Welcome to SlipAway Ceramics and Crafts
Thank all of you for you're care, concerns, thoughts and prayers in the loss of Linda's brother, David. Thank you also for your patience while we tried to muddle along with her gone. She's back and things will be running smoothly again very soon. We have the nicest and best customers in the world. Again, "Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
We want everyone to know how much we appreciate our customer; new and those that have been with us for a while. To show our appreciation we would like to help everyone get started on their Christmas and fall Holiday works of art. We will be celebrating fall and winter holidays during the month of July, since I am so latre getting this notice on here we will extend our Christmas in July sale through Saturday, August 16. All retail customers will receive a 10% discount on Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter and Christmas ceramic greenware. Come in and see the items we have in stock, look at our online catalog or call and ask if we have an item, we'll do our best to meet your needs.
Our Stained Glass Class are a big success. Everyone is having so much fun! Leigh Ann is back and ready to go again on July 24. we all have our pieces cut and we're ready to go to the next step. Fun, Fun, Fun... hmmm...sounds like a Beach Boys song! This class is full, but let us know if you would be interested in our next series of classes, we'll put the start up date on the website as soon as we set it.
Our glass fusion forms are in! We will be having another glass fusion class in mid to late August, so sign up and let us know what date is best for you. We will let you know as soon as the date is set, we have all the necessary materials available and just ordered in some new colors of frit that will be available before the class. Watch for the up coming dichroic glass class, in this class we will be making a beautiful pendant of your own design using fusible glass and dichroic glass. The creativity just keeps flowing!!!
Our sewing class took a turn last week, with Linda out of town we cancelled the class
Our sewing class for this week will be a lounging pants. You can make short or long from fabric of your choice. Vickie will be teaching this class, you will all be so happy to have Linda back for the next class, but I promise to behave like a teacher! Please call for a supply list.
We are working on classes for the month of August. I know it's early, but when you want to make your own gifts and decorations it is time to get started. In the next couple of months we will be offering sewing classes in making table runners and placemates, pillow cases, lounging pants, wall hangings. small quilts and a few others still on the drawing table. To get more information on classes and times, please go to the "Classes" tab or click here.
Now, about our ceramics classes; we offer open workshop for ceramics during all of our working hours. There is always a qualified ceramics instructor available for advice and instruction. We will be offering specialty classes closer to the end of the summer. Now is a great time to be thinking about fall decorating and Christmas gift giving. Look through our on-line catalog and call ahead to make sure we have the exact piece or pieces that you want to do or just come in and look through the pieces we have poured ahead. Just a note for those of you who have been asking and have been customers for a long time, yes, it's true...Skip is pouring for us again.
We are considering doing some classes in "lost" arts and crafts. It is sad to say but many of the classes we offer are being "forgotten" in our time of immediate gratification. I can't tell you how many people come in the shop, see our Christmas trees and say, "Oh my grandma had one of those." Well, Grandma made hers. Those quilts that were so comfortable before the day of Comforts from big box stores; Grandma and Aunt Mary spent hours and lots of love putting those quilts together. We would like to bring some of that back. If you know of a "craft" you would like to learn, let us know. If one of us doesn't know how to do it we'll go on a search to find a qualified teacher.
So come in, relax, have a cup of coffee and meet some of the nicest people around...our customers. The only thing missing is you!
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
