More Classes

My daughter has gotten this joke going among us at home of saying “More Frozen” whenever she encounters something from the movie “Frozen” and I’m feeling the same delight to declare: “More Classes!!” I’ve expanded the number and locations of classes that I’m offering the next two months. Registration for the classes varies by location and hosting facility, but when in doubt, email me (emily@emilyspapercrafts.com) and I’ll help you navigate the registration process. If you would like a similar class but closer to your home, please let me know and we’ll see what we can work out.

Gearing up for Fall 2016

Fall and Christmas seasons are rapidly coming up. I’ve updated my shows and where you can find me this fall to meet your holiday shopping and gifting needs (https://emilyspapercrafts.com/about/shows/).

At the Markets this summer, many of you have asked about classes and parties. I’m looking into reserving a space a coffee shop and holding a class there in Nov. and again in Dec. If you’re interested, please email me using the contact form on my website. I’m also always delighted to host a private class or party that is tailored to your party needs and theme.

Featured Artist

I found out a couple of days ago that I have been chosen to be the featured artist for the Covington City Hall Gallery for the month of July! Anyone can view the artwork during the City Hall business hours. City Hall is located next to Petco in Covington and across from the Fred Meyer. I’m excited about this opportunity!

Farmers’ Market Season

It’s hard to believe I’ve already had two market days at the Issaquah Farmers’ Market (held at Pickering Barn in Issaquah, WA). I’ve added quilled jewelry this year. I need to figure out a sturdier way of balancing my hanging displays on my vintage cups and saucers–it’s my goal to have it up by this Saturday though!

I’ve added a new line of greeting cards for this market season. I’ve been having fun getting into watercolors and decided to use some of my practice sheets as the design for the cards. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying using watercolors to create backgrounds for my quilled wall hangings. The watercolor backgrounds really make the quilling come forward in the pictures. To see some examples, head over the the Nutty Squirrel in Maple Valley, WA. Otherwise, there’s a picture of the Eiffel Tower in the gallery tab.
