It’s been a month since our last post. A month that seems such a long time ago now, even as the news and circumstances seem to speed up more each day.
We are now taking turns coming in to the office, checking phone messages and emails, in line with the latest Wisconsin guidelines.
Our first class of the season is set to begin on June 1. At this point, we plan to continue with the schedule as it stands. Of course, if there are any changes, we will let you know right away and as always, if Sievers were to cancel a class, students receive a full refund of all fees paid.
We’ve been receiving new things for the shop including yarns, books and beautiful handmade items by our students and teachers. The shop generally opens on a daily basis starting the third week of May. We will update you if our opening date is delayed.
Last week, two of the old windows in the shop, facing the Sophie Studio, were replaced with new ones, allowing for fresh breezes or if need be, air conditioning.
Those fresh breezes are already in place, chilled by the ice still remaining around Washington Island. These views, taken the same morning, almost around the corner from each other, probably look quite different today as the ice continues to move and change. One sign of a new season coming our way.
Sandhill cranes, Robins and Red-Winged Blackbirds have returned. We’re waiting for your return, too! As Ann says at class farewells, “…we want you to stay healthy and be safe…”. A round of hugs goes out to you today from each of us! Ann, Cindra and Carolyn
