I will be teaching crochet classes at the Friends and Fiberworks Winter Retreat, Jan 18-20. I will have a basic beginning crochet class from 1 -4 PM on the 18. On the 19th from 1 – 4 I will be doing a hyperbolic crochet class and on Sunday the 20th from 1 – 4 I will teach a pattern reading class for those who know basic stitches but want to learn to follow a pattern.

Here are some of the handmade items I plan to have for sale Saturday at the Riceville Christmas Market at the Riceville community center from 10 – 4.
The first two pictures are School Colors reversible beanies and are of totally machine washable and dryable superwash wool blend. Next is a basketweave beanie that I designed of alpaca, wool, silk and bamboo- it should be handwashed and dried flat. The next picture is a supersoft alpaca knit scarf with wool/ silk trim and matching fingerless gloves. These are also only handwashable. The last two pictures are the basketweave scarf that matches the beanie- this is also alpaca, wool and silk and bamboo and must be handwashed.
I just received 20 skeins of natural Euroflax sport. I have no record of anyone having ordered this yarn- if you have been waiting for this-PLEASE contact me right away. I don’t really have space to store this.
On Nov. 17 from 11 until 3 we will be at the new Venezia Dream Farm on Pisgah View Drive in Candler for the first open farm day at this new location. I will have handmade items and the 3 other farms participating will also have nice warm items(and we will also have wonderful alpaca yarn) just in time for Christmas. On Dec. 8 all of us will once again be at the Riceville Community Center for their fire department’s Holiday Market- a great place to shop for all kinds of holiday gifts and treats while supporting that community’s volunteer firefighters.
