Sorry for the last minute notice….

If any of you are planning to stay for the dinner and music part after the art show (4pm) and sale at the Stuga, it’s necessary to pre-register/RSVP because there is only room for 40 people total in the hayloft.  Please go to the farm site and pre-register if you are making a day of it so LInsay can be sure there is room for all :O)  Scroll down the page to find the RSVP link:

For those who participated in the Summer Sketch Workshops please bring  drawings to the farm by September 21st. You can also bring your drawings to the first week of classes in Pound Ridge (Sept.25-28th).  There will be an envelope in the Stuga where you can put your drawings.  Linsay has kindly offered to take the drawings into her home at the end of the day for safe keeping.  Your lovely drawings will be shown during the festival and those who would like to sell their sketches please indicate the price you would like to have on your sketches.  The range of pricing is from $5.00 – $25.00, half of  the price of your drawings will go to Kitchawan Farm :O)
