Our WORLD FAMOUS Clam Chowder and Pie Lunch is part of the fun.
Please braze our snowy streets and stop by and say hello.
MERRY CHRISTMAS ! !
Great way to jump-start your creativity in the new year!
Check out our cookbook “Recipes for Disasters”. While you’re getting prepared for a disaster, why not stock up on emergency food supplies as well? You’ll be ready with some creative ideas for meals, just in case.

Leading this celebration are two inspirational weavers of art and magic.
Iris Sullivan Daire of Dreambird Studios in Astoria
Adria Badagnani of Art & Channel in Manzanita.
Iris begins the day by leading a Solstice natural dye class using the stored sunlight of dried summer flowers to infuse bright golden rays onto cotton cloth.
If you have never tried your hand at turning garden flowers to fabric pigment you will be delighted to learn the magic of this process! These golden dyed cloths can then be stitched into gift bags, altar cloths or bandanas to keep or give as gifts.
Following your natural dye class you are invited to bask in the luxurious warmth of our wood fired sauna. Perfect medicine for cold winter days- our riverfront sauna experience will also include a kelp mineral face mask and cold plunge (optional) to replenish dry winter skin and stimulate your immune and lymphatic system.
End your day of celebration with a Winter Solstice ritual led by Adria.
In circle we will first honor the darkness and what lies in the unknown before welcoming the light back with candle magic. With a poetic invocation of the elements, our sacred circle will open to create intentions, receive the wisdom of the darkness, and bring light into the New Year.
Sweet elemental surprises & gifts await each participant in this circle!
Our farm blended teas and snacks will be available for you to enjoy throughout the day!
There are only 7 spaces remaining for this retreat. Use the link below to reserve your spot today.
Festive Winter Treasures
Current registered participants can view prior recorded demonstrations and Zoom sessions at Hoff-Online
Celebrate winter by creating a festive botanical drawing taking inspiration from winter fruit, foliage, or winter branches. You may work in your sketchbook, paper of your choice, or perhaps create a winter-themed holiday card. We will look at creative and festive ways to arrange your winter treasures. The workshop will include a presentation of Dorota’s botanical drawings of seasonal plants, step-by-step examples, a demonstration of how to approach drawing from observation and various colored pencils techniques, and a time to draw together. Dorota plans to include how you can turn your botanical drawings into greeting cards. Although drawing in the realistic form will be the focus, individual styles will be encouraged and celebrated.

“We want to be a part of the big holiday shopping weekend” said organizer and local tea maker Ginger Edwards of North Fork 53 Communitea. “Most of us work from our farms or home studios so it’s not as easy for people to find us or the things we make in shops.”
On Saturday shoppers will find everything from hand thrown pottery by Nehalem based Unearth Studio to small batch canned pickles and jams from Gingifer’s Jams to naturally dyed indigo scarves from DreamBird Studios in Astoria. Other goods include Stained glass art, crystal jewelry, tea and cocoas, kelp clay body products, gem essence sprays and poetry books, stationary and cards and much much more!

Manzanita OR: In celebration of Small Business Saturday (aka Support Local Saturday) 15 Oregon coast makers have organized a Pop Up Gift Fair in downtown Manzanita on November 26th. “We wanted to be a part of the big holiday shopping weekend” said organizer and local tea maker Ginger Edwards of North Fork 53 Communitea. “Most of us work from our farms or home studios so it’s not as easy for people to find us or the things we make after the summer farmers markets end”.
Shoppers will find everything from hand thrown pottery from Unearth Studio of Nehalem to small batch canned pickles and pepper infused jams from Gingifer’s Jams to naturally dyed indigo scarves from DreamBird Studios in Astoria. Other goods include Stained glass art, crystal jewelry, tea and cocoas, kelp clay body products, gem essence sprays and poetry books, stationary and cards and much much more.
We’re seeking a few more artists and crafters for our upcoming Holiday Bazaar. (See poster for dates and details.)
We’re especially looking to add some folks who might offer something like… tea/coffee/edible things… natural cleaners would also be a cool addition.
But really, we’re all ears–let us know what you might like to sell/exhibit, and we’ll see if it’s a fit.
Just so you know: artists/exhibitors do not need to be present at the Bazaar. Simply drop off your work and we handle all sales. (You keep 75% of the proceeds; there’s no cost/risk to exhibiting.)
If you have any questions, let us know. Otherwise, share with your artist/crafter friends!
