Announcing the launch of The Mermaid Art Studio in Long Beach’s West End! Starting Monday Sept. 23, we’ll be open for business with classes and workshops for kids, teens and adults in painting, drawing, mixed media, knitting, crochet, bookbinding, upcycled projects and more!
For all the folks who’ve asked about lessons or general help with a pattern, this is the place! We’re planning group classes as well as one-on-one sessions, and eventually drop-in sessions (probably in the winter) where you can come hang with like-minded fiber fans.
Visit us at www.themermaidartstudio.com or on Facebook.

Wow- this week was a snorcher but all our budding bookbinders & book artists performed exceptionally!
Creative energy produced enough books to fill a library, including:
- Books using the rabbit stitch (japanese stab binding)
- Pamphlet folders with the kitten stitch
- Accordion books with our relief plates
- Instant books with no sewing
- Paper bag books
- Pocketbook books from recycled, melded plastic bags with pockets, flaps & decorative sewing
- Portfolio folders with our own decorative paper
Plus crocheting, weaving, painting, drawing, sewing & more. A big thanks for Ms. Collins for all the ice pops, cold drinks, snacks & kiddie pool to keep us cool. Can’t wait to see some of you again next week!
