Summer Ledger 2014


We are off to France this month - excited to be returning on our Chateau Getaway for the 
6th year in a row!  We will spend four weeks in the South of France exploring flea 
markets, eating our way through farmer's markets and creating some beautiful new ideas in 
our craft workshops!

We have just opened up our weeks for next summer 2015 - we are excited to host both Amy 
Butler and Wendy Addison well as a very special French General week which will 
focus on antique French textiles - how to find them, clean them and work with them!

If you would like to join us, you can reserve your spot today by signing up here:

Meanwhile, back at the ranch on Riverside Drive....French General will be open all 
summer, Tuesday through Saturdays from 12-5pm.  We will be offering a wonderful line up 
of summer workshops including flower making with Arlene Baker, doll making with Julie 
Ippoliti, and hand-sewing with Merry Cox...just to name a few of our upcoming classes.

To see a full list of summer and fall workshops visit us here:

I hope you have a cool, creative summer and learn something new!
