Available class dates and times now are Tuesday, April 26 at 7 PM & Saturday, April 30 at 2 PM.  If neither of those dates work for you, I'm willing to offer the class at another date and time that does work for you if you can guarantee 4 – 6 attendees.  All classes are at my home, so if you need directions once you register then let me know!
