Winter-time wanderings

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

We had been warned when we purchased the Flying Eagle Gallery back in July (2012), that winter-time was slow slow slow… Nothing happening and no one coming in the store. NOT TRUE!

Though we certainly haven’t been as busy as summer-time or pre-Christmas, we’ve been busy. Saturdays in particular have been fun with classes. Maybe folks in town don’t have as much to do when the roads are snowy, but our classes have been quite popular.

Also, with folks staying indoors more in the winter, they get busy with their hands. Winter-time is Craft-time. And the Flying Eagle Gallery is the place to go for all your arts and crafts supplies, tools and ideas.

Winter-time is also our time to plan our purchases for the year – and more than ever we are working to support our local artists and crafters – purchasing or consigning their work for sale at the Flying Eagle, as well as selling supplies and tools.

‘Tis the season for craft classes!

There are so many good reasons to take crafting classes – learn a new skill, bone up on an old one, develop new ideas for gifts, meet new people, …

We’ve just finished two leaded glass class – meaning that 6 more people have gotten their hands dirty in glass-work. One more beginner level class to go, then we move on to intermediate classes, as well as other crafts – e.g., paper making, jewelry assembling, pastels, traditional bead-work… It’s fun for us to teach them, and it seems like the folks taking them are enjoying themselves (and they’re coming up with some very nice completed projects – we’ve posted a few photos on our facebook page). Most classes are $25 for a 2-hr intro session – and well worth it. And here’s the Schedule!

Also, as we’re able, we are making room in the store and in our schedules to open up work space (for rent) so you can come, use our space, tools and supplies, and make the mess at our place rather than yours (plus, you can pick our brains for any help on the project). If that sounds like a good deal, give us a holler. (Rent will vary, depending on what resources you’ll need and how long you’ll need them.)

 

A New Look!

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

I finally threw my hands in the air regarding the old website – here’s our new look! I’ll add content as I can – particularly pages that provide excellent information on the services and products available. And NOT just ’cause we want you to spend your money here! We’re pretty darned excited about what we’re doing, why we’re doing it, how we’re doing it, and who we’re doing it for!

Here’s a taste:
