Happy Holidays from Red Yarn Productions! I hope you and your families are feeling happy and grounded as we enter this busy season. With Thanksgiving and winter break coming up, Red Yarn's regular shows will be more sporadic. Please take a look at the SHOW SCHEDULE below so you don't go to see Red and the critters on a day they're not performing. Please join me at the first ever Family Jam event at Friendly House on the evening of Friday, Nov. 30. I'm offering several new AFTERSCHOOL CLASSES starting in January. Look at the info below and consider if one of my classes would be a good fit for a child in your life.
And if you want to give your children a little piece of Red Yarn for the holidays, I'll be selling Red Yarn Make-Your-Own-Sock-Puppet Kits at shows starting in December. I can also build a limited number of custom puppets on commission. Email for more details.

Red Yarn Productions andFriendly Houseare excited to present the first of its kind FAMILY JAM on Friday, November 30, from 6:30-8:00pm at 1737 NW 26th Ave. Children and parents/caregivers are invited to bring acoustic instruments--guitars, ukeleles, percussion, etc.--to participate in a joyous, raucous, all-ages jam session. Musician and teaching artist Andy Furgeson will lead the group in simple jams, engaging beginners and more experienced players alike. We'll warm up on familiar songs and end the session by writing an original song as a group. So dust off that guitar or tambourine and get ready to rock, family style! Friendly House will have some instruments on hand for all to use. Light dinner will be provided at this free, inclusive event. Thank you Neighbors Meeting Neighbors for funding!
We're still finalizing details for most of these classes, so please understand if they change slightly. All classes will be fee-based, with rates determined by the specific programs. Registration is not yet open for any of these classes, but let me know if you're interested and I'll keep you posted.
