Next week is September!  I am looking forward to a more regular schedule.  When the kids were little we had our daily plan:  Get up, go to school, do the after school thing, have supper go to bed.  Wednesdays was Piano Lessons;Thursdays were for Junior Choir; and Guides and Cubs and 4-H filled the rest of the week.  The summers were more chaotic, baseball, soccer, 4-H and jobs kept everyone hopping..

This past summer routine went out the window, store renovations, mini vacations, special events!  Even the drive in requires a new plan, the bridge is being repaired on our road, so I have to go North and over to get to town.  Forgetting means you have to go home the long way.

Sometimes taking a new turn, trying new things is a good way to get your creative juices going.  September is a great time to think about learning something new.  You asked about lessons and so we have made a plan, it certainly needs some adjustments, your input is greatly appreciated

 Lessons, workshops and Clinics!  Opportunities for you to learn a new skill and meet some like-minded artists!

We are starting slowly:

 Knitt'n Nights will now have a Knitting basics class with Helen.  Its a small group, just 3 participants and $15 for 90 minutes of instruction.  You choose which Knitting technique you would like to learn and Helen will get you going!
(September 11, 25th, October 9, 23rd.  6:30 - 8 pm)  Payment ensures your spot in the class.

Socks with Gwen:  Saturday Mornings: September 21, 28 and October 5.  10 am - 11:30.  Basic top down construction of a sock, must be able to knit and purl.  Choose either, 4-5 needles or magic loop; make a Christmas Stocking, work sock or traditional fingering weight sock.   $45 (plus HST) and materials.( Pattern and yarn must be purchased in advance, from Soper Creek Yarn, and yarn ready to use prior to class)

Regan has offered to teach Lace on September 24th (10:30 - Noon) or Cables on  October 15th (10:30 - Noon).  For those who would like to learn to spin your own yarn she will also teach you everything you need to know about using a drop spindle on October 26th  (12pm - 3 pm)  ($75 includes materials, drop spindle and fiber!) 

Tuesday's we will try a knitting clinic with Regan.  12:30 - 1:30 pm, bring your current project or start something new and Regan can get you on track.  $15 per session and there is a limit of 3 per class.

Reserve soon and pre-payment insures your place in the class.

That's the plan so far!
