Happy September!

I love September! There, I’ve said it. I was one of those geeky kids who couldn’t wait to get back to school. September meant new discoveries and a fresh start for a school year. It’s still like that for me – except that exploring new things now applies to beading, metalwork and anything else that catches my creative eye!

Our annual Back to Class event kicks off the month! 2018 marks the Fifth Anniversary of this popular and free event. In recognition of this milestone, every who registers for a class on September 8 – either in-store or on-line – will be in the running for a $50 Gift Certificate! Register for one class, you get one ballot; register for two classes, you get two ballots; three classes – you get the idea!

Our Fall season is also when our creative instructors debut new class projects. To kick off this month, Gillian Clarke has a new chainmaille project that takes full advantage of three colours of rings, as well as an encore class project that is perfect for chainmaille “newbies”. Christine Woollacott will kick-up your bead loom skills with a design that adds embellishment as you loom the base of your bracelet.

Here are the classes and open sessions scheduled September 1 – 10:
