SPRINGFIELD ARTWORKS NEWS
Help Springfield ArtWorks celebrate their first anniversary this November. They will be hosting two teachers from Wisconsin who are both authors. A sampling of their work will be on the Springfield ArtWorks website soon. Spaces in the classes will fill up fast as these teachers are very knowledgeable in the felting and jewelry arena. Just by happenstance, Margie, the owner of ArtWorks ran into them at a Chicago area stitchery event and after seeing and purchasing some of their pieces, she immediately inquired about their availability in November for the week of ArtWorks anniversary. Margie commented, "Airline tickets are purchased, 4 area ladies are on the list and excitement is apparent around the gallery." Class samples will be in the gallery the later part of September. In addition to the classes on the 4th and 5th of November, Artworks will also be having an open house on Saturday, November 6 for the general public to attend. Mark your calendars NOW she says. It should be a fun event. More details will be out in future Springfield e-newsletters.
Springfield ArtWorks will be closed from Sept 4-20 and will re-open on Sept 21 at 1pm. They can be reached by phone at 402-301-9162.
Stop by Springfield ArtWorks for your copy of Nebraskaland Magazine and the free Country Register, packed full of places to go in the area.
