Highlands Clubhouse

Tucson, AZ – December 30, 2021 – Heritage Highlands residents will be able to learn a new skill every month during the 2022 year. The Highlands, Dove Mountain Activity Director, Kelsey Christiansen has locked in monthly dates with Antsy Nancy Founder & CEO, Heidi Yribar to teach classes to The Highland members throughout the 2022 year, as part of their on-going Corks and Crafts program.

Antsy Nancy, located within a mile of TMC at 5655 E River Rd. in the prominent River Center, provides how-to skills classes for home, health, and happiness. Master skills classes are designed for beginners with new DIY projects offered every month. Categories include Arts & Crafts, Cooking & Entertaining, Gardening & Landscaping, Holiday Projects, Home Decorating, and Health, Wellness & Beauty. Expert instruction, tools and materials are all provided and each class results in a new skill learned and a successfully executed project for students to share with family and friends.

These skills classes and the uniqueness and high quality of the projects created are exactly what appealed to Christiansen, who is responsible for organizing activities that will appeal to the residents in the Heritage Highlands active retirement community.

Heidi Yribar, Founder and CEO of Antsy Nancy said she is honored to align with The Highlands. “I’m thrilled to have connected with Kelsey. The opportunity to lock-in a long-term, recurring program for Antsy Nancy is a huge win,” said Yribar. “Although I have had several customers from Marana and Oro Valley, the majority of Antsy Nancy’s in-person customers are Foothills’ residents. It’s wonderful to introduce Antsy Nancy to a new market.”

Antsy Nancy will provide instruction and materials for two classes each month in the 2022 calendar year, with exception of the summer months, when only one class per month will be offered. The benefit to The Highlands members is an opportunity to take an Antsy Nancy class without the standard class registration fee. “Kelsey has put together a very special package for The Highlands members so the only fee they are responsible for is the cost of materials,” said Yribar.

Antsy Nancy kicked off the program with an introductory class in December that sold out within the first hour! “The class, ‘how to create a holiday ornament wreath,’ was such a hit, Kelsey booked a second class that also sold out,” said Yribar. “It’s the most rewarding experience in the world to get validation that Antsy Nancy, which was just an idea twelve months ago, is not only viable, but desirable. The feedback from customers has been absolutely amazing.”
