Crochet Class, Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced

6-8 pm Wednesday Evenings, Feb 20, 27, March 6, 13, 20, 27

At Organic Fresno Eatery & Market, 903 Parkway Drive (just west of 99, between Belmont & Olive). The restaurant normally closes at 6:00 pm in the evening but will stay open for the beginning crochet class from 6-8 pm. If you want, you can come early and order something healthy & yummy to eat before class.

Each class will be independent, meaning you can come to as many or as few classes as you want, and if you need to skip one and come to another, that is an option too. The classes will be $10 each class per person. Five and Ten class cards are available for purchase and come with a special gift.

Message me with your email if you'd like the syllabus that I had for Fresno Adult School. If you are interested in taking the class as outlined in the Syllabus, then you would need to attend 4 weeks in a row, starting with the first class of each month. Otherwise the classes will be based on individual instruction, with each person getting help with the level that they are at and working at their own pace.

Hello Rachel,  Just wondering how your Craft and Art Fair turned out; you said you were shooting for February.  You also asked about a chicken focused ArtHop.  Is that still of interest to you?  Please contact us as we are planning an event called Arts Alive! for June 22, 2013 and would like to have you involved some how if you are interested.

The Art Stand Gallery in Minkler is looking for local artists for new membership. We are located on Hwy 180 at Frankwood Avenue in Minkler, on the way to Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks, below Squaw Valley. The building started its life as a fruit and produce stand, but in the Spring of 2000 a small group of dedicated local artists converted it into an art gallery.

Promoting the San Joaquin Valley's agricultural theme, much of our art reflects scenes familiar to the Valley. The gallery is on the Blossom Trail and the Fruit Trail routes, and is part of the Sanger Art Hop. Other businesses in the area include the School House Restaurant & Tavern across the street, Sequoia View B&B/Cedar View Winery, and Tivy Valley Winery.
