September/October Class Schedule

3D ornaments

Sorry for the delay in posting, back to school & back to dance makes for a busy couple of weeks. When you come into the store next please notice on the front wall of the store we have project samples as well. We have traded the back wall space for the front in hopes to drive more business to the classroom. Also unless you are taking the class please do not take photo's of my work for you to figure out how to make it on your own. I am sorry if this sounds harsh, but I spend alot of my time and my money to bring you these projects and teaching these classes is how I make my living to help support my family.

My 2 Newest Crochet Wreaths


I am having alot of fun making these. The wreath is made by single crocheting a narrow scarf and wrapping it around a 12" foam wreath. The owl pattern came from http://mojimojidesign.com/nesting-rainbow-owls/ and the turkey pattern from http://www.petalstopicots.com/2013/11/thanksgiving-turkey-crochet-pattern/

Learn to make your own "Fancy Cut Mats"


 This is also a September class. I love the look of these kinds of mats when I go to scrap conventions. They look laser cut and layered. They usually charge $5.00-$9.00 each mat. Well with the right tools you can make your own pretty easily. I had a blast making them.
