Chair Caning and Antler Basket Classes–Fall 2014

A girl can change her mind, can’t she? Well, as all of you women out there know, we CAN change our minds and I’ve just done that concerning teaching and exhibiting this year! Basketweaving and seatweaving classes will be taking place again on my schedule!

I decided late in 2013 that I would not be teaching or exhibiting at all in 2014. I needed to take a sabbatical from everything to look inward and decide what I want to do with the rest of my life–family, business and spiritual.

Also wanted to repurpose some items I picked up recently, do some landscaping and painting around the house and do some DIY projects on some furniture that I found at flea markets and picked up for free.

But within the last few months the probate issue on hubby’s property is being finalized, family matters are falling into place, and my spirit is soaring; finally knowing the direction I will follow!

Chair Caning Classes & Antler Basket Classes Fall 2014

So, I’ve decided to change up the schedule a bit and teach and exhibit in the fall of 2014. Strike while the iron is hot, so to speak.
