This years Very Open House at Equinox Studios was amazing and we all had a tremendous time. A big thank you to the bands, Carrion Crows and The Bog Trotter and to my apprentice, Makena Henriksen, for helping make the event all that it could be. Thank you to everyone who purchased a raffle ticket for the 4 hour private lesson. We drew a name at 10 p.m. and the winner is Ben P. The profits made from the sale went to pay a volunteer, one of my amazing students from Evergreen, Josh - you may have talked to him at the door, so thank you Josh as well! Thank you Jacob Borkowski for adding your beautiful woodwork and knot wear, Lisa Erickson and friends for adding a lovely touch to the back room, Keith Leggett from 2K metalworks who shares space with us and my wonderful studio mate, Jon, who is ever patient, gracious and helpful. A big GIGANTIC thank you to everyone at Equinox Studios, especially Sam and Mark, you guys continue to amaze and astound me with all that you are capable of pulling off, and always with a smile no less! THANK YOU!!! I am truly grateful for all of the love and support and hope to see you all again before next year!!
