Creative Gift Wrapping Class - join us!

Hello friends, Happy Friday! Country Mouse and I have been busy sewing and getting new items ready for the holiday season coming up. We really do not like to think about the holidays too far ahead because this means the arrival of winter and snow in MN, but we like to have goodies ready in our shop for all of you who plan ahead with your shopping :)

We also have a fun crafty announcement... Country Mouse and I are the featured artists at Design Vertigo for this month! 

Here's a little bit on how this came about...We met Amanda back in May at the Spring Soiree and adore her shop in North Saint Paul. So when she asked to feature us, we were honored! We made a special line of aprons, oven mitts, and towels for her shop, so be sure to stop in if you are local.

We also had the opportunity to decide if we would teach a class.  Country Mouse and I really gave this a lot of thought. After all, neither of us ever dreamed of adding "teacher" to our titles. Our personalities are comfortable in the sewing room, "teaching" one another but getting in front of a group, quite honestly, is a bit scary for us.

After spending time with the many creative souls at The Creative Connection Event and pitching our ideas with fellow crafters we decided we were actually excited about the opportunity and not so scared. This will be a night of bringing our crafty ideas and supplies to share with creative friends, that means you - our dear local readers =)  

 Our creative class is called Creative Gift Wrapping and you can read the full description here. It will be at Design Vertigo in North Saint Paul - Tuesday November 1 at 6pm. Basically we will bring supplies to create three different gift packages you can use for your future gifting needs.  We will use fun supplies like Japanese washi tapes, fabric, paper, ribbon, baker’s twine, and tissue. There will be snacks and lots of inspiration, we hope you'll join us!

To register, please contact Design Vertigo in North St. Paul - you can stop in or call 651.770.1901.  Let us know if you have any questions about the class, hope to see you there!
