Wool Class Virtual Student

Okay, so in reference to yesterday's post, I admit I don't like to shave my legs much. And yes, I'm married, but he doesn't shave his either. Ever. So we're even, sort of!

Saturday is my wool class, Baa Baa Black Sheep . . . Have You Any Wool, and as I often have a "virtual student" contest in connection with my classes, I didn't want to disappoint the masses this time.

Here's a copy of the photo on the front of the pattern. Yes, Santa looks like he's been hitting the wine bottle a little too hard, but I have since dyed some lighter pink wool, and that's what's been added to the Santa kits. I also tea stained some better wool for his beard and designed the beard a little fuller--I just haven't had a chance to make up a new and improved Santa yet.


My students will have an opportunity to pick one of the three kits--pumpkins, snowman, or Santa--and assuming I still have a full selection left after the class on Saturday, the winner of the virtual student contest will also get a choice of one of these. The pattern, which will also go out to the student in the packet, contains instructions for all three.

I'm serving my "real" students baked potato soup and Apple Hill cake; unfortunately, the food is one thing my "virtual" student will not receive. Bummer, huh?!

The other thing I wanted to mention is that I have room for a couple more students in class, so if you're within driving distance of the Sacramento area and want to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon doing something fun, call Bearpaws & Hollyhocks when they open at 10 a.m. Their number is (916) 971-9392. Class starts at 1 p.m. And there's no need to bring any supplies--it will all be provided, although a pair of scissors might come in handy.

So if you're around the area, join me in class; if you're not, leave a comment telling me you'd like to be entered for a chance to win. I'll draw a winner on Sunday night to be posted on Monday's blog. Also? I might not post on Saturday night/Sunday because I expect I might be just a tad tired. Good luck on the contest and thanks for visiting!

Oh I would love to win one of those patterns! Have you ever thought of hosting an on-line class? I can't make the drive from upstate NY but I wish I could!

Oh and I don't always shave my legs either and my husband usually says that it is ok he doesn't either!

Hey Kim,

I would love to win the pattern--as usual.

If anyone is reading this besides Kim and HASN'T taken her class, I took the first class and caught the wool craze. If you are near-by, get on over and eat Kim's food.

I would love one of the kits, I have never worked with wool and would like to learn as well as have finished item for the holiday.

I sure will the food were included. I read your blog every night and then go hunting in my kitchen for something that would be as good as what you have shown. Never quite find it! LOL

You all enjoy the class and the soup and apple cake, and think of the rest of us out here who are missing out on both!

Norma said...

Kim said...

I still have not tackled wool... I would love to win so I can try it. It sounded like you are going to have a class right here and I was thinking about signing up... Your soup sounds yummy too!

QuiltSue said...

I'd love to be there, but the airfare from the UK makes it a rather expensive class! The soup sounds wonderful so I'm off to google the recipe for that.

Kim,
I would love to win one of the kits. I was lucky to take your first class and did finish the kit. I have it hanging in the living room for fall. I agree with Trish about your recipes. I would love the recipes. Your food is great and the group that comes to your classes are a lot of fun. I am looking forward to your November class.

Traveling from Oregon to CA is a bit far so, I'd sure like to win one of the patterns. Wool is my favorite thing to work with.
