Beat the Winter Blues!

We have taken a pounding here in the Northeast this winter and we are all pretty tired of it!  Snow, ice, rain, wind, repeat.  Will it ever end?

Here are Rock Paper Scissors, we have decided to beat those winter blues by running some new workshops.  They are fun and free and all blue!

We will start with our little girl Effie.  Is she too stinkin' cute or what?  Join Beth as we stitch along to Heather Bailey's Effie & Ollie Pattern and create this adorable elephant.  It is a perfect little pattern, so cleanly done.  For our little sample in the store, pictured here, we blew the pattern up to 150%.  You can choose to make the "Ollie" version if you want.  He has a star or heart appliqued on his side where Effie has the little flowers in her hair.  What a perfect little gift for a pregnant friend or your kids.  Or you can save her for yourself!

We will run two sessions of this workshop, one on March 1st at 6:30pm and the second on March 2nd at 11:00am.  Previous sewing experience required.

Our second workshop in the Beat the Winter Blues series is making this gorgeous dish of paper flowers and spheres.  Join Aubrey to learn how to fold and wrap and magically create these gorgeous flowers pictured above and below.  Wouldn't these look perfect in the middle of your table or on your mantle?  Chase Old Man Winter away when you transform simple paper into fabulous creations!

We will run this workshop on March 11th at 11:00am.  Beginner and experienced paper crafters are welcome!

We can give you a supply list for the workshops or you can purchase one of our supply bags.  Our bags will contain all you need to make one elephant or a bunch of flowers and spheres.  And you guessed it - everything will be in delectable shades of blue!  And the supply bags will be 15% off. 

Class sizes are limited so call the store to register today!  And, did we mention that the workshops are free?  Just let us know if you will be purchasing a supply bag from us.

So join us as we Beat those Winter Blues!  Yup, chase them right back up to the North Pole because we are so done!

See you soon!

Beth & Aubrey
