Welcome to my 3rd mailing newsletter, End of November and December of 2016
I hope everyone has had a great Thanksgiving. We had a week off from braiding, but now I hope we are all excited to getting back to either starting those Christmas projects, starting a new project or just working on an existing project.

Tuesday day November 29th,1-4,Tuesday evening 6-9
December hours: Tuesday days: Dec. 6, 13th, and 20th 1-4,
Tuesday nights same dates Dec. 6, 13th and 20th 6-9
No braiding between Christmas and New Years, which is Dec, 27th

Sat all Day Braiding is Dec 10th 10-4.
No Braiding  on Fridays Dec 23rd and Dec 30th.
Either mark these days down or check this newsletter or check my calendar on my website.

I would like to get new students into our braiding group. If you can spread the word and you bring a new student to start, I will either give you a yard of wool or 3 lessons on the book for your efforts, I appreciate it so much.
Thank you all for your support in our braiding group and my braiding business.

I had an experience of visiting a retreat center in Kennebunk Maine. It is called The Franciscan Guest House. A really nice place. Every bedroom has their own TV, Bathroom, refrigerator, your  own heating adjustment control.
I was wondering if there were 8-18 people interested in getting together the first weekend of February to have a get together there for braiding or craft time.I do not want to infringe on the Alfred Retreat or the PA Valley Forge Braid in, so do not go if you think you can’t do both. The cost would be compatible, except those wanting private rooms. Double rooms are $60.00 per person each night. You can come Thursday to Sunday or Friday to Sunday. It is in the Famous Kennebunk Maine,  it would be in the heart of winter.  Email me at
Thurstons first basket
