January is normally a quieter month here at Cynthia’s Ark. It allows me to get out and enjoy some downtime. So now it is time to get back to it. I am probably a few days late on getting back to it.

Classes restart this Friday under new times. Hopefully it works out, so I can achieve more in the afternoons after class. So please double check those regular classes you attend, I don’t want you turning up late and missing some of the action. You can check out what is on here. The other thing I need to remind everyone is Full day or multi day workshops do require a non refundable deposit to secure your spot. The key is to book early to get in to our workshops. As I only have 5-6 students at a time, you need to be quick. As I type this post out some of our Project Uninterrupted and Patchwork 101 classes are full in the first quarter of the year. Plus some of our other full day workshops are nearly full, like Dinner Plate Dahlia. Only 2 spots left one on Thursdays and one on Saturday.

Retreats are continuing this year and if you follow my Facebook page you will have seen pictures from the first two retreats of 2023. If you are interested in attending our retreats contact the shop for upcoming retreat information. I can tell you March is full at this stage but there is 4 more after that at Sew Delightful in Burra, our favourite retreat place. All have different themes.

this is from our Crimson Poppy workshop last year.

There isn’t a lot on Craft Fair wise at this stage for me in 2023 but I am participating in the Great International Craft Show with a number of craft fair specials running on our website during them. The first one starts today 26th January to 28th January and being Australia Day we are have a BBQ party. Pop over here and check out what everyone has on offer. Plus don’t forget to check out the classroom and attend a few classes over the three days. They are free during the show, though you can subscribe and have access to the whole library of classes whenever you want.

The Shop goes back to regular shop hours for Fridays, Saturday and Sundays. Thursday will be back the second week of February. There is loads of new stock ordered for this year and I have some ready to unpack to restock shelves. But of course you can shop online at any time. I am hoping to spend more time on the website with more content and more products during 2023.

Keep you eyes open for plenty more updates on what is happening at Cynthia’s Ark.
