Happy Holidays from Ancient Pathways

Greetings Happy Crafters,

It's Christmas in July. Please don't whack the messenger with a wet skein!

Ancient Pathways is having a party Saturday, July 25, to help you get a start on your holiday gift-making. It's only 5 months 'til Present Day, so mark your calendar and plan to spend the day in our really cool, air conditioned store, pretending you are ready for the holidays.

Holiday events will start at 9:00am. Iced Hot Chocolate will be served and events will include two free classes to get you started, plus our usual load 'o fun. A handout with lots of free projects which are available on the internet will be given to everyone who comes in the door along with a raffle ticket to win another of our delightful Goodie Bags.

In our first free class we will make a Holiday Ornament that is like a Ship in a Bottle. All materials except knitting needles will be provided for a $5.00 materials fee. You will need to come to class with a set of US size 2 needles. There are some shop needles available to borrow; please call us to reserve a pair. The class will be from 9:00am to 10:00am.

Our second free class will teach you how to make a holiday-themed Dish or Face Cloth. The materials fee for this class is $5.00, and includes a skein of hand dyed cotton. You will need to come to class with US size 7 needles (larger or smaller if your gauge tends to run to tighter or looser). This class will run from 10:00am to 11:00am.

All the best to you and your family,

Meg Smith
