Meet More of the Artists:

In addition to the creative women in the previous post, you will find work from Sally Borgen:

Sally Borgen has had her hands in fabric, glue, paint, glitter, yarn, beads and a mixture of these for 40 years.

Founder of Stitchery Retreats in the 70's and 4French Hens in 2005, she is the perennial life-long learner. 

From folk art to soldering, she's traveled to take classes with some very creative and well-known artists and continues to take classes when she's home. 

A retired teacher and media specialist, she says " I'm constantly reinventing myself because there's always something new to learn. 

I'm mostly self-taught, so it's thrilling when I take a class with someone whose work I admire.

Experimenting and trying new mediums not only keeps me busy, but it truly keeps me sane!" 

Also featured at the boutique-try to figure out how Margaret Oltmans crochets with tiny beads:

"Beads into Bracelets"

Jewelry created with beads and stones - mostly "bead crochet" and mostly bracelets.

Created by Margaret Oltmans, Works at 609.

More from Margaret:

There will be so much to see at the "2 Short of a Dozen" Holiday Boutique, you will be able to get all kinds of holiday shopping taken care of in one spot! And rather than heading to the mall, you can shop in a warm and friendly setting and buy unique products while supporting local artists.

We have even more creative people to share with you-stay tuned!
