Studio Move this Weekend

Our lease with Railroad Square is quickly coming to an end. Just 6 days until the end of November and on to the next phase for FSGNW.

It is vitally important that you remove all personal items, work on display, displays, and equipment from the studio prior to November 29th. We are only packing and moving chapter-owned items and we will lose access to the Studio after November 30.

The plan is to move everything from Railroad Square to a storage unit over the weekend of November 29th and 30th. We need volunteers to bring boxes, pack up the studio tools and equipment, and help move everything to the storage unit.

Please let Starr know if you can help.  She plans on being there Sunday morning and the Friday after Thanksgiving.

If you have any questions, please email or call Starr at 850-212-3685

Thank you to all that came out this past weekend to pack boxes, move items, and tour the potential teaching/studio space at Making Awesome. 


Hold Fast to Dreams



“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
Langston Hughes

Thanks to contacts made within our own membership, the chapter leaders are actively working with another group in town to come to an agreement to share the other group’s  space in Railroad Square. This could be a great opportunity, giving both groups opportunities to learn new skills and collaborate. Talks are in the early stages and we’ll post more information when it’s known.

Studio Meeting Report

We had a productive meeting at the Studio last night and identified duplicate and unneeded items for sale. Plan on coming down to the Studio tomorrow during First Friday and checking out what’s on sale. We’ll post a full inventory list on the website, but for starters we’ll have one training table (w/o bench pins, grinder/buffer with hood, heat gun, folding tables, canvas drop cloths, some display units, chairs, cabinet and a copier).

Starr will be at the Studio Saturday and Sunday, so if you have time to come down and both pick up anything of yours in the studio AND help pack items for the move, it would be appreciated. Many hands DO make light work.
