May 2010 Newsletter

Summer is almost here! The weather is finally warming up and the days are getting longer… that means more time to craft right?

May Craft Night
Our next Craft Night will be held on Friday, May 7th from 5:00pm-6:30pm. Do you have a lot of wood stamps that are gathering dust because you prefer being able to see where your image will be stamped? Well, we have a solution for you… join us at Craft Night to find out how to un-mount your wood mounted stamps and then re-mount them onto clings so that you can use them with your acrylic blocks! To help you transition to cling mounted stamps, we will be giving 10% off on EZ Mount on Craft Night ONLY.

We will also be sharing some storage solutions that we’ve discovered works for us. If you have a storage solution that works for you, we’d love to hear about it at Craft Night! We are hoping that everyone will bring ideas with them to help fellow crafters organize their craft supplies.

We will continue to host the Card Drawing again at Craft Night, so bring one handmade card to enter. Same rules apply, so if you have any questions, please contact the store for more info. The more the merrier!

New Arrivals:

New CC’s Designs are here! More Swiss Pixies are fluttering in and will flutter out very quickly! These designs are so cute that they will sell out soon, so come in for best selection.

Class Kits:

Missed a class you really wanted to take? Can’t make it to any classes on weekends? A great alternative to attending a class is purchasing a class kit! Our instructors will often make extra class kits for those who were unable to attend their classes during scheduled times. If you are interested in a class that we’ve already taught, just ask about a class kit. If we don’t already have one in stock, we can make one for you and let you know when its ready. Class kits contain an instruction sheet and materials needed to make the project- you may need to provide some of your own supplies like pens, tape, scissors, trimmer, etc. Kit prices vary so please inquire within. Like classes, kits are cash only please.

Likewise, if there is a particular project you are interested in learning, let us know and we may create a class based on your request! Many of our classes are based on special requests by our regular students, so please let us know what you want to learn!
