Yours truly here has written a new craft project book, so I’m having a book release party and you’re all invited!
The book is called Craft Your Stash—Transforming Craft Closet Treasures into Gifts, Home Décor & More. It’s filled with lots of crafty tips, techniques and tutorials. There are creative project ideas for everyone – greeting cards, papercrafts, sewing projects, wallhangings, ornaments and more. The instructions are beginner-friendly – you can follow my design choices or go rogue and make it yours.
We’ll be at the Concord Public Library on Saturday, September 20th from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. I’ll be making a short presentation at 1:00pm, plus there will be refreshments, a free make-n-take craft table, and my projects from the book on display. Signed books will be for sale, with part of the proceeds being donated to Friends of the Library to support their community programs.
An RSVP is required – click here first and then bring the family – hope to see you!
