Sunday Party/Watercolor Bag Class Scheduled

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2005

I just got word from Kim at Yarn Garden in Charlotte, Michigan, that we’re on for a Watercolor Bag class. She does these great Sunday parties that include food and fun and a project (I always marvel at the great food when creative people meet). I did polymer clay buttons and beads for her, I did Basketweave Rug in November, then ColorJoy Stole in January, and now we are doing the LynnH Watercolor Bag in April.

Class will be Sunday, April 10 from 1pm until about 3:30 or 4pm. Price is $25, and that includes a pattern. The drive from Lansing is pleasant, straight down I-69 and then a straight shot (after turning right at the exit) for a couple of miles, very easy to find across from the old courthouse. There is parking right behind the shop. It’s about a half hour from Lansing, and if you bring a friend it’s an excuse to have a very pleasant chat that ends before you know it.

Charlotte’s a sweet, old fashioned, gentle town. I’m sure you’ll love being there as I do. (And the pies at the diner just a block away… they amaze my husband, and he’s reeeeally particular about pie! I buy him a piece on the way home every time I visit Kim.)

You can contact Kim at Kim AT YarnGardenCharlotte DOT com to register, or call her at 517/541-9323 (I think it’s long distance from Lansing). I hope to see a bunch of you great friends there! (What would I do without you local folks? Thanks so much for your support in my classes.)

As usual, the picture today has nothing to do with my subject matter. I finished the needlefelted beret! It’s a purchased beret in a grayed teal, with some handspun/handpainted fingering wt. wool yarn needlefelted in freeform loops and squiggles. I didn’t spin or dye the yarn but it was perfect for the hat. The yarn isn’t quite as bright in person, and the hat color is softer, but that’s the nature of digital photography, I guess.
