Mark your calendars for October 18th and join us in Cherokee for our first Super Saturday Arts and Crafts Fair. There will be plenty going on for you to come spend the day. The vendors, 25 to 30 artsians, will be set up and ready for your shopping pleasure by 10 a.m.
We will have artsians offering handmade quilts, purses, blankets, baby items, place mats, neck pillows, dish towels, cacti, succulants, water plants, Native American leather art, hand made leather work including purses and rifle scabbard, Halloween boxes, Cherokee Indian shirts, Mary Kay products, Shacklee Products, hand made wooden bowls, wooden boxes and tables, decorated pillows, dream catchers, flower arrangements, aleo vera products, Christmas decoration, tamales, salsa, as well as a vast assortment of hand made jewelry by several different crafters.
At 11 a.m. and again at 2 p.m., join Dixie Pitcox for free foot pampering using Tarrah Skin Care Products.
At 10 a.m. the Bead Stringing Workshop will begin. Phyllis Poehlmann, a glass and bead artist from Lometa, and who recently won Grand Champion at the TEEA State Conference with her entry of a vintage style beaded purse in the Cultural Arts Event, will be conducting a workshop instructing students in the art of stringing pearls using silk thread.
The class cost of $20 includes kit with tools and materials to complete a faux pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings. Students will learn how to hand knot and string pearls just like a professional and learn how to distinguish real pearls from man-made ones. Students will go home with their creations, tools and knowledge to make other beaded projects.
Mrs. Poehlmann will have items for sale ranging from hand made beaded purses and jewelry to a small supply of Swarovski crystals and other beading supplies.
Arrive at 10:00 a.m. and stay as long as you like or until 4:00 p.m. Two instructional sessions will begin at 10:00 and 12:30 p.m. Class size is limited, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn how to make some unique Christmas gifts. You can view Mrs. Poehlmann’s work at www.PhyllisPCreations.etsy.com.
At noon you will have your choice of Sue’s special sandwiches and salads, or pizza and Blue Bell ice cream, a real camp fire meal, fried catfish plate, or homemade tamales.
