You no doubt realized just as I did that it would be hard to get out news of the April workshops amidst the craziness that was March.
So here we are, finishing up Spring Break and the first week of April behind us. Port Angeleans may have read in the paper that the college is closing their continuing education doors for a few years while they cut back to core 'entrepreneurial' classes. So my venues may be getting a bit more varied and interesting :-) if you have a suggestion of a place that can host a workshop, feel free to let me know. I am building a list of places to call that may have rentable halls and meeting rooms.
Since this is a bit late, I'll include some May classes as well, but if more get scheduled (and there are plans for just that!) there may be another "May Workshop" email to follow. You can always keep up with upcoming workshops on my calendar as well:

I've been working through some life changes lately, and am looking for a home for my two llama boys. They are lovely fiber llamas, a rich mahogany (named Mahogany!) and nice black (Garland) halter trained and happy to nuzzle grain from your palm. I'm happy to provide more information if you might be interested. I'm also clearing out a fair bit of my tools and fiber stash, if you didn't already get a note from me about that and would like information, drop me a line and I'll email you details.
Now, if MailChimp's doing its thing, you'll see how to unsubscribe below. Otherwise, just hit reply and I'll make sure to remove you from the list if that's your request.
