Once again, I will be teaching several interior design courses for the community education departments in the Baldwin and Central St. Croix school districts.
I will be teaching Window Treatments 101, to help students learn the basics of what is available today in the world of window fashions. I will also be offering Room Rescue, which is a round-table discussion of a particular problem room for each student; attendees are requested to bring floor plans, room photos and other information and I will offer tips to help them get started on their projects.
During the winter sessions, I will be offering a class in the craft of Paper Quilling, as well as Design Trends 2011 to show you the hot new colors and trends in the world of interior design.
What classes would you like for me to offer in the future? Are you interested in learning how to coordinate fabrics in a room? How to decorate with paint? What are your ideas? I’m happy to craft new classes to give you just the information you are looking for, so please leave any ideas or thoughts in a comment here! And, look for class dates (and, maybe, class additions!) later this fall.
What other courses would you like me to offer in the future?
I have posted in the past regarding the help offered by We Do Feet, an organization in Hudson which serves the entire St. Croix Valley area in Wisconsin and Minnesota. If you have furniture or appliances you wish to donate to this worthy organization, they have a new phone number: 715-781-0622.
You will find more information on the group and what items they accept for donation. They are able to pick up larger items, or you can arrange a time to drop them by the warehouse yourself. Aside from furniture and appliances, cash donations and donations of gently used or new mattress pads and sheet sets/bedding are also greatly needed. These smaller items can be dropped by Trinity Lutheran Church (either campus) in Hudson during their regular office or service hours.
Thanks to all of you who have donated furniture in the past; I know several of my clients have given items they no longer needed after our redecorating projects! Please pass this information on to friends and family you know who may have items they wish to donate. All the donations are so appreciated – especially by those in our area who receive the assistance.
Beginning on March 30, I will be teaching a series of 3 interior design classes through the St. Croix Central Community Education program. Each class is $10, or take all 3 for $25:
Tuesday, March 30, 6:30 pm: Room Rescue: Bring your floorplans, dimensions and photos for some design advice on your biggest design problems. Class size is limited, so register early!
Tuesday, April 27, 6:30 pm: Color Trends 2010: Learn about the interior design trends for the coming year, and take a peek at some of the latest fabrics, wallcoverings and tiles.
