HGTV DIY Across America



STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOHNNA EASTER

HGTV DIY Across America recently held a workshop at AR Workshop, a business owned by Amy Thomas, a former teacher and lifetime crafter, in the Orangery Building. Present at the workshop was Amy’s niece, Madison Hill, who introduced her aunt to the franchise. For the workshop, each participant got to choose from a variety of wood projects: framed wooden sign, centerpiece box, lazy susan or pedestal tray. They also got a bonus project: a “Happiness is Homemade” plank sign. During the workshop, participants enjoyed cupcakes, cookies and sparkling water. Everyone left with an HGTV goodie bag that included painter’s tape, a workshop apron, a ruler and a carpenter’s pencil.
