Information on choosing colors for our homes, making a beef stew parfait and using scraps to make quilts will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and noon Thursday.

Latriece Brooks is an interior decorator, and she will talk about choosing colors considering the geography of where we live, the architecture of our homes and most of all, our personal choice. Her business is Brooks Interiors in Clovis.

Teresa Wagner of DairyMax will demonstrate making a child-friendly and creative recipe that is low-cost and easy to make and looks as good as it tastes. It’s a beef stew parfait — and it really is served in a parfait glass. She’s from Fort Worth, Texas.

Evelyn Terhune will demonstrate how to make use of sewing scraps by making a cute children’s quilt, a senior citizens’ lap quilt or even a wall hanging by using decorative stitching. Her business is Ozark Crafts in Gilbert, Ark.

Information on pin weaving, memory and Alzheimer’s disease, and making giant cookies will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” at noon Tuesday and 2 p.m. Saturday.

Not only will Pat de Santis explain the basics of pin weaving, she’ll show what can be done with it. She represents Wm. E. Wrights Co. in West Warren, Mass.

Registered dietitian Pat Baird will talk about memory and Alzheimer’s disease, which affects many families. She represents Nutrapharm Inc. and lives in Greenwich, Conn.

Nancy Siler of Wilton Industries Inc. in Woodridge, Ill., says for a quick, inexpensive and easy way to celebrate any occasion, just bake a giant round cookie and decorate it — and she’ll show how to do this.
