Chili Feed and Pottery Sale 2017

It's almost that time of year again.  The time when the wintry weather gets  a tad overwhelming, so we warm our tummys with chili in a handmade bowl!

Join us on Feb. 25th from 11am-5pm at the Corbin Senior Center for our annual Chili Feed and Pottery Sale.

BTW, the studio will be closed on the 25th, 'cause we'll all be at the Chili Feed!
