Hello and Happy February!

Hope you're all staying warm and cozy in this chilly winter weather. We've been busy working on our new shop blog, Notebook, and putting together a full schedule of classes for next two months, including Embroidery with Cal Patch, two classes for kids, a 4-hour Bookbinding workshop with the very talented Nic Taylor of Thunderwing Press, and a reprisal of our popular Knitting 101 class.

Read all about it below...

Join us Saturday, February 13th, from 10:30-12:30, to learn the basics of embroidery with our special guest instructor
Cal Patch
. Practice your new skills on an original Valentine's Day pattern created by Cal (sneak peek above).

Cost: $40 + $5 materials fee

A 50% deposit is required to hold your place in a class. Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours prior to the class in order to receive store credit for your deposit. Give us a call or stop by the shop to reserve your spot!

About the Instructor:
Cal Patch has been a maker since she was a Girl Scout in the seventies. She sews, crochets, spins, embroiders, knits, prints, makes patterns, dyes… hence the name of her label: hodge podge. Cal has taught all of these subjects for the past ten years, and loves showing people new skills. After seventeen years of being a New York City dweller, Cal recently relocated to the Catskills where she plans to be a crafty farmer. Her first book, Design-It-Yourself Clothes: Patternmaking Simplified, is out now from Potter Craft. You can see what she’s up to at

Classes are held at Clay Wood & Cotton in Beacon, NY. More information can be found here.
