This time of year everyone is focused on finishing gift projects, making cookies and decorating for the holidays!  We leave our classroom space open for customers use anytime we are open so you can get down to business and crank out some great gifts!  But like you we are looking ahead to what’s in store for 2016!  Here’s a peek at some great new classes happening in January.  Might be a fun idea to ask for (or give) a gift certificate for one (or both of these!)  Our full 2016 class list will post soon…looking for a specific class?  LET US KNOW!  We love to schedule classes we know people are looking forward to!
