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…

***New “cubby” idea! Okay, does anyone out there have any extra art /craft /stamping supplies that they no longer use /want /need?!

We will need your items packed in baggies of sort, along with your name. We will set your price when you come in and arrange them on the shelf / shelves. October 1st will be our first day for accepting your supplies- so check out what you would like to bring in to sell, and what others have brought in for you to buy! Interested? Please ask and we will fill you in with more info! Thanks!

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 from 3:30 till 4:30 p.m. at the Art Room.

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
