It’s been less than a year since we restored the Nome Schoolhouse, a pillar of education and a wonderful gathering place for our community. Last winter, we weren’t quite ready to host any holiday activities. But this year, we’re eager to deck the halls … and we’re going all out!
I’m excited to announce that the Nome Schoolhouse is hosting “Nome for the Holidays.” We’ll have a performance by the Maasjo Sisters, various vendors, a supper, local wines, and of course, gorgeous decorations everywhere. Now that the weather is cooler, I’ve been cozying up with my wool and felting needles, so you’ll definitely see some new creations around the schoolhouse!
You may even enjoy some whimsical fiber art we create in our Needle Felting Retreat that’s happening now! Who needs store-bought garlands when you have hand-felted snowmen and snowwomen, bears, gnomes, and more?
This is exactly how I want to celebrate the holidays after all the challenges and excitement of 2020 and 2021: heartfelt crafts, lovely music, community connection, warm hearths, and of course, delicious food.
My daughter, Elizabeth “Libbie” Perleberg, is our chef here at the Nome Schoolhouse. I may be biased, but her food is amazing — the kind that warms both your belly and your heart. We’ve explored the fiber arts together for a long time. Libbie definitely translates her talent for crafting from scratch into her home-cooked meals! The menu for our Christmas dinner is listed at the event link. I don’t know about you, but my mouth is already watering!
Here’s where you can buy tickets. I advise you not to wait too long! We’d love to have you join us on this very merry occasion.
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.
