Explore the relaxing art of needle felting in this month’s AND series. Everyone will pick between an egg or round shaped foam to work on as their base. Using a serrated needle you will design your pattern with colorful wool. Sip on warm white russians and unwind while creating fun designs which can be turned into keychains, ornaments or left as decoration. Once you try needle felting it is guaranteed to become your next hobby! Instructor: Kristyn Niemeyer. $45/person, $140/group of 4
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
