Welcome a new instructor to Chestnut Bay

We have FIVE classes on the calendar with our new friend and teacher, Michelle Coon. She’s still teaching at Café Sewciety, but since they are closing up shop very soon, we have benefited because Michelle is willing to come all the way to Caledonia to teach at CBQ. I’m very excited to share the photos of projects she’ll be teaching, and have already started ordering supplies for all of them :O

Something very unique for Michelle as an instructor? She tells me that in her classes, you will walk away with a FINISHED project, no UFOs to add to your piles at home.

Check the calendar for the schedule on these great projects – and be sure to stop in the shop to see the samples in person.  The photos do not do them justice.
