    Hello Karen, I’m trying to get into your Kumomi workshop at Art Unraveled for Tuesday 8-11 as a last minute attendee. Whether or not that works out, I’d like to know about any upcoming workshops or classes you may have in AZ. I live in Tempe. Please include me in your e (or other) mail lists. Thank you.
