It's hard to believe it's been 10 years. So much life has happened, and many of you have been there for all of it - the good parts, the challenging parts, and sometimes the sad parts. 
The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change - the kind of change that necessitates adaptability in life. I had NO IDEA when pondering names for the Shop that this would prove prophetic time & time again. And... I am only too aware that I COULD NOT have done any of it without the "village".  You have my deepest appreciation!

So excited to welcome back Mayu Silk Art to
The Dragonfly Studio.

Saturday, March 11,  10:00 - 4:00

Discover the Mayu Silk Art Experience at the delightfully charming Dragonfly Shops & Gardens. You will use the ancient art of water marbling to design and create swirling colors and intricate patterns to be transferred in a magical instant to 100% silk. Your finished item is ready to wear as a scarf or beach wrap, or use as a stunning table runner or other home decor. And of course, it makes a fantastic gift! Star McCain & her team of artisans will be ready to guide you through the use of the tools & paints - no experience necessary!

This event is OPEN TO ALL AGES, GENDERS & ABILITIES, and requires no advance registration. Just come on down to watch for free, or discover for yourself the joy of water marbling. Makes a fun day out!

One-of-a-kind, ready to go, hand painted custom silk pillows, scarves, fabrics, and other items will be available for purchase.

** Due to the extreme popularity of last year's event at Dragonfly, we will have additional trays set up to minimize wait time. Call at least one day ahead if you'd like to reserve a time. **

MAKE IT MORE: While you're here, register for the upcoming water marbling workshop at Dragonfly Studio (March 20, 6pm), and you can make a small item today for FREE!

Since the Studio has such a great vibe, as part of our festivities, we'd like to showcase local bands. We have a few bands booked, and we'd love to have music every weekend in March. If you know anyone who plays in a band (all different types), and would like to be showcased, please let us know.
There is no $$$ involved on either end -
just some great local music to be seen & heard.
