So many things have been happening- from birthday celebrations, to my cherished book club dinner with the ladies, to organizing our community Christmas Tea for our church, orders, rugs, wool, patterns, felting - you name it. Did I also mention decorating and visiting family??
Have you read The Personal Librarian? That was our book this month and it was a great read.
First I would like to tell you that the Get Hooked at Sea 5 teacher for the sail in 2023 has been chosen. Beth (Parris House Wool Works) and I conducted some interviews and feel like we have chosen someone who will cross over to a number of interests. And the teacher is....
Rebecca Martin of storytellerwool.com.! She will be combining the techniques of hooking and punching in her instruction bringing interesting elements into her teaching. Rebecca is a seasoned sailor and is so excited to be joining us all on August 20-24, 2023. Rebecca has taught both online and in a variety of venues, but nothing like ours. We are thrilled to have her join us!
Follow her on instagram @https://www.instagram.com/storytellerwool/ and FB @https://www.facebook.com/storytellerwools/ as well as the Schooner Riggin @https://www.instagram.com/schoonerriggin/ and https://www.facebook.com/SchoonerRiggin to learn more information about them.
They are both simply awesome.
The above image is an example of the various techniques that might be used on the sail.
If you remember, Beth and I are the organizers of 207Creatives and host this sailing adventure each summer out of Rockland, Maine. We sail aboard the J&E Schooner Riggin around Penobscot Bay. We are pampered with delicious gourmet food and have nothing to concern ourselves with other than hooking and enjoying the wonderful sea air in Maine. If you want more information you can hop over to the website @https://207creatives.com and read all about it.
Sign ups have started and we limit the number of guests to 16- so don't hesitate if you are interested. There are payment plans if that is something you might be interested in.
What a great holiday gift!
ALSO- a reminder that with any purchase from the twocatsanddoghooking.com website your name will be entered into a blind drawing for a bundle of holiday colored wool. This promotion ends DECEMBER 8, so if you want a chance to win a lovely hand dyed bundle of reds, greens and creams, don't wait- only a few days left. You could also purchase a gift certificate on the website or leave a hint for family that you might like one for yourself!
The bundle will be going out of the studio on Dec 10, 2022.
I hope that you are well on your way with winter projects and creating wonderful things whether it be food or fiber.
I think that I might try my hand, once again, at knitting this winter- but don't hold me to it.
Until next time- keep creating!
I'll have some news about a book that I have been included in...pretty humbling.
