Friends, Fun, and Felt: A Night Of Creating at The Art Barn

Chattin' and Craftin'
What can you really get for 15.00 dollars these days? Not much, but at The Art Barn in Rockvale, you can attend an informal arts and crafts class that includes materials. Some classes, like encaustics and silk-screening are more pricey, due to the supplies, but whatever the topic is, it is money well spent for an enjoyable evening of socializing and learning. The classes are for all skill levels. Additionally, there are classes offered for children only.
Buttons And Beads and Thread, Oh My!

So, what did we do at the felt lesson? For me this was great fun, as my mother had shown me how to sew on a button simple stitches, but I quickly forgot. Sorry mom! During the felt lesson, we used acrylic  craft felt to make our choice of project. There were bracelets, ornaments, coffee-cozies and more. I sewed, glued, embellished, drank coffee and asked for glitter; there HAS to be glitter!

Overall, this was a highly enjoyable evening with great conversation. The hostess and owner, Donna, couldn't have been more hospitable. From beginner to advanced, a great time was had by all. See the website here for The Art Barn for the schedule of activities and information. Also, you can request a class in your area of interest.
