    Dear Kate,
    I was fortunate to find your booth at the Crab Festival in Port Angeles this last fall and bought a piece from you. A friend of mine is a senior and wants to attend a Gourd Carving Workshop at the senior center in Marysville in January. Can you give me the info dates and times and the tools that will need to be purchased for her. I will probably attend with her as well. Thank you.
