Helper wanted for Spring Yarn School

If you’re cash poor but time rich and you want to come to Yarn School this spring, we still have an opening for the Before/After helper. This helper arrives a few days early and leaves a day late for their helping duties, but during Yarn School they’re just like any other student. And you save $200! Yippee!

Details here.

Beer School rescheduled for Fall

I swear (hic) I haven’t been getting into the homebrew (hic) whilst scheduling, but…

We’ve had to delay Beer School until fall. It will held between mid October and early November, dates TBA soon.

Deposits have been refunded and we’ll send out a notice to the mailing list when we have the new details. Thanks for your patience as we work out the bugs on our new workshop rollout!

Cheese School inspiration

Last night, I finished my last loose end from a lovely Cheese School, waxing a couple of farmhouse cheddars we smoked Sunday evening. I decided to relocate my cheese cave (read: dorm fridge turned all the way down) and discovered a cheddar from last year’s Cheese School!  There was a little hole in the wax, so I trimmed and rewaxed it, and took the opportunity to sample a bit. Although I’ve been incredibly lazy in tending it (witnessed by my surprise at its very existence), it was delicious! Hooray cheese!

I’m determined that next year’s Überlist will include trying my hand at a fancy new cheese, either a blue, an alpine, or a mold-ripened. In the meantime, I’m going to take advantage of the dreamy local milk this summer and practice my basic skills. If all goes well, maybe next year I’ll have TWO dorm fridges in the pantry….
