November Craft Weekend

Our November Make and Take Craft Weekend was a complete blast from the moment the ladies arrived on Friday evening until Sunday morning when they left. So sad it had to come to an end so soon! Our weekend in pictures (a lot of pictures!)...

Our awesome, amazing, funny, kind, full of laughs November Craft Weekend ladies!

This weekend was phenomenal, amazing, magnificent and way too short! We had some veteran crafters and newbies and they all killed the crafts we had for them! Everyone was so willing to help each other out and I believe we all left with new found friends. We had many first this weekend: sewing through the flat head of a pin without breaking a needle, sewing plastic on the inside of the bag, sewing the bag shut, and hot gluing a button to a behind! The memories and laughs we shared will forever have a place in my heart and the best thing is, these ladies are all so close I see some get together's in the near future, I hope! Thank you ladies.

If interested in coming to a Craft Weekend, we would love be your host and pamper you, check out Make and Take Craft Weekend. We will be adding more dates soon and we just added the April Craft Weekend which will coordinate with St. Louis Vintage Market Days! We are also offering a few Scrapbooking Weekends, we provide lodging, meals and snacks and you bring your supplies to have a whole weekend dedicated to scrapbooking!
