One of my very favorite stores in all of Austin has asked me to teach a couple of jewelry classes in April and I jumped at the chance! Craft-o-Rama is an adorable sewing lounge and craft store in South Austin that plays 80’s music all the time! I am teaching two different classes and registration has already started so if you are interested you might get a move on since there is only room for 8 people in each class. Not only will we be learning how to make jewelry we can also chat about running a small business, marketing, correct ways to open a jump ring and more – for 2 whole hours I am yours to quiz on all your hot burning questions. Email Hayley, call the store at 512-707-2405 or stop by (3100 S Congress Ave Austin, TX 78704) to sign up for the classes.
