    As of this afternoon, we still had 14 seats available (the room is limited to 40 people). You can call the continuing ed office tomorrow if you want to make sure you can get in, mrrogers. Thanks for coming to the class!

    For some reason will not let me register on line so I will register when I get to their Sat. Hope you will still have room.

    Thanks beatkay - very sweet of you!

    longlumbee - congratulations on your second child! How fun to have a 4th of July due date. It's harder to get a refund from the community college classes so I recommend you come the day of the class and register. There should still be room and that way you don't have to worry about going through the refund process - especially since you will be so busy with your new little one. :-)

    amgnc - I will be updating the workshop schedule soon. I will have classes that are open to the public in July on July 11, July 23 and July 28. In August I have a class at the WRAL studios on the 6th and then classes on the 16th and 30th of August. Check back on my website in a couple days for the updated workshop schedule with registration information:

    thecatsmeow - I don't have any Orange Co classes scheduled right now. If you are interested in hosting one, send me an e-mail:

    Can you do one in the Orange Co. area anytime soon?

  • amgnc07 Jun 21, 2011

    can't make it this Sat. do you know when you might do another one?

  • longlumbee Jun 21, 2011

    I'm very interested in attending your workshop this Saturday. What happens if I register and pay for the class and can't attend? I'm due with our second child July 4th and we know that babies have their own agendas. I hope to see you Saturday but if not, you will know why.

    I took this class last year, and it is awesome! Faye is so clear about sharing her techniques and helping you think in a different way about shopping and saving.

    Worth twice what she charges for it, seriously!

    cdwp - I am not sure where you saw the 3:30 end time, but the sign up page and catalog indicate it is until 12:30 pm. I called the Wake Tech folks and they can't find where it is listed as ending at 3:30 either. Sorry abotu the confusion, but it is an end time of 12:30. Thanks again for your interest!
