From press release
As we enter the month of November, we want to start by expressing our gratitude for our community as you support us by taking classes and making donations to support our scholarship fund for those in need. We are excited to share that the fall/winter semester of Access CVU, your destination for community education based out of CVU High School, is well underway! With over 90 classes remaining, including a mix of past favorites and creative new options, there’s something for everyone!
It’s never too early to start thinking about holiday gift-giving!
- We have a number of craft classes that will set you up to make gifts for your friends and family — how about knitting socks, or sewing a knit winter hat (patterns for all sizes)?
- Are you looking for the perfect gift that will always be in stock and won’t expire? Consider an Access gift certificate!
- Or go ahead and register for a class like needle-felted acorns, a batik sampler or chocolate specialties with your favorite person and enjoy some quality time together!
- Our second craft fair of the fall season is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 26. Grab your friends and family and come shop from local crafters!
At right is a list of classes scheduled for November, organized by category. All classes meet in person at CVU, with the exception of a handful of online classes (identified with an “*”) which will meet over Zoom or Google Meet.
