We have been told, starting in January we will have to buy software to barcode customer addresses and after our problems with the post office when we mailed our last issue, we have decided to be on line only, as most other shops have opted to do. The newsletter is posted on our website along with a calendar of events and classes. You can print it or just review it at your leisure. We will take names of customers who frequently take classes and do not have a computer and we will have a few copies in the shop for them. We are so sorry that we have been driven to do this but times have changed and we all have to accept change. If you are not receiving our emails, please update your email address with us.
