Here is the very talented, award-winning and lovely, Marissa Sweet. Now we can add television star to her growing list of accolades! We are excited that she is coming to our "Little Shop On The Corner" to teach another class with a new piece.

Yes - one of them is me! Join us for this fun day. Call the store at 613-546-7967 to reserve. Registration fee is $155.00 and includes lunch from a local restaurant.
