Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015



Each new year marks a milestone. An opportunity to take a minute and look back on a year of creative journeys, talented accomplishments and the artistic achievements we've shared together and that you've shared with me. Thank you for making 2014 a fun year of inspiration and for allowing FiberDoodles by K4TT the pleasure of providing you with inspiration and instruction.

So tonight, raise a toast to yesterday’s achievements and tomorrow’s fiber opportunities.
FDbyK4TT looks forward to providing you with even more exciting possibilities in 2015.

Happy New Year,
Katt
