I guess Susan was right! She "gently" reminded" me that it was time to do more on my blog. Yes, she was right but the words were just not flowing. OK, OK I will make myself write. Once I sit down and do it I am fine with it. But the whole thing with "strangers" reading it is very scary to me. So, now you all know my insecurities about writing. Sad but true. I will try and live up to my own expectations.

We will be closed on Thanksgiving (Nov23) but we will be open for business on Friday, Nov 24th at 10am and again on Sat. Nov 25th and again on Sunday, Nov 26th from 1pm till 4pm.

As we look forward to 2007 our plans are to take Random Arts on the road starting with the Myrtle Beach Quilting Party in January. In February we will be taking our store to the Creative Palette in St. Marys, Georgia. The Charlotte Quilt Guild host their annual quilt show in March at the Latin School and we will be there selling our assorted goods. In April we head to Chicago for Quilt Fest and we are very anxious to get back to our home town and enjoy some of great food that we sorely miss. May leads us to to ART and Soul in Hampton, Va. Go to their web site and register now for some of the best workshops with the best teachers in the country. We will be there for the weekend bringing our shop to all of you and maybe taking a few classes as well.
After Art and Soul, Michael DeMeng returns to Saluda to jump start his new book on Thursday, May 10th and 2 full days of workshops on May 11th and 12th. Michael is an assemblage artist from Missoula, Montana and he had such a great time in Saluda this past June that he chose to come back again in '07. On March 31st we will host
Janet Lasher, surface design artist from Charlote, NC. Please go to her web site and check it and email us to sign up.
