Welcome to our special nest... Verbena's Artist Studio...

Today we had our first Sewing class taught by Melody ...she is such a beautiful lady, teacher & friend.. I think this is the beginning of many classes here in the Studio.. I feel as if I am truly doing what I love.. bringing kindred spirits together to learn, create & have fun!!! I am posting some pics to share our special space here in this Historic building and some pictures of the studio & class...I am a little tired so please excuse my post if it's a little dull.. xoox Laura
Welcome to the first landing .. check out the stain glass window.. one of many...one the most incredible buildings in Down town Ocala.. The Marion Block Building was once housed as the original Ocala Opera house.
Up the stairs to the Studio...nothing like this building downtown
I love the old world charm & beauty of this hallway.. original oak paneling, tiled floors, high ceilings and us!!!
Sewing area.. our cozy peaceful corner in the world.

Special Irish linen stored away for projects
Oh that darn bobbin... Melody is the queen of sewing I must say.
Catherine, Melody & Olivia sewing & thinking........
