Newsletter #9 October 2016
Hello and we hope your Fall has started off well and happy. The shop has been hopping with folks coming in to learn from friends and teachers as well as enjoy each other’s company. We have so many new fabrics and more coming in about every 2 weeks. We are also now stocking fun specialty accent buttons and full small bottles of accent buttons/glitz/beads at an amazing price
We would like to thank the Colville Piecemaker’s and Ocean Shores Sea Pal’s for having us as vendors at their shows. What a great experience from these very welcoming and supportive guilds as well as all the folks who came by our booth while enjoying the shows.
We have booked several new classes that have been requested. Please take a close look to see what you have been looking for. We are also stating a Fun New Group “Kids Club!” Will be the 4th Saturday of every month 1-4 and is just $7.50 per kid. Ages 7 and up please. Each month the kids will make a fun and useful item. Just to let you know Octobers project will be a special and safe Trick or Treat bag.
Speaking of Trick or Treat, we will be taking part in the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce “Pumpkin Lane”. This is a fun & safe time for the kids to trick or treat in the day light, enjoy a Hay ride, Meet Recycle Man (who will be in our parking lot!). When you come by our shop you will go through our “Trick or Treat Cave” fill with fun decorations, folks in costume, a little adventure and goodies too. *Please note* our cave will NOT be SCARY, we are hoping to make it special for the younger kids, but have a couple of things planned for the older kids as well as the parents accompanied by their kids or grandkids.
