Sorry to report that due to low student registration numbers, my Eastern Tour of seatweaving and antler basket classes during August to MI, CT and ME had to be cancelled. I was so looking forward to traveling and teaching at the Rustic Furniture Gathering in Grand Junction, MI, Brookfield Craft Center, CT and Baskets of Joy, ME.
I have never been to those states and was anticipating a wonderful trip meeting new friends and seeing new places, but when class size minimums are not met, the trip becomes a financial hardship. Especially if the instructor makes her living as a teacher and doesn’t do it “just for fun.” With the high cost of gas traveling over 1,700 miles one way presents it’s own problems and flying is not any better at $500 for a round-trip ticket to Maine.
Profuse thanks go out to the establishments that worked so hard to make these classes fly, since you expended so much time and money to set up the classes and doing the advertising and promotion! I’m so glad you all were so sympathetic and understanding, maybe it will work out again sometime in the future.
