It's Happening at The Create Exchange

August 12, 2016

 

 

It's been an exciting week at The Create Exchange! I attended a very inspiring Visual Marketing workshop Wednesday morning and was lucky to have Main Street Iowa and Anna Woodward here in the store in the afternoon, to help us transform our window display. Anna showed us how to use color, repetition, and scale in the windows to create an eye-catching display. Volunteers Jessica Winkowski, Lauri Richards and Sheryl Layher, brought their crafting skills to the table. They framed fabric in hoops, wrapped yarn balls, and wove yarn and tulle onto bicycle wheels. The end result? A super fun, colorful and playful display that shows even using the simplest supplies, you can create beautiful art.

Special thanks to Jennifer Pruden and Cedar Rapids Main Street , Czech Village/ New Bohemia Historic Main Street District for bringing this wonderful event to us. Also, a huge thanks to our wonderful group of volunteers who gave up their time to help make this window display so beautiful.
