Need a fresh start in 2014 ?

… so did I! That is one of the reasons I moved my art studio into a new room of our home.

Welcome to my new ART STUDIO.

It is still a work in progress, but it is a lovely project to have to work on…lol.

This studio space is smaller than the last, but will be more prominent and welcoming for guests at my next OPEN HOUSE (date T.B.A.).

As mentioned in my video shown above, My lovely Grandma Fran turned a young 90 yesterday (delay in posting due to uploading glitches)! We had a wonderful celebration for her last Saturday with over 100 guests!

Time to ruffle your feathers with WORKSHOP #12 !

 WORKSHOP ‘Fit To Be Tied’ with Michelle Purcell

This class is for the inner you! Create a personalized apron that brings out your own personality. I will show you how to design without a pattern and then embellish it to accomplish a one of a kind fashion statement. Learn new shortcuts which make sewing SEW much easier.
With Aprons being all the rage, one must have one of their own! Be it retro, fun, sassy, frilly or just plain functional, Michelle will show you some tricks and guide you along on this wonderfully fun journey!   For even more fun fabric combination ideas to inspire you for this workshop, check out the Apronology magazines & Pinterest boards!
