Hey all. I started this note yesterday and got kicked off the computer! I will just try again. ha!

We went to Stitches South Saturday and Mike and I went back Sunday to talk to some of my reps about some neat stuff we want to do. All had a good time and I guess you saw my post that Bev Dittmer won one of the big prizes Sunday! That's great!

Art yarns was there and I talked with leslie, my rep and she is coming sometime maybe in June to do a workshop for us. They have more kits available and we are going to learn to do the process up to the washing and drying. The projects look like a lot of fun and they are really classy looking! We are going to do one of the easier ones first and then maybe have another class later in the summer. We will talk about the dates and I will get back to you.
