Feather Your Nest 101

I have been asked to teach a class in Round Top, Texas!
I am excited, not only for the opportunity to beginning teaching; but for the setting in which the class will be held. Round Top is home to one of the country's largest Antique Festivals held twice a year. I have spoken about it more times than not, just how great this event really is, not only for die-hard antiquers, but for mixed media artists. If you are looking for it, it is there. If you can't find it in Round Top, just drive down the road a little until you come to Carmine, Warrenton, or Shelby, or maybe Fayetteville, Smithville, or La Bahia! This festival has spread to cover more miles than you can cover in a day, or quite possibly, a week.
"Feathered Nest"
Original design by Diane Cook
A mixed media piece of art jewelry you will enjoy wearing every day!

Laura Sgovio, a talented jewelry designer herself, is the owner of SGOVIO, an inviting boutique, located on Bybee Square in downtown Round Top. Just this past Saturday, Laura had a Grand Opening inviting customers to enjoy her shop's expansion, which now includes women's apparel, accessories and luxurious skin care; not to mention jewelry designs from several Texas artists (including myself).

"Feather Your Nest 101"
This will be the first in a series of classes I will be teaching, each one different and unique.
Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in attending, as this is a quaint venue, allowing a total of only 10 students. I will send you more details, which will include the cost of the class, class description, teacher and student's supply list, cancellation policy, area accommodations and directions to the event.
This part of Texas is absolutely beautiful. Coming here in the Fall is just a bonus!

Oh my goodness!!! I love your jewelry...Summer Colors is georgeous! I would love to learn how to make jewelry but for now, I know I should focus on my other mixed media art. It would be great to take this class...maybe sometime. Have much fun and success with this class!

Silly me, I had told you I wanted to come if I could but, I am signed up to do a Trade Day at my friends Antique Shop that weekend. DARN! And I can't go out to Diana's either.

Good Luck & have fun. What a great location for an event. I'm going to email you about Warrington.
