Changes at The Fiber Closet

Soon you will be seeing more of me at The Fiber Closet. Starting February 15th, I will be full-time in the shop. Shop hours will remain the same--Monday-Saturday, 10 am-5 pm. All groups will remain on the same schedule.

Cathy and Barbara have been a big help to me in The Fiber Closet and have been greatly appreciated. Plans are that they will remain involved in teaching and demonstrating in the shop. They just won't be employees.

A lot of things went into this tough decision--insurance requirements, payroll expenses, etc.
