MISSOULA — Missoulians from all different ages came together Saturday to make cookies and holiday trays at a local shop.

There was a large crowd of people waiting to decorate cookies and make holiday trays inside Anders Ruff's workshop where the owner of the Eclipse Bakery taught the, how to decorate cookies.

“It was really fun and easy, and they were totally engaged the whole time, which was awesome,” said Heather Bilbrick, who brought her two kids to take part in the Cookies and Trays event.

She added that the event was fun and exciting for her children.

Owner Janis Yoswa’s parents owned the space years ago and it was used as a jewelry shop but now, it's a workshop that is full of decor -- and has been opened for more than six months now.

“It’s really exciting, it always feels like I am welcoming people into my home. It is also really great to see their faces when they see the final reveal because, they are mostly surprised at how well their items look,” said Yoswa.

This holiday season the workshop is hosting events everyday such as a kids night only event. Yoswa’s hope for the future is to expand the workshops.

“I'm just really looking forward to expanding our workshops, adding new projects and new designs and also with our spring break camps and kids camps in the summer that will be a really fun way for families to get out and do somethings together as well.”

The next holiday event is set for Sunday, Dec. 14 -- which is Snuggle Up Sunday, wehen people can make their own chunky knit blankets. Click here for more information about the upcoming events.
