Hello everyone!

*** New Class!
Wednesday, June 18th from 10 a.m. till noon – or
Tuesday, June 24th from 5:30 till 7:30 p.m. –

“Creativity Class!” with Sharon! Retired teacher and lifelong crafter, Sharon Hollifield from Hayesville, will present an interactive session on Creativity, Innovation and Inspiration. Sharon taught Home Economics, having sewn most of her life and dabbled in other needle arts as well as some woodworking and most recently kaleidoscope building. She uses scrapbook paper, graphics, and other embellishments to create small mixed media items. A large part of the class will focus on where and how we can find and capitalize on creative ideas for our lives whether in an art form or other areas.

For an introductory ice breaker, class participants should come prepared to share answers to the following: 1. Share 3 preparations or approaches that help you be creative when you need an idea. 2. What have been the biggest motivations for you to be creative in your life? (money or job security,competition, solution to a problem, artistic outlet, other) 3. Name 10 items that can be sat upon but are not intended for a chair. Example - a 5 gallon bucket turned upside down. This is going to be a wonderful, fun and exciting class! Sample should be here on or about Friday, June 13th, so stop by and check it out! Class fee is $20.00. Kit fee is $5.00.

***New Class!
Thursday, July 17th from 1 till 3 p.m. – “Polymer Clay Steampunk Fish Necklace!” with Gail! Oh, wow, this fish is too cool! Please stop by and take a look, how very fun! (I can’t wait!) Class fee and kit fee combined is $35.00.

***New “Swap!” Art Room Card Swap!
A Card Swap is where the participants each sign up for a specific item to make. Then you make a duplicate of that same item equal to the number of participants signed up for the swap. On the due date you have a Swap Exchange and a class with a “make and take” card at “The Art Room”. This class will have a $5.00 class fee. Each participant will get one card from each person in the swap, getting a total amount of cards equal to the number of participants in the swap to take home, along with the make and take card from the Swap Exchange Class. Our First Card Swap is available for sign up NOW! The card exchange and class will be on Monday, June 23 from 3 to 4 pm at “The Art Room”. Spots open for this swap:
Male Birthday
Female Birthday
Thinking of You
Thank You
Come by and join us!

Starting January 2014, we will have monthly parties on the last Saturday of each month to celebrate all of our friends’ birthdays that month! We will have a cake and ice cream and snacks! (Please check our calendar sheet list each month and bring birthday cards for our wonderful birthday friends, if you would like!)

Saturday, June 14th, 21st and 28th from 10 a.m. till noon – “Make & Take!” Come play with Bonnie at the “Art Bar” and bring home a FREE “make & take!” It’s lots of fun!

Thursday, June 12th from 1 p.m. till 2 p.m. – “ATCs!” with Bonnie! Want to learn more about “artist trading cards?” Then this is the class for you! Remember to bring your “basic kit.” Class fee is $5.00. Please pre-register and pre-pay. If you are a member of our new ATC group - we have decided that the only rules are that our ATCs are due by the last day of each month and that we will have a theme, but if you would like to do your own personal theme, that would be fine, no problem! For those of you that want to have a group theme – June: Summer!
July: 4th of July!
August: Vacation!
September: Fall!
October: Harvest!
November: Thanksgiving!
December: Holidays!
We have 10 wonderful ladies in the group, so make ten ATCs. You are welcome to put a box in the closet at the Art Room to pick up and drop off your artist trading cards. This is fun!

Thursday, June 26th from 1 p.m. till 2 p.m. – “Paper Dolls!” with Bonnie is the theme for our 2014 monthly class! I think it will be fun! Have any of us really ever outgrown paper dolls? Ha! I think not! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready for my second childhood. We will hold a paperdoll class the last Thursday of every month. (Exceptions are November and December, when it will be the first Thursday of the month because of the holidays.) Class fee is $5.00. Please pre-register and pre pay.

*** Shop our “Art to Wear!” cubby where we are carrying vintage, retro, altered and upcycled creations by Marcella! You never know what you will find and Marcella will be bringing in new things every week – clothing, hats, purses, jewelry, home goods, TOO much fun! And all one-of-a-kind! Please come see what she has!

*** Don’t forget! Iris is our wonderful “beaded jewelry” instructor who also does jewelry repair. Let us know if you need her help! Watch for classes coming up with Iris in the near future!

*** Remember to bring in your punch card when shopping– you get a “punch” for every $5.00 spent (does not include tax, classes, consignment or sale merchandise) When you fill up the card, you will receive $15.00 off your next purchase. (Sorry, we will no longer be doing monthly drawings.)

***Please remember to pre-register and pre-pay for all classes at least one week in advance. This gives our instructors time to plan and organize your class kits. All classes may be paid for by cash or check, check must be made out to the instructor. No class fee payments by charge cards, sorry…

*** Important! Please bring your “basic class kit” to any classes you might attend. Please bring only these items, space is limited at the “Art Bar” to spread out too much, sorry. Thanks! This consists of:
*scissors/ detail scissors
* gluestick
*favorite tape adhesive
*bone folder
*personal cutter/scorer
*rubber brayer
*black permanent ink pad
* Tim Holtz distress inks – black soot and vintage photo *crafting apron or old shirt so we can get messy! If you do not have everything, you may certainly borrow one of ours or purchase it here at the shop. (You do NOT need to bring your kit to any of the FREE “make & takes!”)

We’d love for you to stop by and say “hi” whenever you’re in town… Thanks so much, once again, Dianne
