I met a wonderful artist and a new friend, Joanne Huffman, from Kalamazoo, and I can't wait for you to meet her, too. She will be teaching 8 classes (at least--may twist her arm for a few more) at Small but Mighty Arts this summer. I hope you will make her welcome and give yourself a gift of her talents!

Polymer Buttons, Pendants,
Stitch Counters and Earrings
in Production Mode.
Bring your own packs of polymer clay (I like working with Premo, but any brand will do) and we will make multitudes of buttons, stitch counters, earrings and pendants for you to store up and use now or later. These are great to have on hand for knitting and sewing projects; collages; doll making; embellishments; and gift giving. I will provide a toaster oven, clay tools, cutters and texture sheets for the class to share (it may go quicker and you can make more if you bring your own.
Class fee: $35 ($24.50 member fee)

Make a crown for your inner queen, goddess, or shaman. Crowns have long been
a symbol of excellence, magical wisdom, achievement, and authority.
In this class, you will create non traditional crowns in traditional
or funky shapes. The base of each crown is 18 gauge wire wrapped with
fabric and embellished with beads, buttons or charms. The complexity
of the design is up to each student.
For a class fee of $60 ($42-members fee), I include a kit that has a choice of
fabric, wire, fabric glue, beads and/buttons and a bead mat.
Students are welcome to bring their own fabrics or embellishments to personalize
