Barb is away so I am taking over the newsletter. As usual, when Barb is out of town I raid her stash and have some great giveaways.  But before I do that, it is time for MY review of Barb’s class selections for the 2020 Festival. I still have a hard time understanding why she chooses the ones she does, but perhaps it is my lack of knowledge with knitting, crocheting, sewing….?  So here goes!

Virus Stitch with Cindie Bennett: Well this one is not too tough to figure out, it is cold and flu season, but for crying out loud why spread the germs?

Berry Scarf with Laura Barker:  I have worked with different crafts and some paints and glues can get messy, but wow, working with berries is sure to create a mess!

Jelly Roll Rug with Laura Barnes: Another one, isn’t this class bound to get messy and sticky?

Hairpin Lace Crochet with Laura Regan: It must be a very tiny stitch to fit around a hairpin. Bring your reading glasses for this one.

Alcohol Ink Painting with Bev Beatty: Now this is a class I can wrap my head around. I really don’t think anyone can be critical of what your painting looks like after having some alcohol!  Bring on the Rum!!

Ok now on to the good stuff, here is what I have to give away, instructions below on how to enter.

One last thing, please don’t tell Barb about this newsletter, she may fire me. Oh who am I kidding, then who would do all the work? She won’t fire me!!!  Oh and don’t forget to register soon for all of the great classes we have, we are just 3 months away!
