Sharon Rice

I am the Makerspace Librarian for Pueblo City-County Library District. I work at the Rawlings library makerspace, centrally located in Mesa Junction. When not in a pandemic, we offer maker classes, 3D printing services, simple laser engraving, vinyl cutters, Adobe Creative Suite, and much more. During the pandemic, our services are extremely limited, but I still am offering at least 8 virtual classes per month that are available to the public free of charge. Visit pueblolibrary.org to learn more, or reach out to me with any maker related questions at [email protected]. The great thing about being a librarian is that I might not have all the answers but I bet I can help you find them.

Lois Pfost

I am a retired dietitian. I started woodturning in 2007, joining the Pueblo Woodturners Club, and have been an active member as well as a member of the National Association. I sell a few items and donate to charity raffles, but mostly I enjoy creating new pieces.

Karen Foglesong, Pueblo Arts Alliance [email protected]

My early work includes dance, theatre, puppetry and visual arts. Currently, I am playing with found objects as a medium and I have several writing projects in process. I believe that creative endeavors help us to practice figuring out how we can work together no matter our belief systems. We can build a community that has room for everyone! The Arts Alliance works to bring creatives and business together to nurture a creative economy in Pueblo and to draw attention to our fantastically creative residents. We can help you create connections in our community! Let’s talk and see how we can help each other thrive!

LaDoris Burton, Designs by LaDoris

I am the owner of Designs by LaDoris, located in Pueblo West, where I do alterations and create custom clothing I have been sewing since I was 7 years old.

I was formally trained in clothing construction and pattern making in my hometown of Buffalo New York, needless to say I LOVE what I do.

At this stage in my career I am embarking on a focus on custom designed Handbags, this line is called “POCKETS”, because it has lots of POCKETS, for The Woman On The Go! As well as a clothing line, “Comfortable Pockets” again all have Pockets. My goal is to mass produce these items here in Pueblo!

I am a board member for the Pueblo West Chamber of Commerce and Project Inspire Cooperative
