Virtual Student Contest

Saturday, April 3rd, Baa Baa Black Sheep . . . Have You Any Wool? Yep, that's the class I'm teaching at Bearpaws & Hollyhocks from 12:30 to 4 p.m. It's also the class I was supposed to teach in February, but then I woke up the weekend before with numb hands, and the rest is history--the class had to be postponed two months. Back then, I figured I'd be back at work and fully healed by now, but things haven't quite worked out that way. Still, with two months to prepare instead of one week, and with the help of family and friends, I'm ready to teach and raring to go!


I've designed these three little wool projects for the class. My students will get the pattern for all three but will only get the kit for one--whichever one they pick. They'll also get a couple little goodies, and I'm going to feed them salads--a pasta salad and a green salad. You see, I like to bribe them with treats, keep their hands occupied, and make sure they're full and content so they won't mind so much when I drone on and on for several hours about the wonders of wool.

Want to attend?

Okay, here's the deal. Leave a comment telling me you'd love to win some wool class stuff, and I'll draw a random winner on Sunday night--the winner will be announced on my Monday blog post. What will you win? The pattern, one of the leftover kits (I'll pick), a class handout about wool, and a treat bag. What won't you get that the other "kids" will get? Salads and the opportunity to listen to me talk for several hours. Bummer, huh? Sorry.

So, if you're interested, leave me a comment saying you want in the drawing, okay? Good luck--to both of us! I'll tell you all about the class tomorrow--assuming I survive the experience!



CONTEST CLOSED--WINNER ANNOUNCED SOON!
