Heritage House Hosts Make-Create Night On July 5

Sunday, June 24, 2018

Are you tired of staring at that unfinished art or craft project gathering dust in your hobby room? Take it to Make-Create and finish it!

 

Heritage House's Make-Create is a home for creatives of all 'stripes.' Based on the 'Artist's Way' book series by Julia Cameron and its creative clusters, Make-Create is a place for creative people working within any medium.

(Non-traditional and traditional crafting is welcome!)

 

If you don't have a project you are currently working on, just go and hang out, and who knows? You might even learn something new.

 

Organizers are currently putting together ongoing beading and balloon art classes to be taught by Ms. Patricia Balloona.

It will be starting up in the near future. Stay tuned. 

 

Food at Make-Create is potluck so feel free to bring a sweet or savory but simple dish, snack item or "mock-tail" to share with your fellow creatives.

 

Although the Maker Group meets every first Thursday from 6 - 9:30 p.m., the format is free-form, so feel free to attend when your schedule allows -- don't be shy about coming in a bit late or having to leave a bit early.

 

Heritage House is at 1428 Jenkins Road in the East Brainerd area (37421).

For directions or information, call 423 855-9474.

Bill Lee Is Great For Tennessee

I had the opportunity to meet Bill and Maria Lee at the grand opening of his Chattanooga Campaign HQ. He delivered, what was by most accounts, a showstopper speech at the Statesman’s dinner in Nashville the night before. He and Maria should have been worn out, but if they were, they really showed very little sign of it. His energy level, for a guy that couldn’t have gotten more ... (click for more)

A Successful East Ridge Bake Sale

Saturday's event at the Camp Jordan Pavilion was nothing more than extraordinary, if not history making.  Alongside the threatening eminent domain letters the citizens of East Ridge received, a Union was formed amongst the East Ridge Police Department.  Coming to City Council the night of April 26, I had only one thing I was focused on: eminent domain.  ...
