Classes and Workshops

Our Spring classes and workshops were a big hit!  We had a lot of fun and are planning more for this fall!  Interested in a specific topic?  We can offer individual or classroom settings for our skill classes.  Give Jessica a call at our office 815-625-7860 and talk with her about specific classes or workshops that you would like to see offered this fall.

We have lots of phone calls for different topics.  Just to give you an idea of what we are getting requests for:

-Job searching

-Cooking for one

-Sewing for beginners

-Starting a business

These are just a few we are working on.  By popular demand we will be bringing back our Money Management/Budgeting workshop and Health and Nutrition class.
