     This month we’re pleased to feature Joyce Cashner, another local artist who has been a tried and true member of the Really Cool Stuff family from the time we first opened in 2005.
 
     Hailing from New Paris in Preble County Ohio, she moved to West Milton at the start of her career as an Elementary School Arts Teacher. A graduate of Miami University, she spent a few years in the Milton-Union School System before moving on to the Troy City Schools where she remained until she retired in 1986. But even while working in Troy, she still kept her feet in West Milton where she met and married the local Game Warden, Ted Cashner. At the time, Ted suggested she learn to fish if she hoped to see much of him through the spring and summer months. She did, and that was just the beginning of the many activities the two have shared over their 53 years together. Even today they’re seldom apart and can frequently be seen at The Pearson House for breakfast.  

    A true artist, Joyce enjoys working in many different mediums, especially those associated with jewelry making like enameling, metals and polymer clay. But she is probably best known for her gorgeous weavings. She first became interested in fiber arts while student teaching when the instructor introduced needle-weaving as a classroom project, and she has not stopped since. She enjoys knitting and sewing as well, but as you might guess when you see the big looms that occupy a place of honor in their home, weaving is her true passion. And that passion shows in every meticulously finished stole, cape, scarf, shrug, blouse, vest and more she displays and sells here at Really Cool Stuff. And if you want jewelry to match, she’s happy to do that too! Special colors? She’ll work with you on custom orders, and will even make those hard-to-find clip earrings for those of you who never had your ears pierced.  

    Joyce is an active member of Country Workshop Artists and The Upper Valley Fiber Guild, and will display and sell her work at the upcoming events that each group holds in October. You’ll also find her at the Allwood Art Fair in Englewood, OH on November 28th. 

    But we also hope you’ll stop by here at Really Cool Stuff where you’ll find her almost every Thursday from 11:00 to 2:30.
