2011 Class Schedule

I've just updated the website with classes for the next several months. Things crazy quilt and things herbal. We are in the process of remodeling the building next door. The space is light and bright and perfect for classes! A new series for this year will be "The Herbalist's Table". Throughout the seasons, I'll take you into yard and garden where we will harvest plants and then come back to the kitchen and transform them into delicious dishes!

I'll also be giving classes on crazy quilting - piecing, embroidery, beadwork, etc.

On June 15, there is a free herb walk around the property - which is a certified Botanical Sanctuary. We grow hundreds of herbs, as well as fruits, berries, veggies and mushrooms. Hope you can join us!

Happy New Year!!

2010 certainly was a busy one! From our collaboration with The Fabulous Beekman Boys (making Heirloom Love Letters, Milk Shakes, Candles and a few more goodies to be introduced in 2011) to Danny's accident with the table saw, the barn fire, kids moving, finishing David Winston's 2-year Herbal Study Program (and my herbal thesis quilt), a new grandson!!, and renovating a new space for retail to open in 2011.

I'm starting an herb/plant study group called BIG - Botanical Interest Group.

Botanical Interest Group – Do you love plants, herbs especially? Would you like to get
together with like-minded folks to discuss growing and using useful plants?
Join Betty Pillsbury at Green Spiral Herbs in Huntersland on third Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and see what grows! January 19 is our first meeting.
I'm setting up the class schedule for 2011. Details posted soon. Coming up January 11 is a lecture and trunk show for the Piecemakers Quilt Guild in Middleburgh, NY.
May 2011 bring you blessings of good health, love and abundance.
