I am pleased to announce that I am participating in the wonderful craft classes being presented at New York City's famous Tinsel Trading Company. Marcia Ceppos' establishment, begun by her grandfather more than 75 years ago, remains a virtual treasure trove of unique vintage trims, inspiring extraordinary creativity. The store is an explosion of magic and is an experience in itself! Listed below are the details for the Christmas and Valentine classes. You may email me or email Tinsel Trading Company directly. Class size is limited, so that everyone will have an individualized and memorable experience. The shop is conveniently located in the heart of the Garment District.
