We shoot in front of a live studio audience so if you connect with us via social media you just might be invited to our next taping. It involves lots of free booze and a fluffer ; ) Heeeyyyy.
Hope you enjoy!
I’m teaching a Dabble Class … Cross Stitch 101
Cross Stitch is an easy-to-learn, counted-thread embroidery technique that is most fun when drinking wine or while in a group. At least that’s my opinion.
I will teach you everything you need to know to start creating impressive works of thread-based genius.
By the end of the class you will have completed your first cross stitch marvel. You can choose to make a bookmark or ornament and you can choose from a bunch of different designs. I promise to have something for everyone.
There will also be wine for reasons stated above.
I will have all the supplies, teach you everything you need to know and you will start making within minutes! So let’s do this. Nothing says love like a cross stitch bookmark.
A hilarious new web series, which is being produced in Chicago, launches today. With a focus on the nonprofit arts world, MartinJon Productions has created a character driven comic series, featuring a cast of talented actors, that showcases local arts and artists.
The series premise is one that is all too familiar within nonprofit arts organizations: Victoria the founder of The Craft Family Art Center was ill-equipped to deal with the untimely death of her main funder Gertrude. In a desperate attempt keep the center open Vicki has had to partner with her ex-husband Randall, a greedy lawyer with little interest in the arts. The series begins today when Randall arrives for his first day and Vicki just can’t seem to deal with the change.
This series will release a new episode every other day for three weeks, after which it will begin weekly releases every Friday.
