The news in Union City continues to be heading towards art and more art. The Artisan Loop is now open and intends to create a community of talented individuals who lift one another up by way or promoting each other businesses.

In doing so, owner, Jamie Matchett said “I believe we all benefit to a higher level of thinking and performance. We will loop our knowledge and advise back into our local environment in hopes to find hidden talents in others. It is important to nurture confidence in new skills, so uplifting and encouraging words are promoted in this group.”

She firmly believes hobbies, inner passions and desires are the sole solution to cleaning up the streets. It takes a community. The Artisan Loop is located at 336 Oak Street in Union City. Check out her Facebook page and see the work she is doing. She is encouraging craft skills and working with children. No better place to do it than in a community that has ART.
