Hello everyone!

A quick update at the beginning of this newsletter –

Check out our 2 special classes:
One is this month with Candy “Quick & Easy Christmas Cards!” The other is next month with Wayne “One Sheet Wonders!”

Also, just a reminder about the Saturday “make & take” class – please, oh please, only grab a ticket at the front door for yourself, just take one. That way there are no number mix-ups at the Art Bar and we can move right along without waiting for anyone that has not yet arrived. We want everyone to be able to join in turn, sound good? Thanks…

***Check out the September/ October “clip & save” coupon book and enjoy Art Room savings!

***Change in regular shop hours from Wednesday, Sept. 10th thru Saturday, Sept. 20th Weekday shop hours will be 11:00 a.m. till 4:00 p.m. Saturday shop hours will remain the same 10:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m.

***New class!!!
Saturday, September 20th from 11 a.m. till 1 p.m. – “Quick & Easy Christmas Cards!” with Candy! It’s that time again, Candy has scheduled her annual quick and easy Christmas card class! It’s a lot of fun, and you will be ahead of the season, which comes all too quickly, as you all know! You will create 8 (all new!) cards for only $ 20.00! Please register early, seating is limited...

***New Class!!!
Thursday, October 16th from 1 till 3:30 p.m. – One Sheet Wonders!” with Wayne! Please join Wayne at the Art Bar to create a wonderful mix of greeting cards and an adorable container to hold them all! A perfect gift! (For a friend or for yourself!) We will have a variety of papers to choose from. Class fee is $25.00 and includes all materials. Sample is at the shop now.

***Due to little to no interest in the “last Thursday of the month paper doll class” and less interest in the “last Saturday of the month birthday parties” they will be canceled for the rest of the year. Sorry, thought we would give them a try, but since they didn’t work out, they will be replaced with another idea that we have in the works! Will keep you updated, ok?

Sorry, the September card swap has been canceled, keep checking newsletter updates for upcoming monthly classes again though… 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. The card exchange and class will be on the 3rd Monday of every month (except for September) from 3:30 to 4:30 pm at “The Art Room”.

Saturdays, September 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th from 10 a.m. till noon – “Make & Take!” Come play with Bonnie at the “Art Bar” and bring home a FREE “make & take!” Candy will be here to help you create the “make & take” on Saturday, September 13th. It’s a lot of fun!

Tuesdays, September 2nd, 23rd and 30th from 1 p.m. till 2 p.m. – No Tuesday classes are scheduled for September 9th and 16th , sorry. “Tuesday Template/Technique” class with Bonnie! Come in - take an hour out of your Tuesday afternoon – we’ll be using a new template or technique on a project to add to your collection! Class fee is only $5.00. Please bring your “basic kit.” Please let us know by the Saturday before that Tuesday if you would like to join us. Please pre-register and please pre-pay. Thanks!

Sorry, the September ATC class is canceled, please come play with us at our ATC class in October! “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 – 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!

*** 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! Also, please let us know if you would like to schedule a class with her! And 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
* glue stick
***favorite double-stick 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! **(please be sure to bring these items)

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, Dianne
