Dust off those sewing machines!!  Following a summer full of activities, I’m putting the finishing touches on an exciting new workshop for Fall 2014, SEW BASIC.  It’s for all of you who are true beginners at sewing, and are ready to learn your machine, as well as the basics for creating your own African Accents! Register today! Then you’ll be able to take full advantage of the CE calendar!  If you already sew, share this with your jealous friends ; )

NaturalPin-SharpieNew to the CE Shop are our “Natural since…” pins, celebrating natural hair with a gloriously afro’ed Betty Boop!  Just write in the year you “went natural” with a Sharpie. If you’re a natural hair enthusiast, pick up your pin today (and a few for your Natural friends, too).  Order online, or get yours at the Connecticut Natural Hair Expo – we’ll have headwraps and more there, too…
