We will then glaze them and Baker Creek Ceramics will fire them and deliver them to Social Fabric where we’ll make the fabric bodies. $75 for both the Baker Creek AND Social Fabric sections of this class. This class is limited to 12 students. IF we get more, we’ll have a second Baker Creek Ceramics session on…

HOW exactly did September get here so fast?  WHAT happened to Summer?  I'm always shocked when September gets here - it's such an iconic moment in the year when you KNOW the weather's bound to change AND the holidays are just around the corner.


We've got a lot of fun classes this month.  We're trying some NEW things.  Check 'em out.

Sept 30, Friday, 12-6. Private Class.  What do YOU want to learn. Call us to schedule a class and negotiate a fee. Doesn’t have to be the entire 6 hours. 360-733-1323.

Beginning Sewing - We're changing our Beginning Sewing Class strategy.  We have SO many folks who want to take Beginning Sewing but the timing is wrong for them or the class is too long or who knows what the problem is.  HOWEVER, in order to join in the fun of the more advanced classes, you GOTTA face the fact that you HAVE to take a Beginning Sewing Class to get to the more "fun/creative" stuff.    It's like driving a car.  You don't take a cross-country road trip without doing all the hard work it takes to get your driver's license first, right?  I GUARANTEE you will have fun in our Beginning Sewing Class.  It's not to our advantage for you to have a bad time, right?  So banish those old memories of high school home ec.  This is an entirely different thing.

AND - here's the fun part.  You take a 3 1/2 hour Beginning Sewing class (for $75) and you get to choose and take one more Beginning Level class for FREE!  


For example, you sign up for Beginning Sewing (pay $75) and then you can choose ONE CLASS  from the following classes in September:

Make an Apron (Saturday, Sept 2, 3:30-5, FREE to you!)

Up-Cycled Soft Toys, (Sunday, Sept 24, 12-4, FREE to you!)

and in October - here are the options:

Sheet/Pillow Case Class, (Oct 1, 1-4, FREE to you!)

Infinity Scarf Class (Oct 8, 3:30-5, FREE to you!)

Pajama Bottom Class (Oct 15, 3-6, FREE to you!)

Simple Stuffed Animal (Oct 22, 2-5, FREE to you!)


We haven't worked up the November calendar but if this is a successful plan for us, then we'll continue this into the future.
