One-hour sessions start at $60, and half-hour sessions are $35, she said. Hours: 8 a.m.–8 p.m. daily. Phone: (417) 576-4815.

Kat’s Crafts and Creations
Kathy Allen started Kat’s Crafts and Creations on May 2. Allen sells her crafts, primarily jewelry made from semiprecious stones, online at and at local craft shows. Allen said starting Kat’s Crafts and Creations was an opportunity to follow a long-held interest.  “I’ve always loved rocks and stones, and I became interested in jewelry because I really love it, and I always tend to buy it,” Allen said. “I finally decided I wanted to start making my own.” Allen describes her jewelry as a combination of simple and sophisticated looks. She creates her jewelry and crafts from her Springfield home, and products at range from a $3 hand-crocheted dish cloth to a three-piece set of jewelry for $85.
