WINTER IS COMING AND PIE CAMP REGISTRATION IS ABOUT TO OPEN!
The temperatures have dropped at night, and each morning I awake to white frost covering the roof and hear its slight crunch as I walk carefully out on to the deck, and down the steps to the woodshed to bring in armfuls of wood to keep the house warm. The stove has been going night and day to keep the chill out. Mr Fez is enjoying his favorite spot in front of it, and when he gets too warm he heads over to Gretapie’s bed and curls up. She doesn’t seem to mind too much, especially when I pat the spot on the couch that is waiting for her right next to me. Yes, I know. I do spoil my four-legged family…but they are so worth it.
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and that all your crusts were flakey and light. I joined family and friends that I have known for over thirty years at a Thanksgiving day potluck that has been going on longer that that!
I am excited to share with you the dates for winter and spring events at Art of the Pie. My son Duncan will be taking over the Art of the Pie Day Camp Workshops in 2019, as I am writing a third book, with deadlines already presenting themselves. Duncan makes great pies and is a natural teacher. I will continue to lead the 4-Day Art of the Pie Camps. Now read on for more big news about the 4-Day Art of the Pie Camps…
LODGING AND MEALS
I’ve been looking for the right place to provide lodging for pie campers who come to the 4-Day Art of the Pie Camps in Port Angeles, WA and after months of looking I have found it. The gracious two story house sits on a bluff above the boat harbor, has beautifully appointed bedrooms, a very comfortable gathering area with stunning views of both the water and the Olympic mountains, and the best part is that it is just a three minute walk to Pie Cottage where all our baking sessions will take place. Plus all meals and 3 nights of lodging are included for your 4-Day Art of the Pie Camp, too. You’ll find the full descriptions of what is included here. All you need to do is sign up, bring a smile, and be ready to roll! It’s a pie-fect holiday gift for a pie-maker, too.
