If you’re still looking for an idea for Christmas gifts, have you considered a Gift Certificate? This could be for the store purchases or even for Classes. Wouldn’t that be a great idea for someone that has “everything”? 

For Shoppers:

Several new artists and crafters have added their creations to our expanding inventory beginning in spring, so here is a brief introduction to them.

Many of you know Terry Ashburn from his many activities here in Crossville. You may not realize that he is also a very talented photographer. We are so proud to add his local photography to our offerings. These lovely detailed photos are matted for you and ready to frame. Look here

Barb Yoakum has added some wonderful photography of her home and surrounding area here in East Tennessee. You should see her pictures of eagles. Her photos are in the form of art squares along with a gorgeous book. Look here

If you have even walked by the store, you have probably noticed the wonderful wood crafted boxes, serving trays, cutting boards and funky bird houses. These beautiful pieces of art are hand-crafted by Mack Strickland. Look here

For Class Interest:

We only have one class remaining for this year. Theresa Hunter-Snow has been asked to teach the framed quilled letter again before Christmas. This is a 2-day class, 2 hours each day on December 7th and 8th from 10 am until noon. The first day will be learning how to quill and create the many objects which will be used to create the letter. Saturday will be devoted to attaching the quilled items to the letter you have chosen. You will complete a framed picture worthy of hanging in your home.

Be sure to check out our Class Schedule page to register and pre-pay for the classes which will begin after the first of the year. We will all need some play time by then. We continue to add new class content and instructors. If you would like a specific class, let us know, and we’ll do out best to find an instructor.
