Starting School at RPS

I always loved the fall. It always feels like the season of possibilities. New grade, new books, new teachers, new clothes. Anything is possible! We have had a wonderful summer at Rock Paper Scissors - meeting fantastic people and being surrounded by creativity. Who could ask for more? Well, it is the season of possibilities so we are doing more!

The kids are heading back to school and you can, too! Rock Paper Scissors offers a slew of fantastic workshops and, we promise, no homework! Come in and try your hand at something new or refresh those dusty skills. Learn to sew or make your own cards or stamp metal jewelry. Make a quick costume for the kids' Halloween or decorate your table this holiday season or find out what that steampunk jewelry is all about. Or, maybe, just grab a cup of coffee and join our embroidery group. Whatever you want to try, we guarantee it will be creative and informal and fun! Check the website for class schedules and stop in or call to register.

Speaking of new possibilities, wait until you see what's coming in! We have luscious new fabrics from a new company called Anthology fabrics. The colors are gorgeous and the quality is perfect. Great grown-up prints in fabulous fall colors. Nest from Valorie Wells is here - in cottons and cords. Beautiful whimsical prints in many colors. And we have Laurie Wisbrun's Tufts & Tweets in a deep orchid that is to die for, as well as her new kids' line called Urban Circus - graphic giraffes and elephants and stripes, oh my! We have flannels and cords in a bunch of cool colors and prints, perfect for cozy apparel for the upcoming winter months.

We have added a new stamp company to our inventory, starting with these fantastic Alice stamps fashioned after the classic Tenniel illustrations. Love them!!! Soon to come in will be paper from Pink Paislee and Basic Gray and Graphic45 and Teresa Collins, just to name a few. We have expanded the paper area and can't wait to get the new orders in! We should also have more Hero Arts stamps and fabric ink and all sorts of embellishments really soon. Check back often!

We keep refilling our little treasure dishes with new Rock stuff all the time. We are working hard to expand our selection of both beading basics and findings, as well as vintage goodies all the time. We have lots of fun new ideas floating around from metal stamping to steampunk, as well as goodies coming in for the sparkly holiday season events.

Welcome back, everyone, from your summer vacations. We all hope they were wonderful and relaxing. Stop in and see us soon! We love chatting and sharing ideas!

Until next time,

  1. Hello Beth,
    How wonderful it was to meet you today at your beautiful store. I was so happy to come and meet you all. The store is beautiful and full of great energy. I am only sadden that I will be leaving in a few month to relocate in NC. I sure hope that they have one near me when I get there. I fear I may have to create my own supply store he he he he he. I was impressed with all the different fabrics and papers that I could use for my collage. I am so glad that you open this wonderful inspirational place. I wish you all the very best!
