Hello Crafters!

For those of you who missed out on the action last Spring, we've decided to have a yet another customized glass pendant necklace workshop.

Add a little handmade pop of colour to your drab winter wardrobe or create a one of a kind piece for someone you love.

You'll leave this workshop with 2 small and 1 large glass pendants (and will have an opportunity to purchase additional supplies should you be so inspired).

The cost is $40 and includes all materials as well as snacks and refreshments (translation: wine) and a $5 gift card to Blackbird.

For this one we've got 12 spots available.
Cash or cheque only (cheque payable to Colleen Hewitt).
$10 deposit or credit card required at booking.

If you'd like to join us Wednesday March 30th from 6pm - 9pm please let us know by replying to this email or calling 256-9669. Postcard attached.

Hope to see you soon!

"EAT" Fabric Covered Letters Workshop

When you've got a new baby at home, you watch a lot of TV.
At least I do.

One of my new favourite shows has to be Cougar Town.
And not just because there isn't a single scene without a huge glass of red wine in someone's hand.

I love the home decor on that show.
Long story long, THAT'S the inspiration behind our next workshop.
On the wall in Courtney Cox's character's kitchen, are the letters EAT (like we needed a reminder).
I can't tell if they're painted, or fabric covered, but regardless, they're super cute.

So we're going to make them.
With the help of Dutch Girl Textiles (our craft show's main sponsor for Spring) we're making 3-dimensional fabric covered letters (from scratch) that spell the word "EAT".
Dutch Girl herself is going to pop by the shop at the beginning of the course and you'll be able to pick your own fabrics for this latest creative masterpiece.

Fun right?

The class will run Wed Mar 16th from 6pm to 9pm at Blackbird (79 Mill Street, Almonte)
Cost is $45 and includes all materials, supplies, snacks and a $5 Blackbird gift card.
We have 10 spots to fill and require a $10 deposit (either cash or credit card #) to hold your spot.
Participants must be 16 years or older.
Cash or cheque (made out to Colleen Hewitt) only.

Please reply to this email or give us a call at 613-256-9669 if you're interested in joining us!
