“We like to consider By Mountain Hands to be a place of inspiration, training and opportunity for artists and craftspeople, coordinating and holding classes in many different types of arts and crafts, and hopefully have a comfortable place for artists, crafters, local folks/residents to come and feel welcome,” said owner Millie Pejakovich. “We are planning different meetings and groups designed to provide help, tips, hints, interactions and socializing to keep folks informed, healthy, happy and perhaps help folks save a few dollars along the way. We’ll soon be starting our ‘Frugal Home’ monthly group which will meet to discuss all manner of things for the home. Especially ideas to save money, time and frustration,” Pejakovich continued.

Folks are invited to check out the website at, as well as their facebook page By Mountain Hands. Both will list classes, events and group meetings. Future classes/activities include scrapbooking meetings and classes, artist/crafters sales/swap days and more. Additionally, free children’s classes featuring a seasonal art or craft projects will be held every other Saturday, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Store hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Millie invites you to stop by the store to find out what’s new and what’s coming up.
