Cool! Thanks, rachel! I think I'll still have it on the roster of  
things to get- maybe one male one female.
As for teaching, why not something about fabrics? I think 2 or tops 3  
hour quick lessons would be perfect- that way people who can't devote  
a whole day can make it.
When would be best? I'm thinking either a Sunday or a Thursday- on a  
thursday we could double up and have two classes going on at once.
Crutcher, thanks! Would you like to teach anything?
What days work best for folks?
Meredith
