Don’t forget, the Lee Greenwood concert is the same weekend, Saturday 8 – book your motel ASAP – or get Lee Greenwood tickets if you want to see him as well as spin!

Urgent!

From the USDA: Division of Farm Services Agency (FSA) – all livestock producers are urged to enroll in the Disaster Assistance program before October 1, 2014. This includes fiber producing livestock (you too, bunny owners!) and bees (if you have them) going back to the year 2012. You may qualify for reimbursement. The sooner your enroll, the bigger the possible reimbursement.  Go here to see what’s what: http://www.fsa.usda.gov/disaster-register.

Good News, Bad News

I am afraid that we have had to drop the Friday class, “Be More Plyable” due to the teacher having a work schedule conflict. However, the SATURDAY session of this class is still available. If you have already sent in your enrollment forms with the FRIDAY session on it, contact Lois Wissmann; she will see to it that you are either moved over to Saturday’s session, or, if enough people show interest, the teacher will hold a session on Friday evening for the same price.

It’s Ohhhhhh-fficial!

Jessie Dockin's new baby

Jessie Dockin’s new baby

We’re afraid that the needle felting class taught by Jessie Dockins has been cancelled for this year – she’s had a baby! Hopefully we will have her in 2015, and that she’ll bring the baby to show him off!

So, we’ve added a few classes, including “Spinning: From Bumps to Beehives”. Aaaand we’re still going to release the official class descriptions and enrollments as of September 1, 2014

We’re on Facebook!
