I know that it sounds bizzare but we are finding more and more women who are wanting to learn the basics that our grandmothers knew! Here in Coeur d’Alene we have a new fast growing entity that has even opened up a shop in our downtown Coeur d’Alene mall that showcases these tried and true practices. Mary Jane’s Farm is quite the phenomenon. If you want to have some fun jump in for a class in a beautiful ranch kitchen. You will enjoy canning huckleberries, jams, beans and so much more. A learning vacation encompassing cooking here in Idaho can be fun.
In addition, we you can join in on a real quilting bee where a number of local ladies continue to work on a quilt together. You will learn the various techniques along with enjoying North Idaho and Coeur d’Alene’s colorful personality. A double bonus would be visiting Idaho in early September when the canners and quilters compete at the North Idaho Fair. If you want to see the real Western US, come at that time. Contact Rhonda Sand or Linda Bruno at TMI Tours & Cruises for a unique localized visit.
