February 2010 Newsletter

January has come and gone so quickly! We have been busy getting used to the new system and updating the store’s look. Please stop in if you haven’t seen our new samples yet. We also have a lot of new papers and stamps from the new Hero Arts catalog. More items are expected in soon, so check the blog or stop in to see what’s new.

February Craft Night
Our Craft Nights are becoming very popular! We are happy to be getting so much positive feedback on this event and happy to see new faces each time. The next Craft Night will be held on Friday, February 5th from 5:00-6:30pm. Jenny will be demonstrating how to use the Zutter Bind-It-All machine. This machine helps to make your binding projects professional looking! Come and see how easy it is to use and get some project ideas. There is no charge to attend this event.

We will again host a Card Drawing at Craft Night and hope you will participate! Participation is voluntary, but everyone who has participated seemed to be very happy with the exchange! Since Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, we thought it would be fun for everyone who plans on participating to submit a Valentine’s Day card. Please bring your card with you to Craft Night instead of dropping it off early. We would hate to lose your card, so please bring it with you that night.

If you have any questions about Craft Night or the Card Drawing, please contact the store for more details.

Can you believe that this February will make one year since we’ve started our blog? This year sure went by fast! To celebrate, we will be offering up some blog candy (giveaway) so check the blog this month to see when it is posted and how you can win.

Reward System:
Just a friendly reminder that we will be discontinuing our old punch card rewards system, since we have installed a new computer system that is able to track your purchases. Please redeem filled or partially filled cards from the old system by Saturday, February 27th. Members with partially filled cards will receive a pro-rated discount based on the number of punches that are accumulated on the card. Under the new system, you will receive reward points for qualifying purchases. If you have questions about the new system, please contact the store.

Spring Cleaning Sale:
Can you believe that spring is just around the corner? That means its time for our semi-annual Spring Cleaning Sale Event! Time to start looking at all your craft items and get rid of the ones that you don’t need or want. The sale will be held sometime in March. The official date will be announced soon, so check the blog for any updates on the drop off dates and other instructions.

February Classes:
Woo Hoo! It’s been awhile since we’ve offered any classes at the store, so we are very excited to tell you about 3 new classes coming up this month!

Valentine’s Card Punch Class:

Did you make your Valentine’s Day cards yet? If not, here’s a great class to learn how to make two different Valentine’s Day cards using a variety of punches. The new Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punches are quickly becoming a customer favorite! Don will show you how to make two Valentine’s Day cards featuring a lot of different punches.

Date: Friday, February 12, 2010-01-30
Time: 4:30pm-6:30pm
Cost: $10
Instructor: Don
Supplies: Please bring an adhesive (double stick tape or glue).

Copic Blending Class:

You asked for it! We are so excited to finally offer a Copics Blending Class! We’ve all fallen in love with these pens and can’t wait to show you their potential. You will learn 2 blending techniques in this class and will leave with two cards. Due to the personal attention needed, class size is limited to 4 students. Due to limited size, we will offer additional classes in the coming months.

Please note that students who sign up for this class must bring with them their own Copic markers. No class markers will be provided in this class and we do not recommend borrowing from other students. Once you pay for your class, you will be provided with a list of colors to bring with you to class. These are just recommended colors, but if you have colors you prefer working with, you may bring those colors instead. Students should also bring double stick tape and scissors with them to class.
