  1. Dear Alison: I came across your website and am very interested in the classes. Specifically to start:

    I see no date on web. Is it too late to sign up. Any details welcome.


  2. Sandra,
    I guess I didn’t make it clear – I will fix it so the date is more prominent. The first class is September 28 at 6:30, then on October 12, then October 26. You can sign up for one, two or all three classes.

  3. Sandra,
    I see now you asked about the third class in the series — that one is on October 26 from 6:30-8:30. Not too late to sign up!
