Welcome to Tuesday

For your artistic pleasure this week we have coming up:

Wednesday, March 18: The ATC swap/class with Jessica Hollowell. Bring six to eight ATC (Artist Trading Cards--playing card size) decorated in an artful manner that you will enjoy doing. The Club starts at 6:30PM. $10.

The Calligraphy Class with DeAnn Singh has been cancelled for this week and next. DeAnn is going to visit her latest grandson who is just a few weeks old. We will resume with a pot luck class on April 1.

Saturday, March 21, Wendy Poma will be doing her 4-needle book. This is such a pretty book/journal and the technique is something you can use over and over again. Wendy's class starts at 10:30, $40.

If you have any questions, please comment on the blog or email me.

Jessica Hollowell will be doing her CD cover and CD art book next Saturday and Lori Lai will be doing her Hawaiian Cards--they are amazing. Come on in and check out both classes, samples in the shop.
