In the tradition of our annual S.p.R.u.N.g and Homespun & Holly events, this year we are introducing a brand new workshop with special guest designer Kathy Cardiff of The Cottage at Cardiff Farms! Our Wool N' Harvest Workshop celebrates the joy and splendor of Autumn and we can't think of anything better than surrounding yourself in a festive Autumn atmosphere, creating three fabulous handmade projects. I just happen to know that the "Mothership" is looking at some cute yet sophisticated projects to tickle your cobbler! Not only will it be completely worth it, but may I add that golden friendships and a harvest sized feast round out the day?
This one day only workshop is $125.00 per person and includes supplies to create our three secret projects. That's right...three! And the best part? You don't need to worry about bringing a thing beyond your basic sewing supplies (scissors, needles, etc.) No sewing machines are required. We've got you covered! In addition, you will receive instruction on completing the projects and a harvest sized meal from our Hostess with The Mostess...Priscilla Queen of the Dessert! Gather 'round everyone!
Personally I can't WAIT to start decorating our workshop space for fall! I'm not gonna lie...I also can't wait to see what Priscilla cooks up! I mean think about it...a fall themed menu says to me PUMPKIN PIE! I can feel my belt getting tighter but it's totally worth it! We are all dieting out here (plant based proteins only) and the other day I was seeew hungry I could have eaten a calf. I mean, if you've followed this blog since it was dirt, you know that when I'm stressed I used to gnaw on a cube of cheese. Well...that had to stop at 40.
Anyway...where the heck was I?
The "Mothership" and Christine have been working on several projects for fall, which I'm sure will be on display. Why...here's one of them now as a work in progress! No, this is not one of the projects for the worksho (that would take much longer than a day)...it's actually an upcoming project that will be available as a kit. I'll let you know when it's ready!
And then there's this lovely below which will have wool pumpkins appliqued around all of the borders (not shown).
Also in the works...kits for the Owl and the Black Cat Pinkeeps from Buttermilk Basin are returning! Seeew be on the look-out for them as they do go fast once we've got them back in stock!
If you remember the Shoppe from last year, we had quite a bit of fall decor seeew I will repeat myself when I say, I can't wait to see what we come up with for this brand new workshop! Can ya tell I'm a bit excited? Stoked? The possibilities are endless!
As I leave you today, I just want to thank those of you who support not just our Shoppe but all brick and mortar stores! Brick and mortar stores are VITAL (did you hear that...VITAL) to your local communities! Our historic community has grown over the last year as we've welcomed new shopping experiences to the area. In fact, Morrow's Flowers has recently relocated into part of our old location! It has been a great Summer here in historic West Linn, and we look forward to seeing you throughout the fall!
If you are planning to attend our inaugural Wool N' Harvest Workshop, be sure to register soon as the seats for this workshop will be more limited than our other workshops.
Be back soon! ~ Brian
