    Chicky D, I wanted to let you know that I have signed up for Nomadic Notions’ newsletter. We have a great selection of classes here, but seeing work from a different shop always gets the creative juices flowing! :)

    Thank you so much, K H, Green Eyed Lady Chick, Tara, and Shannon!

    One of the best teachers, Mick, is moving. Unfortunately, the classes she taught will go with her as they are her designs. I never got to take the Art Wire class. She only taught it once a year, and I had a conflict the last time it was offered. I believe you can archive back 2–3 years and see designs for various classes.
