Hot pattern from last LOOPERS! session: I had told the girls I'd post pics of their fabulous lilac mp3 player holder bags (one was designed for a hamster!?) I'm so proud of what they made and I've seen more than one of them out in the world sporting their creations. I happen to know of one girl who made a couple as gifts, well done!!!

January 2010 LOOPERS! is filling up fast already! I sent a flier with grades 3,4,and 5 at Patton Elementary School Wednesday. I posted to my FB page (I'm a shameless addict) and sent an email to the 'old guard' and have already have 10 enrolled. We LOVE that. Not to worry, we're already working to add an second weekly class if need be. No one gets left behind on MY watch!

A message to the home school crowd, if there's enough interest, I am more than happy to conduct a daytime LOOPERS! class specifically for you, email me for more information or to arrange that.

I've decided this session is going to be crochet. There's boys enrolled this time and I think they'd prefer it, crochet is also so much faster and I want this new group to be enthralled by the instant gratification.

I'm supplying yarn, color to be determined and hooks. Steel for the new gang and bamboo for the old guard.

I'll keep updates posted here, see you in LOOPERS! class SOON!

New LOOPERS! is set!!

Christmas Crafting is done, it's January 8th, time for Valentines! (oh heavens no, not already?!!)

The new year, new projects, new stashes of crafts, newly organized craft rooms, new ideas and best of all, the new LOOPERS! session!! Classes will start at Patton Elementary on Monday, January 25, 2010, 3-4pm (6 week session). IF you are interested in registering and don't have the form or just want more information, email me directly at and I'll hook you up. Oh, I had to! I have great new plans, great new patterns and am really looking forward to getting started again.

Rumor has it there'll be another fibre arts summer camp happening, watch this space for more information. If you would like to be on a summer camp information list, email me with "summer camp" in the subject line. I WILL be more organized and get this booked MUCH earlier this time around. Ask around, it was crazy fun last summer (shameless self promotion inserted here)
