Soap Class

The other night I had the joy of teaching my first ever Goats Milk Soap Class. Back in July I had contacted our local Community Education program at the High School and offered to host a class. I wasn't sure just what the response would be in our little community so I set my hopes low and would have been happy with 4 students. It turned out that there was quite a bit of interest in this new found passion of mine and we had 9 ladies sign up for the class (one had to cancel at the last moment when her daughter got critically ill~ we missed you Deb). And what a great group of ladies it was! Several of them were coworkers of mine and all of them came with such excitement to learn how to make soap. We spent as much time laughing and enjoying each others fellowship as we did learning!
Several successful, beautiful batches of soap were made with only a couple of minor fights over scents:) In response to the word getting out about soap classes I have also had several other people contact me to set up private classes at The Farm and soap sales have been busy with the holidays coming up.
I could not have had such a good first night if it were not for Alexis' help. Over the past few months she has been learning the art of soap making and graced us all with her sweet, helpful self. Thanks Lex!
And to top it all off I received such a sweet Thank You note from the Community Ed director that nearly brought tears to my eyes. " Good Morning Terri, First let me tell you that you did an awesome job preparing and teaching the soap class. I do not think I have had any other instructor who came so well prepared and organized, and explained things so well. I would love to have you teach another class this spring. That would be Great! Again, thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job. Have a great day. Cindi" So it looks like I will be teaching another class in the spring. Looking forward to it!

  1. I will be making my first batch of goat milk soap this winter. Can't believe after twelve years or more of making soap I've never done it with goat milk. What was I thinking???
