Hello Knotties! I spent the good part of this afternoon working on getting the website updated and making the registration page live. If I was better at this, or had more time to do it regularly, it probably wouldn't have taken that long, but c'est la vie.
I checked the Roan Mountain State Park cabin rental page and there are still 18 cabins available for our Getaway Weekend, August 26-28. Three of those cabins are dog-friendly. I'm looking forward to going up again in August. Jay and I were there for my birthday last year in mid-August, to scout out the location, and I thought it was the perfect mix of Summer and Fall. Roan Mountain has a very similar climate to Canada. That meant nice warm days allowing for a lunch on the grill outside, and nights cool enough to light a fire in the wood stove in the cabin.
I'm putting together a list of vendors to invite, as well as the cadre of instructors interested in teaching. If you have anything you're interested in teaching or learning, please let me know via my email firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Facebook page. The class I'm most looking forward to is one on homemade salves and lotions. We all need to keep our fiber fingers soft and supple, don't we?!
Be watching your inbox in the next week or so for the formal announcement newsletter. I've decided this time to do a soft opening, like restaurants do, to make sure everything on the site works the way I meant it to. Only those true die-hard Knotties (or my guinea pigs) will know to go looking for it!
