Figamarole? I'm sure you're thinking, what the heck is she typing now? Well, Carly and I visited the most amazing house last night. A house for hanging out, creating (whatever your medium) and just having a great time.
Figamarole...(click on the name to get to the website) We heard about the place from a fellow scrapbooker friend and decided to go hang out there. They have a regularly scheduled Craft 'n Gab night on Wednesdays from 6:00 - 9:00 for $5 so off we went. Risse, the owner was super friendly and greeted us as we pulled up. She gave us a quick tour of the house (adorable!) and then showed us where to set up. After we put down our things, we took a closer look and fell in love with the place! All through the house are samples of previous and upcoming creations made at one of their classes. Tons of inspiration everywhere.
All of the ladies last night were sewing and we had the chance to meet a few of the "regulars". They were all very nice and friendly and we instantly felt welcomed - didn't feel like newbies at all. There was regular chatter throughout the house, food, drinks and laughter.
We're going back on Saturday for their all day scrapbooking crop - we can't wait.
If you live in the area and need a spot to relax, check them out. They are located on Roeding Road in Ceres, CA. Go to the website (click on the link above) to get a calendar and learn more of the history of the place and instructors.
Very, very cool!
