Kate Atherley

We are excited that Kate Atherley (www.wisehilda.blogspot.com) will be joining us again to teach two workshops.

Kate teaches all over Southern Ontario and I highly recommend taking one of her classes. Kate taught for us in the fall and every student who left the store said they would definitely take another class with her.

Saturday April 14
