Come pot your own plant at our Container Gardening Class!!

May 8th Michelle and I will be offering you our born-in-the-sticks/transferred-to-the-city expertise on how to create a thriving container garden! It's not as easy as it seems-- if you just chuck some dirt in a pot, your sweet herbs will die. I know, because it happened to me repeatedly... until I learned some tricks, which I will be happy to share with you for the bargain price of $10.

The Vintage Sheets Collective is always excited about getting donations-- any kind of arty/crafty material you want to give us we'll be happy to pick up from ya! I know everybody's got those cans of paint in the basement, or that bag of fabric you can bring back from your gramma's. You have no idea how helpful that stuff is to us! Email us with donations or questions:

This is the beautiful poster Michelle made for our soap-making class! It's gonna be good, so send us an email and sign up. I tell you what, once you have used hand-made soap, you will be spoiled forever. Turns out, store-bought soap is GARBAGE! BUT it's too expensive to buy it from fancy artisans, so learn to make it yourself for cheap!

Pictures from the Iron Artist contest!

These were the ridiculous trophies that Evie and Ana made.

Everyone hard at work...

Jason's inspiration was Futuristic Hero...

Nick's was Luminous Food...

Matt's was Boring Animal...

I think this one was Confusing Hero.

And these were the trophies.

The Iron Artist Contest was a huge success! Here is how it worked:

• Each participant spun the "idea wheel" and received an adjective and a noun (ex. Fancy Animal, Magical Food)

• The participants began constructing their assignment with all the awesome materials that were donated

• Halfway through everyone was given the "secret ingredient" (blue and yellow feathers) which was a manditory element in their final piece

• Everyone presented their pieces (video coming soon)

• Trophies were given out for "Best Use of Secret Ingredient", "Most Creative Interpretation", "Most Laughs", and "The Prettiest Art of All the Art"

We would like to thank everyone again for trekking through the snow to come to the event! We would also like to thank everyone that donated materials. Those materials will continue to support our community classes.
