can all appreciate this wonderful weather after such a long winter! We have been having fun with all the beautiful spring fabrics and yarns filling the shop right now.

We have planned some great new classes for you this month. Some filled up before we could get this newsletter out, but we included them for you information. If you are interested in any of the filled classes, please let us know! We can add your name to the waiting list or let you know if another class is added to the schedule before next month.

Remember that our teachers will give you a private lesson if a class time doesn't fit your schedule. Call the shop at 336/765-9099 for details.

Come join us for a spring season filled with fun and creativity!
