Well, well.. here we are!

Good Day!  
We've been so very busy preparing for the holidays, we haven't had the chance to write much in awhile! (dontcha hate it when a blog starts out that way ;) We have several events planned, so I'll start there.

    It’s time to launch our official “Stitch & Bitch” for the winter months! Our first one will be this Saturday, November 5 from 2-5pm. Several of you have asked for it, so be it--We're looking forward to having everyone! Bring any project that you want to work on, be it knitting, spinning, crochet, sewing and spend the afternoon in good company. Who knows what you’ll learn! The first one just happens to be on my birthday, November 5, so we will have coffee, tea, sparkling cider, wine and… cake of some kind! I do so love cake  :D  Mom taught me to be generous, so to celebrate,  I'll host some kind of drawing/give away for people that attend.

November 12, from 2-5. LeeAnn Cisneros of Alamosa and Heaven Scents will host a crochet class for those of you that want to learn. Personally, I find it very handy and creative to be able to do both, so I expect to see some you hard-core knitters along for the ride!  There is no charge for the class itself, just the cost of your supplies-and we’ll give you 10% off of those that day.  

What else… We’ve begun participating in the Phat Fiber Sampler box again. This month’s theme is “Wine Country”. Our colorway is inspired by the foods that are classic accompaniments to good wine and Clara Peters’ “"Breakfast Still-life with Bread, Cheese and Cherries", 17th century. Many of you know that I teach Women’s Art History and I have long loved this painting, so it seemed like the natural choice.  If you’re unfamiliar with the Phat Fiber Sampler program, check it out here: . There is much to get excited about there!
