Who are we?

We are a mother-daughter team who love art and want to see it in people’s lives!

Lisa Foss is the business brain behind the inner workings of Beyond the Bolt. If you call us or send us an email, you will more than likely be talking to her! When she’s not running the show, you can find her assisting in classes, participating in Open Sew, or crocheting her latest creation! 

Colleen McFarlin is a teacher here at Beyond the Bolt. She is your girl for all fiber, fashion, and art needs! She graduated from SCAD with a degree in Fibers in 2014, specializing in Quilting, Beading, and Weaving! She is passionate about helping teens and adults learn a new skill, experiment with out of the box thinking, or explore a different part of their creativity! 

We believe in giving teens and adults space to pursue any artistic dream they may have, whether it's to strengthen their professional craft or an opportunity to learn something new and make some new friends. Both of us are here to help you in anyway we can! 

Here is a cute picture of us circa 1997! Can’t wait to meet you!
