December 6-8, 2019: Countryside Artisans Studio Tour (self-guided driving tour).  All member studios of the Countryside Artisans will be opening their studios to the public for tours and on-site purchases.  Heather will also be offering demonstrations of different techniques she uses to create her original pieces.  Take a day or two, pick out the studios you’d like to visit, and map a nice little road trip around the Maryland countryside!  The suggestion is that you visit no more than 5 studios each day, because you want to be able to give each one some time.  A map is available on the Countryside Artisans website (see link above).  Hours are 10am-5pm, Friday-Sunday.

December 21, 2019: Breezy Hill Knit & Crochet Club Meetup and Cookie Swap.  Crafts, friends, and more holiday cookies than you can shake a stick at!  Once more we will enjoy the tradition of a holiday cookie swap for our December meetup, and we hope you can join us at the farm from 1:00pm – 4:00pm.  Please bring 2 dozen of your favorite holiday treat and the recipe for it – and of course your project!  Crafters of all skill levels are welcome.
