Hello, Folks! Just a quick post to say the Felted Wool Blanket Master Classstarts tomorrow! You can step right in and begin forthwith to create your own felted wool blanket. This is a great time of year to work on a blanket, as life is a little quieter than usual…plus, um, it’s cold.
Want to learn more? Go here to read all the info about the class. You can sign up there too.
(Please note: Enrollment for the class will stay open an extra week (through January 26) as I inadvertently caused a frustrating sign-up glitch when I first launched enrollment. Ugh! If you have any trouble signing up, contact me directly and I’ll help get you squared away.)
Sunday, Nov. 4, from Noon to 4 p.m. in Arlington Heights, IL (email greensheepjo [at] gmail [ dot] com for the address)
Participating Vendors include:
Bob’s Wine Bottle Lights
Mini Massage by Back In Balance
The Green Sheep
Willow House Jewelry by Sara Blaine
Willow House Style For Home
My friend Kathy, who I met over a Green Sheep blanket, is hosting this wonderful open house in her own home. I’m honored to be a part of it! If you live in the area, please come. Email me at greensheepjo [at] gmail [dot] com to get the street address. There’ll be refreshments and raffles in addition to a wide assortment of gifts. You’ll find great ideas for family, friends, teachers, hostesses, and even you. We’re all working hard to put on a great day for you!
Over at Creative Chicks Cafe, Patty and her co-authors Kate, Jenny, and Rob highlight artists and crafters that they meet in various places. They’ve created an interesting blog to stop by and learn about all sorts of creative people. I have really been enjoying browsing there.
Patty recently asked me for an interview — it was an honor to oblige her. She has written a gracious post all about The Green Sheep and what’s behind it. Click Creative Chicks Cafe to see her write-up. Thank you, Patty; that was fun!
Thank you to everyone who came on over to the open house last weekend! Between you and the sunshine we had, it was a beautiful day. Friends Jamie and Ismael brought their wares as well (tote bags and animals by Jamie and homemade fresh salsa by Ismael), daughter Grace baked the very delicious buckwheat cheese straws from Heidi Swanson’s 101 Cookbooks blog, friend Deborah provided the colorful flowers, and daughter Hope set up her iPod’s collection of Christmas music. I felt blessed by the presence of all!
I’m vacuuming up the house after my sew-a-thon of the past week, getting ready for The Green Sheep’s open house this weekend. There are new baby lovies, new mittens, sachets, coasters (!), wraps, and of course, blankets. I hope you are able to stop in, enjoy the company, and see what’s here. If you need directions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
