First Saturday at the Harbor House

Gene hosts a general hooking class the First Saturday of every month (except June) at the Harbor House, 819 South Harbor Blvd., in Anaheim.  The class runs from 9 AM to 2:30 PM, cost is $10.  (In the event that Gene cannot be present, Carla Fortney will teach.) Students are invited to bring what ever projects they choose or consult with Gene about special orders in advance.  On the days that Gene teaches he will also bring a store with wool, patterns, hooks and other equipment.  When noted on this schedule, Gene will do an optional “spotlight mini-class” for those students interested in learning a new technique.
