Welcome back! I hope you are all staying warm out there on these frosty mornings. While the temperature outside is getting colder in Ohio, things are nice and toasty here in the mill as we continue to process over 20 pounds a day. The carder is back up and running after a couple days of battling technical issues, so we are working our way back into full production.
In last week's blog I mentioned a couple of events we have coming up in November; the Barn & Bunk Craft Show and the the Edgewood High School Craft Show. We will have booths at both of these Saturday events, so be sure to stop by and visit us! You can find out more information about both of these events here.
But since last week, we have added a new class to our agenda!
Yep! A Christmas Ornament Needle Felting Class!
Liz Worley is organizing this class, which I am super excited for it because its all about the basics of needle felting (a very versatile fiber skill.) Plus it gives you the opportunity to take something handmade home with you! In this case, cute little felted Christmas Ornaments like the ones in the photos above and below.
The class will be held here at The Yarn Barn @ Blessed Criations on Saturday December 2 (you have plenty of time to mark your calenders!) from 1pm to 3pm. All ages are encouraged to participate and have fun making ornaments and socializing with other crafters. The materials you need to create your ornaments, as well as refreshments, will be provided during the class. So bring your loved ones and come enjoy a day of craft making with us! Find more information and sign up for the class on our website or Facebook Page.
Also a reminder that we are still hosting our Yarn of the Month Club, and all are welcome to join in at any time! As a member of our Yarn of the Month Club program, you will receive a kit containing a surprise skein of yarn, a 100 yd. sample of complimentary color yarn, and a pattern, every month. There are no rules, no pressure to finish on time, just inspiration and encouragement for you to knit with us and finish a project every month! You can purchase a month, six-month, or year membership. To find out more info on our Yarn of the Month Club, check out the link right > here.
If you live in Southwest Ohio, our Open Craft Nights the second and fourth Thursday of every month, are a great way to connect with other local fiber enthusiasts. We are hosting Craft Nights from 6 PM to 8 PM. After tonight's meeting, we will meet again on November 9th, so bring those CHristmas gifts in the making and come make things with us!
Thanks so much for checking in! I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week, and the coming weekend. Stay warm out there, and as always ~keep crafting~
Stay tuned next week for more from us here at The Yarn Barn :)
