Emily’s Papercrafts Small Bites of Fun

farmer’s Markets and the Newsletter

Saturday was a big day for me.  It was my first Farmer’s Market in Kent and I had a great time meeting up with those who have previously taken my classes and those who wanted some special orders.  All in all, it was a great day!

Then, as some of you know, it was also the day that I sent out my very first newsletter by email.  The name of my newsletter is “Refreshing Rain” and it can be seen on Facebook under my page on a previous post (there are some Father’s Day card ideas along with instructions to make the Independence Day star).  I will be sending the newsletter out quarterly so as not to junk up your inbox. Occasionally I will send out a new pattern or idea I have come up with in the between months. If you would like to be added to the newsletter email, contact me on my website.

This week I have already received a second order from the Seattle Space Needle for more cards and wall hangings.  That was fast!  Don’t forget to look up some of my items for sale in the Space Needle Gift Shop when you are downtown Seattle!

June 14th will be a fun class of making your own quilled wall hanging – Don’t miss this class, save a seat now by clicking HERE. (Class checkout is at the bottom of the page).  While you are there, check out all my class times this summer and let’s get creating!

Tip for the week:  A torn end of quilling paper blends in easier than a cut edge.

 it’s officially farmer’s market season!

Hi Everyone!  This Saturday I will be at the Kent Farmer’s Market from 9-2.  Then, on Sunday at the Ballard Market from 10-3.

I am pretty excited for the Market season to open so I can get out there and meet more of you and share about what everyone is working on.

Stop by my booths this weekend and say, “hello,” I look forward to seeing you!  Looking for a Father’s Day or graduation present?  I may have just what you are looking for! I also have some new summer designed cards that are really fun.  Come check them out!

Directions to the markets are under my “about” tab and under “shows.”

P.S. I will be sending out a  quarterly newsletter so stay tuned and check your inbox tomorrow!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Remembering my grandfather and grandmother who served in WW2 today and my brother who is currently in active service as I quilled this star last night. Thank you to all who served and those that  still are helping to keep our country free.

Look for my email newsletter coming out in June.  Let me know if you’d like to receive it.  There will be lot’s of good things in there plus a free pattern of the star pictured for you to use for Independence Day or wherever your creativity takes you!

Wholesale!

It is with great excitement that I now have two retail locations carrying my handmade papercrafts! The Seattle Public Library in downtown Seattle has been carrying curly balls and wall hangings for about a year now and have recently added greeting cards. The newest location is the Space Needle gift shop at the Space Needle! They will be carrying Space Needle greeting cards and wall hangings.

If you know of a retail location that would be interested in carrying a unique line of handmade papercrafted items, please let me know!

Spring 2017 Classes are here!

I’ve been working on lining up some amazing spring classes targeted at a variety of ages. I’m still working on lining up a story and origami time at Little Spruce in Maple Valley. Otherwise, I think the others are all set. Check out the full line-up on my classes tab!

I have the perfect way of helping you make a unique Valentine gift for a loved one or even just for yourself! I’ve several classes in the next couple of weeks, three in Maple Valley, one in Normandy Park, and one in Kent. Check out the “About-Classes” tab for more information!

More Classes

My daughter has gotten this joke going among us at home of saying “More Frozen” whenever she encounters something from the movie “Frozen” and I’m feeling the same delight to declare: “More Classes!!” I’ve expanded the number and locations of classes that I’m offering the next two months. Registration for the classes varies by location and hosting facility, but when in doubt, email me (emily@emilyspapercrafts.com) and I’ll help you navigate the registration process. If you would like a similar class but closer to your home, please let me know and we’ll see what we can work out.
