Gee, April is almost over and I am late getting out the newsletter. Spring is quickly BLOWING in--hee,hee. Speaking of which, besides our normal monthly classes we have some new classes blowing in to the Knit Knook!

*Sunday, April 22nd from 1-3 pm, Jennifer and Susan are offering a "Try Out Spinning" class. You will be able to draft and then use a drop spindle.
