New Additions 'Felt' in Hope U's Boutique

We have some new additions to our Hope University Boutique inventory.  They are beautiful felt earrings and necklaces made by the students in Lisa's Felting Class.  There are wonderful colors and textures in these unique pieces of wearable art.  Here we have some photos of hand felted earrings.  Look forward to photographs of the class making felt and perhaps even wearing felt.  These and so many more items will be featured at our boutique on the night of the Christmas Program, information to the left in the 'Upcoming Events' box.  Don't forget the boutique opens early at 5:00pm before the show.  So be sure to get there early for the best selection.  These amazing pieces are not to be missed and will sell out fast! Get your own piece one of a kind wearable felt art, exclusively available at the Hope University Boutique.  If you are interested in any of these pieces and would like to purchase them before the show, you can call us at (714) 778-4440 to inquire.

Halloween at Hope U.

Hope University's Halloween party was a blast!  Fun was had by all.  We were treated to a puppet show, put on by student Frank Luna with an improvisational  performance assisted by Miguel Aldaz.  There was a costume contest and parade, a doughnut eating contest followed by a dance with music DJ'd by Hope U's very own spinning DJ, Tom Veltman.
