The Craft Box News & Happenings ~ May 2018
How is your May going? Well, we hope! The weather fluctuates between record highs and lows, plus snow and rain! Don’t you love Colorado weather! This is the beginning season for graduations, weddings, and spring sports. So much to do, but we hope you are taking time for yourself with your favorite craft. We always have something new coming in, so please stop by to find what you’ve been looking for!
All stamp sets are 20%. Also, check out our general craft area for discounts on specific items.
All May appointments are been filled. We will be taking appointments again in July, so please check back for the date and time. Thank you for your patience and persistence with our new system. If you do not get an appointment, but have items that are in high demand (quilt shop quality fabric and good quality yarn) we will put you on a waiting list. Our previous guidelines still apply: a limit of 3 boxes or large bags per drop off, we will not pay for items that smell like moth balls, smoke or mustiness, or items covered in pet hair.
Please, no dumping or donations left at the building after hours or without our knowledge.
Volunteer Opportunity: Quilts of Valor is looking for volunteers to help sew quilts for veterans and service members. Quilts of Valor is a non-profit foundation whose goal is to cover ALL physically or psychologically wounded service members with a Freedom Quilt, honoring them for their sacrifices, and providing the comfort and healing a quilt can bring.
Our local Quilts of Valor group meets in The Craft Box Classroom the third Thursday of each month, from 10:00am – 12:00pm, to work on quilts that will be donated to the Quilts of Valor Foundation. They are looking for more people interested in joining them in this great cause. Quilters of all skill level are welcome, from beginner to master! There is no need to bring your own sewing machine, as all of the necessary supplies and patterns are provided…they just need you!
