July update from THE HEN HOUSE of Charlotte…..

If you plan to visit us on July 11th approx. 10:00 – 11:00 there will be a couple of street closings downtown due to a Military funeral procession. We invite you to come early to join others as we line the streets in his honor and in support of his family.

We have a few classes on the schedule…

*Learn basic quilt piecing. Please call the shop to sign up & for details.

*Beginning Inkle Weaving – September 19th 10 -12 The small loom with the funny name is great for weaving belts, guitar straps, handles for tote bags, hatbands – even jewelry and wall hangings. Sewing bands together opens up still more possibilities. This beginning workshop covers selecting yarns; selecting, warping and weaving on an inkle loom; books; and project possibilities. A floor model-type inkle loom and yarn will be provided.
Participants should bring with them: scissors capable of cutting yarn and note-taking materials.
*Block of the Month kits are available for pick up
