During the month of March, we encourage our friends, family and customers to find time to craft! It is National CRAFT Month! You can join us for any of our wonderful classes (see our calendar here), or you may also come in every Saturday in March for fun Make 'N Take Crafts and Free Demonstrations. Here's a list of the activities on Saturdays.

Every Saturday we’ll have a new program, called Bead Blast from 1:00-3:00pm. Come and learn some new techniques to use with beads, wire, leather and metal. Discover what you can do with the tools you already own, such as embossing folders, hammers, pliers, etc. Then watch what you can do with some tools you’ve never used before. We will get your creative juices flowing!
