Craft Party Open House

What a great time last night at the annual Craft Party Open House!  This year's donations went to Rock Creek School to bring programs to kids with special needs.  I am so happy at the wonderful turnout and generous giving that our attendees showed!
Our teachers for the evening....Stacie Spencer, Chrissy Gemmill & Courtney Prahl!  Thank you for donating your time and supplies to this event!
Yumm- Margaret always is the best host with lots of delicious snacks!

Margaret & I love this annual event.  Here we are pre party!

We were so happy to raise $900 for Rock Creek School!  The money will be put to good use and it is such a worthy cause!  As you can see, we had a lot of fun at this event too! 
 Chrissy brought in some mixed metal charms for metal stamping!  There were some fun jewelry charms made last night!

 Courtney Prahl brought in some fabulous vintage papers to create hanging birds!  These will make great ornaments and gifts!
 Stacie Spencer chose a popular craft- feather hair accessories!  As you can see, they tuned out so stylish! 

 The table was covered in beautiful feathers!

It was a wonderful night!  If you missed it, be sure to come next year!  And as always, check out our lineup of future craft parties!

Make & Take Craft Party Needle Felted Scarf

Sunday we created the perfect fall accessory!  Margaret Hluch showed us how to take a wool sweater & recycle it into a scarf! 
Once we got the scarf shape, we learned how to use wool roving to needle felt designs and patterns into our new scarf! 


 So many beautiful colors of wool to choose from!  Everyone was surprised how easy this technique was!

 Here are the beautiful results!  I love Jessica's idea to create a cowl from part of the sweater!
