Happenings in the House

Happening in the House
July 11 - 15
a little known secret!

So here's hoping that blogging becomes a thing of the now.  It has been a long time since I've posted anything but classes.  There are lots of things going on these days and lots of plans for the future. Read on my friends!

Open Studio Time - "the little known secret"

The tables here in the House often sit idle.  I thought I should let you in on a little secret...... You can use them most days of the week except during a class or special event. That's right...  most anytime.  The tables have always been available for you to use, I guess most people didn't know.....  Here are a few details you will need to know.

Is there a charge?  Not right now.  We may charge a small fee in the future when we are able to provide more supplies for you to use.  

Are there any supplies you can use?  Yes, right now we have a Sizzix Big Shot available for your use.  You won't have to lug your machine up here just to make die cuts.  Our Big Shot is for everyone to use.  But you will need to bring everything else you need to work on your project.  

Do you have to reserve a time?  Yes, I do need to know you are coming so I can be sure there is a cleared table available for you. Just give me a call and tell me when you expect to be here and approximately how long you expect to stay. It'll help me know how to schedule others.

How long can I stay?  You can come as early as 10:30 am.  You can work until 5 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and 3 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. You must be packed up and have your purchases paid by 5:30 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays or 3:30 on Fridays and Saturdays.  I need to be able to clean up and reset for the next day without disturbing you.

Can I bring a group?  Yes and if you are willing to share a table with someone else, we can seat at least 8 people (16 if you are willing to seat 4 at a table). I will need at least 2 weeks advance notice with the time and number of people you plan to bring so I can reserve the number of tables you need just for you.

Where will I find the schedule for Open Studio Time?   Currently I am sending out weekly emails with the schedule for the week. I will also have a the weekly schedule here on the blog. I'll probably put it on Facebook if you follow us there. And I will have a new website up and running soon with an interactive calendar page. You'll be able to enroll in Lisa's classes (enroll only) and see what is on the schedule for the month.  I will update it regularly as events are added.

I am excited to have shared the secret of Open Studio Time with you and hope you'll take advantage of it soon!

You're right ~ I had no idea about the open studio time.
Sounds like a fun way to get to art with friends.

Love what you are doing, creating a creative environment is a wonderful way to market your store and the events. Such an enjoyable atmosphere.

Hey Sherry... Hey Mary! Glad you both like the idea. It is so much fun to have a creative space to spread out in and not make a mess on your dining room table!
