Well, enrollments are picking up -- I'm afraid we'll have closed classes by the drove well before people finish picking workshops at the wonderful Third Coast Fiber Arts Festival.   So if you mean to come, be sure to register soon.  You can sign up at the last minute, but it's risky.  If a workshop fills, it's just plain too late, and I'd hate to see that happen to people.

Here is what I'm seriously pushing today:   First, the classes in beading taught by Judy Pascale are not being noticed quite enough.  She is the queen of beads -- everyone looks to Judy when the question comes to be how to include beads in knitting or crochet.  So have a look at her amazing courses.  One of them has to do with a scarf, another with a small bag (that can be made bigger, etc.), and the final one involves a darling floral vest. 

Then there are courses taught by Candace Eisner-Strick, one of the smartest and funniest people in the western world.  REALLY LOOK at the Strick-ly Shawls class.  You start with a 9-stitch tab, then construct a well-fitting shawl from any yarn, any stitch pattern, any edging -- you need to do this one if you want to wear or give away beautiful shawls.

 And then there is the whole range of stuff that might close if you're not careful -- Sarah Peasley's amazing trip through circular knitting of all kinds; Sheryl Thies' courses about Tunisian Crochet (she has published a book about it!); and so on and so forth.

Have a look -- do it soon -- and I'll see you ten days from now.  We give a free in-out pass to the parking structure when you register!    And don't miss Sally Melville's wondrous dinner lecture.
