Happy Independence Day!

It is the middle of July, and most of us are not thinking of cuddling under a warm quilt. But, Christmas will be here before you know it, so you may want to start thinking of ways you can create those quick and easy gifts! Take a look at our class list for some fun ideas. We are also hosting a Christmas in July event at our Valleydale location to get those creative juices flowing! We'll be introducing some of the ideas we will be teaching in August and September, so be sure to drop by and give us some feedback on other things you like to see.  Are you closer to Trussville?  We'll be doing the same thing next month of course!
