March:  Mia Hanson, Mia's Handwovens, loom weaving

Mia Hanson: Twenty years ago, at a Renaissance Faire in Colorado, I was introduced to the loom at a historical clothing vendor booth. I've spent the years since playing with yarn- honing my skills at the loom, learning new techniques, and embracing new styles of weaving as I find out about them. All of this reminded me of that early fascination with this incredible piece of equipment and the things that it can create.
In 2019, I decided that it was the time to share more than just finished products with the world. I wanted to teach my community to love weaving the way I do. To breathe the meditative rhythms of the loom, and to build their own relationships with the materials our world provides for us with which to create.
I formally opened Mia's Handwovens to share this creative skill with the world in an accessible way, starting with in-person workshops in Everett  and the Greater Seattle Area. I plan to continue creating new tools and designing new looms that will enable you to unleash your creative side even further.

April:  Graybarn Studios, glassblowing:
Gray Barn Studios was founded in 2018 in Arlington, WA by Jimmy Anderegg, Nicole Anderegg and Megan Stelljes. Together they operate hot, cold, and neon glass studio spaces, creating work as individuals as well as collaboratively. They bring together a passion for the material, as well as education and community building. 

May: Tina Richarson, Hometown Candle Company and author
Three local businesses worked together and have written and illustrated a children’s book featuring a heartwarming story about a child joyfully experiencing Arlington’s Hometown Holidays with his family (and Santa!). The goal of the book is to support an Arts Scholarship addition to the local Dollars for Scholars scholarship program to be awarded to selected Arlington senior students graduating in 2024.

June:  Alice Burgin, flower arranging - interactive demonstration.
Alice has been professionally designing flowers for over 63 years.  She brought her successful wedding and party business from Chicago to Dallas and eventually to Arlington. She has won awards in the U.S. and Canada at the F.T.D. Design Shows. Alice was Mary Kay Ashe's personal florist for many years, creating designs for huge Mary Kay conventions.
