Super Tassel/Silver Making Class on 11/12/22

This class is everything! You just show up, have fun, eat, create, laugh and have fun! You bring NOTHING! We have it all ready for you! 

So….. What happens when you put a bunch of creatives' minds together?
Well, to each his own - But we have the Threader, the Beader and the Silver Maker for this class! Out of that comes this totally awesome tassel you can attach to anything! Think hand bag, drawer pull, tree ornament, tie back, on a bed side lamp, anyplace you want to add some very unique and special bling! We figure if you don't stitch but love blending colors of thread....and you don't bead but love the wonderful look of all those little glass pebbles? And maybe you are not a silver clayer - but you love bling! This is the perfect class to combine and try all three! ok! So who haven't we covered? I mean texture, color and bling!! What’s not to love! It’s really two very cool classes in one with lunch included! 

So come Join us on Nov. 12 for an all day (in store) binge! ...  11am - 4pm (?)

We will be creating this crazy amazing Tassel!( which just everyone needs in their life!) Cathy Lyon of White Lyon Needleart designs our neighbor here in sunny Florida, will take the morning to show us all the wrapping, twisting and stringing of thread and beads. We will take a lunch break to have a wonderful fresh huge tossed salad with grilled chicken, bread and a nice dessert. All homemade of course! 
Then After lunch, Michelle Arsenault, of Michelle Ink designs will present an intro to the alchemy of Precious Metal Silver clay to new comers (and encourage anyone else with clay experience) You will have a blast with her molds and textures and props to finish off your special tassel with some sparkle on top and a gleaming charm for movement.
You. Do. Not. Want. To. Miss! This! We look forward to seeing you

The tassels are beautiful even with out the silver add ones. You will be able to make many of these once you learn. Think of what a cool gift these are or added to a package instead of a bow. So many uses!
