From Artistic Artifacts and Batik Tambal owner Judy Gula: “Happy Holidays! It’s thankfully time to enjoy family and friends. I find that with the demands of owning a business, I often forget to take care of my soul, and creativity, in favor of paperwork — a bad choice if you ask me! During the holidays I am forced to stop and think about what is really important. For me, what’s important are my family and friends, many of who are loyal customers! Artistic Artifacts is about community, encouragement and support.”

As a thank you to our customers and the readers of these enewsletters and blog, Judy is gifting you with free downloads of beautiful imagery from her collection: vintage cigarette silks! Download your images »

Last Class of 2013 — Great Handmade Gift!

We still have space available in our last class of the year: Altered Keys with Leslie Brier on Sunday, December 8. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn some new techniques as you create beautiful pieces of jewelry that could make a unique gift for someone special — or yourself! All supplies provided!

We will begin again in January with a full slate of classes, including a newly scheduled Beginning Sewing with Lynda Poole Prioleau (3 sessions, Sunday afternoons). This is the “learn to sew” class we’ve had multiple requests for, and is suitable for all ages!
