DIY Home & Beauty Workshop!

DIY Home & Beauty Workshop!

What a fabulous workshop!

This surpassed our previous DIY workshop by leaps and bounds — which we thought was pretty spiffy in its own right!

The presenters were knowledgeable and topics flowed well with one another. Those attending were eager and attentive. At a couple of points we counted a dozen folks around the tables! The format of back to back workshops worked well in allowing folks to come and go with each segment as their schedule allowed without disrupting the flow. Not only was the attendance good, the presenters covered some really awesome stuff! For those of you that missed it, you missed out, for sure. We are already planning our next one! Sorry for all the exclamation points – we are just so excited! Overall, VERY pleased!

Thanks to everyone for coming out. And, a special thanks to Joetta, Chrystal, Rebecca and Kat for doing the presentations. You were very informative!

Hope to see YOU attending our NEXT workshop! Keep an eye on the event calender for upcoming events.

Man, oh man, have we ever been busy planning our “Whale of a Tale” of an event — it’s gonna be a whopper!  One bite at a time, that is how you eat a whale, I keep telling myself.  We have been working hard and getting the word out all over town and beyond!  I am so excited to see things coming together and getting more excited with each passing day.  Our final week brings us to the finishing touches – our banners and signs have been delivered and look great!

We have some exciting artisans and craftspersons that are joining us! Everything from jewelry and quilts to beautiful privacy stained glass, doll clothes and tutu’s for your little darlings and handmade soap and household cleaning products to clean up the aftermath of her Princess Party at the local event planning center!  I am truly pleased with the quality of our vendors – too many to list!  There will be a Vendor Directory provided.  You’ll be able to find your favorite artisans and make note of others you found to add to your list of favorites!
Other fun things to note are that several vendors, as well as local businesses, are donating items to raffle; there will also be a 50/50 pot; and a bake sale of goooooood ole fashion home baked yummy goodness!  Something for all ages — even crafts for the kiddos!  Concessions will be available.  
Hope to see many of you with a friend or three in tow visiting us at the Library and Community Center on Saturday, October 15th.  We will be open for business at 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  This is a one day event, so don’t miss out!
Come out and support your local artisans — your library will thank you for it!
