A new raffle prize has been added, increasing the number of prizes for this year’s annual raffle to six. We have added a beautiful hand-hooked wool rug with eight floral designs against a cream background. This is sure to be a favorite with our raffle ticket buyers, so get your tickets early. You can buy tickets on our website at www.fletcherfarm.org.

Our online classes now include several online painting classes with Marcia Dockum and a class in Handmade Stories with Angie Follensbee-Hall. This is a hand papermaking, collage, and book-building workshop. Participants will make their own handmade papers with embossing and embedded materials. Once dry, we will paint and collage these pages with our own personal stories and narratives written, typed, or collaged from other sources. Simple bookbinding techniques will be included to create our very own completely handmade and from-scratch art. In this class, you will learn how to make your own paper and then turn that paper into a personal journal. The class will be held on three consecutive Mondays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., beginning July 13, 2020.

Finally, we will be holding a Fabric and Craft Supply sale July 25, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is the same day as the Cavendish town wide yard sale, so stop by and see us on your way to or returning from the yard sale.
