September finds us still busy as bees with our last classes of the year while the weather is still welcoming in our spacious and open Barn studio. Look for news in October concerning exciting developments for classes starting Spring 2021. Until then we will be moving, reconfiguring, and still letting you know of new products every month along with details of our progress in our Bassett Homestead location.
Swedish Classics September 14-18We have one spot available in our Swedish Classics class next week. If you are from MA or a “safe” state allowed to travel into MA, let us know if you’re interested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The projects are gorgeous and quintessentially Swedish.
