Information on wearing scarves and painting embroidery work with Jacquard Textile paints will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and noon Thursday (all times Mountain).

Author, wardrobe consultant, and designer Nancy Nix-Rice knows that some women have difficulties wearing scarves. She explains that scarves add polish to most outfits, they can be used to link unexpected color combos and can direct the focal point where you want it to be. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri.

Catherine Jordan represents the Embroiderers’ Guild of America in Louisville, Kentucky, and she’s going to show examples of embroidery work which have been painted using Jacquard Textile paints. She’ll demonstrate how to mix the paints and then how to add them to the fabric.

Information on preparing a fajita menu and using recycled products to make “green” jewelry will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” noon Tuesday and 2 p.m. Saturday.

Cookbook author and chef John Vollertsen, more commonly known as Chef Johnny Vee, will demonstrate how a Fajita menu makes for a great party theme because most items can be prepared in advance. He owns and operates Las Cosas Cooking School in Santa Fe.

Designer Shannon Bielke will show how to use recycled products, lots of “bling,”along with paints to create beautiful “green” jewelry. Her business is Sha & Co. and she lives in Payson, Arizona.
