Autumn Colours and Classes

By now you've noticed the days getting longer and the nights are nice and cool. Yes, Fall is upon in all its glory and colour! Have you also noticed that Santa's helpers are starting to decorate some of the stores? (No, come back and finish reading!!)

Now is the time to start some of your holiday projects to finish in time for gift-giving! And what better time to learn a new technique to create beautiful gifts for your family members and friends - and yourself!

We've had a lot of inquiries about photographing jewellery and we're proud to announce that Jules Oille, a professional photographer who specializes in product photography, is teaching three introductory classes on Saturday, October 26. He will discuss the elements of taking good photos and what you can do to create the best possible photographs without spending a huge amount of money. Malliga Nathan, whom many of you know from the store, is sharing how she uses resin and mica powder to create stunning cabachons that you can use in bead embroidery or set into pendants. Catherine Winter is repeating How to to Start and Run a Successful Microbusiness as well as holding How to have a Successful Craft Show. We also welcome wire artist Marg Hughes!
