What a picture is worth

One of the most unsentimental people I know, my dad has for decades hung onto precisely one of the gifts that I've given him: a glass paperweight that holds a school picture of me as a grinning second-grader.

It's the photo he likes - although I also made it myself (if cutting the photo into a circle and inserting it in the bottom of the paperweight counts as a craft project).

For those a little more crafty than I, Olympia's (re)fabulous has an updated idea along these lines: The sewing studio and cafe offers a class on making Dad a padded cover for his laptop, iPad or electronic book, and decorating it with a favorite photo.

The class will be offered three times: Saturday, June 11; Sunday, June 12; and Saturday, June 18 from 1 to 4 p.m. at (re)fabulous, 1025 Black Lake Blvd. The cost is $35.

Sewers will need a yard of medium- or heavy-weight cotton fabric and a jpeg of their image - and the measurements of the gadget to be covered.

Call 360.489.1852 to reserve a spot in one of the classes. For more information, go to www.refabulousyou.com.
