As I sit typing up this newsletter, it is a chilly 2 degrees outside. We love Wisconsin, but we're looking forward to spring!
I am so excited and delighted to tell you all about what is happening at Susan's Fiber Shop, and some of our upcoming events.
Currently, I am hosting virtual sales 3 times a week, with an occasional pop-up show. You can like our Facebook page and watch/shop these virtual sales, 4-6 pm CST. Just search for Susan's Fiber Shop on Facebook.
Weekly, I host Teaching Tuesday, where you can learn new techniques and buy the tools to use them, Wacky Wednesday, and see new and one of a kind items, and Frenzy Friday, shop wonderful fibers for spinning and weaving. Follow along and become one of "Susan's Fiber Sharks" today by liking the facebook page and joining the "Susan's Fiber Shop Retreats" group page on facebook also.
AAAAANNNND speaking of retreats! I am so excited to have everyone together again in 2022, March 4th-6th, For Susan's Fiber Comeback Retreat!

There are just a few days left to get YOUR room at an excellent rate of $79 for the weekend.
I and the team here at Susan's have had a real blast putting this retreat together, and coming up with craft ideas, demos, shopping options, giveaways, and classes for our attendees. You don't want to miss this! Your registration is a very affordable $75 for access to it all! We hope to see you there.
