Hi folks! As those of you who live in the area might have already guessed, the storm that they're calling "Snowmageddon" has led to our Friday and Saturday, February 5 and 6 workshops and shows to be cancelled. However, we're on track to be in Iowa next week! Thanks to all for your concern and support - we'll see you soon!
