Free craft demonstration
The Craft Shoppe located in the Quirk Cultural Center, 1201 Grant Ave., is hosting a free craft demonstration on March 28 at 6:30 pm. The item to be taught is the fashion mesh wreath which can be made for any holiday or season. The Craft Shoppe is the perfect home for handmade projects to display for sale. It is the quiet secret consignment shop that people boast about when looking for something handmade and unique.
The Shoppe is looking for new crafters or artists who make anything from jewelry to florals to rugs to cards to their own unique creation. Attendees may price their items knowing which they choose: 1) 90 percent return on their merchandise that is sold when they volunteer to clerk the shop two shifts a month or 2) 70 percent return on their merchandise that is sold when they cannot volunteer at all.
