So, a "little birdie" recently pointed out to me some big changes happening at MichaelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s regarding their scrapbooking classes. (Haha, I think I'm so clever with my little pun there. Birdie. Canary. tee hee.)
MichaelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s has recently implemented a new program called "Spotted Canary School" to encompass all of their crafting classes. (Including a four-week beginning scrapbooking class as well as two-hour Ã¢â‚¬Å“miniÃ¢â‚¬Â classes using Martha Stewart Crafts Studio Kits.)
If the Spotted Canary term sounds familiar, you aren't losing your mind. Yes, Spotted Canary has been around since 2009, and was first introduced as an online crafting community affiliated with / sponsored by EK Success. Spotted Canary offers online classes, galleries, etc.
Hm… so if Michaels has now renamed their workshops as "Spotted Canary School," what does that say about the relationship between EK Success and Michaels? (And oh yeah, Martha Stewart is an EK Success brand.) Very interesting….
