"Bird Baubles" Wine & Cheese Craft Party

Chrissy Gemmill taught a new class on Wednesday, "Bird Baubles"! It was extremely popular and we had several people on a waiting list to take this class so I am sure we will be offering it again in the future. We learned the basic jewelry making techniques of bead link wire wrapping and jump ring manipulation.After we got the basics down it was time for the fun and hard choice of designing our jewelry! With all of her yummy choices of baubles and colored stones and glass, it was hard to choose!

Here are some of the results...

This fun group of women were celebrating their birthdays! Chelsea got all of her friends the class as a gift so they could celebrate their birthdays!

"Mother's Day Needle Felted Postcard" Wine & Cheese Craft Party

Mother's are in luck this year because some of them will be getting a personalized Needle Felted Mother's Day Postcard!!! The class last night was so much fun! Margaret Hluch taught everyone how to do a photo transfer onto gauze and felt.

Then we used her beautifully dyed fleece to needle felt the postcard. Everyone was surprised at how instantaneous the results were with the needle felting.

Stitching added the final touches!

Here are our finished projects...I think they all turned out great and the moms will be proud of their creations!I think this one is particularly great- love the peace sign on dad, the halo on mom and the little horns coming out of Stacy!
