The City of Alexandria and the Alexandria Health Department urges Alexandria residents, businesses and visitors to wear a mask in public indoor spaces, whether vaccinated or not. Wearing a mask protects yourself, your family and your community from the current surge of the more contagious COVID-19 delta variant.

Artistic Artifacts filmed owner in August 2021 Judy Gula and we’re inviting everyone to pay us a virtual video visit by watching her 10 minute tour of our Alexandria, VA store! Judy shows off some of the many Creative Finds for Creative Minds that are stocked for in-person shopping as well as secure online ordering](https://www.artisticartifacts.com/SFNT.html. We are thankful for the lovely compliments we’ve already received. So many have mentioned that they wished they lived close enough to us to visit, and while we can’t control geography, we hope this video gives you an idea of how we can support your fiber and mixed media needs!
Several years ago we welcomed Great Day Washington, a local morning television program to the shop. Although much has changed since then, this is still a fun look at Artistic Artifacts as you watch video of the four different demonstration segments — surface design (block, mono- and Thermofax printing), paper piecing quilt blocks, mixed media and upcycling techniques, and hand-stitching batik panels — that were produced live that morning by host Meaghan Mooney.
