Danny and I both like BIG RED BARNS and a dream is looking like it will be coming true.
For a very long time I have wanted a shop to sell my wares, supplies, and to teach handmade crafts of all kinds. For the most part I just enjoy being around folks that have a desire to make things. I have always kept busy making something even from a very young age.
So we have talked and planned and drawn sketches of plans and we have come up with a BIG RED BARN that will be here at our farm. It will have a store for me to offer my handmade goods and also, supplies of wool, punchneedles, yarns, rug hooking supplies, and much more.
There will be two porches with rocking chairs and tables to gather around for visiting and relaxing outside, then a big, bright room with plenty of workspace for quilting, rug hooking, punching, and wool applique workshops or retreats.
A place to gather around the tables inside to enjoy some good ole' home cooking and a bunkhouse built in for 16 gals to spend a night or two.
I want this to be a place that everyone that comes can enjoy a taste of the country life, make new friends, and leave feeling refreshed and wanting to return again.
We have already measured off where it will go....next is the dirt work to level everything up.
In the waiting process I am still planning on several workshops in the big gathering room we have now.
Check back soon for some upcoming workshops on Crazy Clutch, Shirred Rugs, Needle Punch, Oxford Punch, Beginning Rug Hooking and A YEAR IN STITCHES Block of the Month.
I will post the dates soon with more details.
If you are in the area we also have a Prairie Chicks day once a month.
This month we will meet Saturday, January 10th from 9:30 to late afternoon.
Just bring something to work on and I will provide the lunch....no charge just a good old fashion day of visiting and stitchin', hookin', and punchin'
