CANCELLED – Blizzard Book Class w/ Kathy Hamre

Good day Everyone,

It is with heavy heart that we need to cancel the Blizzard book workshop this weekend in Davidson. Kathy’s father has passed away and understand that family and friends are most important at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kathy and Evanna and their family.

We will rebook for the fall.
