June is National DAIRY MONTH!

June is National Dairy Month.  National Dairy Month started out as National Milk Month in 1937 as a way to promote drinking milk. It was initially created to stabilize the dairy demand when production was at a surplus, but has now developed into an annual tradition that celebrates the contributions the dairy industry has made to the world. Jen Dailey created a beautiful necklace from her photo last year that was chosen to represent  June Dairy month in Wisconsin.  Congratulations!  Good luck this year!

LOOK what GRANDMA made!

Archives from my Studio:  LOOK WHAT GRANDMA MADE!   No, it wasn't cookies... a sweater, or even a gift for someone else. (As Grandma's often do...) If was a gift for herself that she created together with friends & enjoyed wearing!  I VERY much enjoyed the company of a group of seniors who visited the studio today from the Milwaukee area! They all made some beautiful pieces while they created and connected! Fantastic! I overheard a comment.. "Good thing there is not one of these places where I live.... I would be there every week!". UPDATE:  Now you can get your KnitWit...
