The Latest

I just don't know where the time goes, January has flown by!

New hand painted Targhee tops are in, lovely colorways. The New Zealand Corriedale Sliver and Merino Tops have been replenished, a great selection available. Hand dyed silk hankies are in stock again, and I'll have more Gale's Art hand painted BFL by the end of next week.

A new order of Cushing's Dyes came in yesterday, and the latest Quilting Arts magazine is in.

And just a reminder...Sunday, February 1, is SPINNING GROUP here at The Studio, 12-4. Hope you can make it!

I've got to scoot, I hope to post again soon.

Happy New Year!

Hi everyone. Hope your holiday season was bright and merry. Now it's time to get our noses back to the grindstones! Speaking of grindstones...New Year's Day was "Rock Day" for the Weaver's Guild of MN at the Textile Center. It's a once-a-year event and it's really fun. The idea is: after a season of merry-making and celebrating the holidays, it's time to get back to work! This was my second year at Rock Day and I love it. Virginia Parent is our gracious hostess, it's pot luck, and we spin, knit, weave, visit, eat, drink!

The 2009 Winter Class Schedule is online now, take a peek. We've put together some great classes (as usual).

Just a reminder that the shop will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays through the end of January (and possibly longer). We will maintain our normal Wednesday thru Sunday hours.

Spinning group is tomorrow. Of course it's gotten to be the joke that I schedule the group for a Sunday when the weather is inclement! (not true!) We'll see who the hardy Minn-e-so-tans are...we're supposed to get up to 4" of snow between now and tomorrow.

Have to run, hope you're having a great extended New Year's week-end.
