Saturday October 16
Crafters' Garage Sale! The store opens an hour early at 9:00 for this event. All sales in the garage sale are CASH only. This is a great way to collect supplies at a discount price if you're just starting the hobby.

If you're a veteran and are running out of room at home for all your supplies, consider purging the surplus as a seller at the garage sale. Just call the store by Oct 12 to get a vendor number. Drop off your items on Oct 15 and then collect your proceeds afterwards. You get to spend the day relaxing while the store volunteers sell your items. Proceeds can be collected in two ways: 50% of your sales in cash OR 100% of your sales in store merchandise.

The Canon representative will also return on Oct 16 11 - 3 PM to demonstrate her fantastic photo printers. Bring your memory cards and have her print out a photo for free.

Everyone will make the wonderful snowflake card complete with glimmer and starburst. Attendees will use a Gemlet (an acrylic tea bag tile guide) and mini stamps to complete a unique medallion for the other card. You will have your choice of three different designs (Halloween, Christmas or Ladybug). The fold is so easy and versatile that you won't want to miss this class.
