Our blog is “in labor,” it will soon incorporate all the info currently on our website and ultimately be a one-stop shop for Heritage on the web. It should pop out fully developed in 3 to 4 weeks. Over that time, if you visit here, you will see a work in process — and maybe a few “labor pains.” This is a very cool thing. I’m excited by the potential. By the end of the change, you should be able to register for classes via the website! We will let you know via email when the site is fully operational. Thanks to Mary Rios of www.rocketgirlsites.com for lending a hand with the change. I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Jamisen Sivak for the last several years of minding our website, including a big revision two years ago.
During this time of transition, we will keep you abreast of shop events and changes via newsletter.
For your calendar:
11th Anniversary Sale: November 18 from 6 to 10 pm; Saturday, November 19 from 10 to 4; and Sunday, November 20 from Noon to 4. Best prices are on Sunday. Click here to see a shop flier.
Sunday, December 4 from 12 to 4: Stop in and visit our “Heritage Holiday Bazaar.” Some of our favorite artists will be here demonstrating and selling their wares, including:
- Deb Harowitz with her fused glass buttons (bring your garments needing buttons to match them or place a special order)
- Jack Querio with his sexy shawl pins (you have to feel them to understand the “sexy” part) and other wood products
- Sandy Rippatoe with her hennaed items and she will also create a small work of art with henna on your foot, hand or … for a modest fee
- Mary Rios with woven items and handmade soaps
- Jacque Hodges with her handmade knitting and tote bags
- Clara Pinkham with her handwoven scarves
12/29 Chemo Cap Work Bee. Bring your caps to work on for a day of fun and giving. We will have patterns on-hand and even have two classes to help you design your very own cap. The Knit Michigan Chemo Cap Design Contest is in full swing — you could win any of several great prizes! You don’t have to be a creative genius or math whiz to make your own pattern. We will have knitting and crochet cap design classes led by Monica. The cost for the day is just $10 and we do ask that you to register in advance. Lunch on your own. 100% of the registration fee will be donated to Knit Michigan.
Mark your calendar for our Annual New Year’s Day Party. Make the shop your home away from home for the day. I will make soup and bread and you are welcome to bring something to share if you like (but absolutely no obligation!). Bring your knitting, crocheting, warped rigid heddle or other handwork and escape the football games! If you’d like to weave on one of the project on the multi-shafted looms, you will be able to do that, too (small fee for materials), but help is free on NYD.
