It’s been just under two years since we restored the Nome Schoolhouse, a pillar of education and a wonderful gathering place for our community. Last winter, we celebrated the season of joy with our first hosting of Nome for Holidays. I’m excited to announce that the Nome Schoolhouse is hosting its second “Nome for the Holidays” and it will be bigger and better than all the fun we had last year.
We’ll have two days of various vendors at our Makers Mart, a supper, local wines, and of course, Christmas decorations everywhere. You will find our Alpacas inside the gym ready for you to pet and we may even get Santa Claus to stop in for some jolly Ho Ho Ho’s!
As the weather starts to cool off it is the perfect time to cozy up with wool and felting needles, so you’ll definitely see some new creations around the schoolhouse! Who needs store-bought garlands when you create your very own hand-felted snowmen and snowwomen, bears, gnomes, and more?
You may even enjoy looking around the Nome Schoolhouse shop and learning about what’s happening in 2023! Can you believe it is almost the new year!? I am already beginning to think about my New Year’s Resolutions – I don’t know about you, but as we get busier here at Nome and Bear Creek Felting, I would love to carve out more time for mindful activities and coming up with new felted creations for the Academy.
We’d love to have you join us this year and get immersed in our winter wonderland at Nome, better yet join us for our “We’re in the Christmas Mood” show, which will be performed in the gym at the Nome Schoolhouse on Saturday, Dec. 10th at 6:30 pm. The “We’re in the Christmas Mood” show features an 18-piece Big Band Orchestra and several vocal ensembles and solo performers throughout the afternoon. What better way to feel the Christmas spirit than music?
If you’re not able to attend in person, I welcome you to participate in spirit. My Needle Felting Academy is always open, so grab your Christmas wool, pour yourself a glass of wine or cup of cocoa, put on your favorite Christmas music, and let’s celebrate this holiday season with warm hands and happy hearts.
