Holiday Hours

The SweetGeorgia team will be taking a rest this holiday season and the studio will be closed from December 25 to January 3. During this time, order shipping or pick-ups will not be available, but the SweetGeorgia website and online shop will remain open for placing orders. (Orders placed during this time will be processed and shipped when we return to the studio Monday, January 4.)

The School of SweetGeorgia site is always open for access to your fibre-arts courses, tutorials and community chat forums! We’ll be checking in on messages throughout the holidays, but our apologies if messages might be a bit delayed with getting back to you.

Thank you so much for your kind support and understanding during this holiday break!
