EVENTS at the SHELDON STORE

See our calendar here

Below are events we hosted before Covid-19. We hope to offer them again in the future.


Souper Saturdays

Saturdays 12:20 - 2:00 pm

The Sheldon Store in Rupert is now offering Souper Saturdays for the winter. Beginning on Saturday, January 18, we’ll be serving a different homemade soup each week from 12:30 – 2:00 pm, following our usual coffee hours, which are 9:00 – 12:00. Of course, you are welcome to stay through the 12 – 12:30 break while we transition from our breakfast offerings. Soup is served with Rupert Rising bread. Donations are appreciated.

Note: This is NOT a class for the computerized sewing machine. The classes will run for 4 weeks building upon the previous lesson and culminating in a finished piece.

Elizabeth Winters is an experienced seamstress, costume designer, and teacher, who enjoys sharing her knowledge, skill, and passion for sewing with others.

Sewing Class

Wednesdays, 2:00- 4:00 pm

Beginning February 5, 2020

This is an introduction to understanding your sewing machine, whether you are a beginner or would like a refresher on skills you may not have used for some time. Join Elizabeth as she guides participants through the mechanisms of the sewing machine, how to read a pattern, tools, basic sewing techniques and a simple project. It is best to bring your own sewing machine to familiarize yourself with it, but having a sewing machine is not required, as there will be several available if needed.  This class runs for four Wednesdays, the last class being on February 26.

Thursday, February 13, 6:00 - 8:00 pm

Come join us in creating a beautiful Mandala Stone. Gabrielle Hayward, a certified art therapist, leads you through this technique of creating a beautiful Heart Mandala while practicing patience and oneness with the universe. If you are in need of creativity, self-care, and connecting with community, this workshop will be the perfect thing. Chocolates, light snacks, materials, music, and a relaxing environment are included. Please sign up in advance, as space is limited.

Yoga with Brooke Hughes-Muse, RYT

Wednesdays  9am - 10am

Fridays from 8am - 9am

Join Brooke Hughes-Muse, RYT, for a flow yoga class that is great for a beginner, yet is suitable for a long-time practitioner as well. We’ll start with centering, breathing, and intention setting before diving into sun salutations and flow. We’ll return to center as we come to balance and then return to the floor for seated and reclined poses, ending in a quiet time of rest. If you’ve never taken a class with Brooke before, now is the time, because your first class is free!

*Class will take place on the 2nd floor - please bring your yoga mat*
