The Folk Art Marketing Cooperative, Menomonie, WI has just approved my membership in their art cooperative.  They previewed my tapestry bags and jewelry.  I am excited about this opportunity for many reasons.

  • I believe in their mission of life long learning
  • My work can be sold in their store, located downtown across from Mabel Tainter Theater
  • I can plan and offer art classes to share my skills
  • The large open space will give me a workspace for my stained glass construction
  • The diverse community of artisans is inspiring
  • Close association with students from the UW will bring fresh ideas
  • I can learn new skills, such as pottery

Example of Emporium classes offered this May:

  • Hand Quilting
  • Crochet Squares
  • Wet Felting
  • Doll Embellishments
  • Crochet Doll Hats
  • Knitting
  • Frame Loom Weaving
  • Coiled Jute Treasure Basket
  • Spinning
  • Embellishing Clutch Bag
  • Embellishing Straw Hat

Music Jamborees, 2nd & 4th Thursdays provide dulcimer, guitar and other acoustic musical inspiration!

After I set up my display, I will post pictures!
