Im interested in signing up but I have a question.

Approximately how much does a bar of soap weigh? Im trying to figure out my budget for this class and I know i'd like to send the soaps i've made to family and friends. I want to ensure I have enough money to buy my bars of soap after I have made them!


Ooh I can't believe I forgot to say! A typical bar of soap would probably be around 4 ounces, but we're going to be making 6 ounce bars! Such a good deal!

lol. I thought that they would be a few pounds each! Not that I have any idea how much that is...
how many ounces in a pound? Would converting to Kgs cost me more?

We're a no 'poo and no soap household.  I'm wondering if it would be okay to make vinegar in class instead?

I'm planning on buying a sheep for the fair isle knitting class.  Any chance I can use sheep milk for my soap?

Wow! Even including the airfare from Canada to Nebraska this is a steal of a deal!
One question, though. Can I bring my own goat? He gets pretty angry when I don't include him on the soap making and seriously, who needs an angry goat on their hands. I have enough trouble with the 4 kids I have.

Now that I think about it, I should probably double check the airfare for the goat.

I've always wanted to learn how to milk a goat. I think I will be joining this class simply for that! Who cares about the actual making of the soap part... I buy my soap at the store and they have lots of pretty and popular scents available there!

I'm glad you specify the mold dimensions, I'm always so worried my soap will be the wrong size.  How embarrassing!

Why is this class cheaper than the rest? It is the best one so far...

I think it's a trick!  You get what you pay for, after all.

Now now, just because your class is overpriced doesn't mean you need to criticize other classes!
