Celebrating Earth Day All Month Long!

Ok so Earth Day is Wed. April 22nd! There is so much we want to do to celebrate we're going to have 2 work shops, a trunk show and 10% off all sales the 1st 2 weeks of April.

The 10% discount really has to do with the crazy tax increase that goes into effect April 1st. If you haven't heard sales tax is increasing to 9.25%! Crazy, right?! Well we figured why not give our customers 10% off April 1-15th, to help ease the pain.

That brings us to the 1st "Make & Take Workshop" in April. "Turn Your Old Tee Into A Cute Tote!" On Thurs., April 9th from 6pm-9pm, join us for this event. Kim Kessler had so much fun doing the Apron Workshop she came up with one more!
Do you have a favorite T-shirt-preferably used with maybe a stain or a tear that you just can’t throw away, but you can’t wear it either? Well that is your blank canvas for this workshop. You can cut it, sew it, twist it, and turn it. You can deconstruct it, you can reconstruct it. Recycle it, resuscitate it, refashion it, and re-invent it.
It is the perfect place to start, and Kim Kessler can help you create that perfect bag. It will be something unique (and cheap) and your old Tee will continue to be with you to fulfill many new adventures.
Cost $25. If you don't bring in a tee we will provide one for an additional $5.
Perfect workshop for all ages and requires minimum sewing. See the cute tote below!

Workshop #2 is on Earth Day, Wed. April 22nd from 5pm-9pm! "Decorate a Flowerpot and Plant Something"! This workshop will be led by amazing artist, Steph Calvert of Hearts & Laserbeams! She will provide the flowerpot, all the materials to decorate/paint your flowerpot and seedlings to plant something beautiful later. This is a great gift idea for Mother's Day coming up on May 10th! Materials and fee is just $15! All ages welcome! See 1st picture of sample flowerpots.

We will also be hosting a trunkshow for Hearts & Laserbeams new line of goodies featuring her "Underwater Critters" that same evening. Her new line features everything from blank recipe cards, pocket mirrors, coasters, notecards and more. Great gift ideas at awesome prices!

Hope to see you at one or all off our events next month! Happy Earth Month!

Lots of Aprons!

Thanks to everyone who attended our apron workshop and especially to Kim. We had a very skilled 6 year old who made a skull apron. Check out some pix above. There were some who couldn't make it to the workshop, so if anyone out there is still interested come sign up at the store. If enough people sign up Kim will reschedule the apron workshop.
We should have a schedule for future workshops up in the next week.
xxoo - The Kids...
