I'm helping at the Church's Soccer Camp and VBS every morning this week and also keeping tabs on my grand daughter in the afternoons. The studio will be open in the evenings, and some selected days depending on Mum's work schedule. Please contact me for open studio times.

Weekend Shout Out! I'm still looking for a catchy name for this weekly "shout out". I've received the following suggestions, but am not 100% sold on any of them. What do you think? Can you suggest something catchy?
Let's have a contest! Send me your ideas and I'll offer a $35 coupon for longarm rentals, services or to go towards a class registration at the studio as a prize for the winning contribution. Deadline is the end of July to get your suggestions to me. We'll make a choice and award the $35 coupon August 1.
