We’ve introduced a new referral program called Fine Friends. Sign up for any one of our workshops and receive $5 in Ragfinery store credit for everyone in your party!  The only rule is that you have to pay with one transaction for the same workshop. So if you sign up and pay for yourself and two buddies, your group goes home from your class with $15 in store credit (excluding consignment items and future workshop fees).
