New Thermofax Screens designed by Sarah Ann Smith for FOAW

How is it October already??

Where has this year/fall gone to?  We can't believe it ourselves.  Guess that shows how busy we have been trying to get it all done.  We even missed our own birthday!  We celebrated 9 years in business on September 15th.  We have been busy in the dye studio filling orders and producing stock to get us through our biggest shows of the year.  Now that they are here we don't quite know what to think. 

During that time.....we are excited to announce that we partnered up with Sarah Ann Smith to design some thermofax screens for us!  Her designs are now up online and they are the sale of the week.

Sale of the Week:  Sarah Ann Smith designed Thermofax Screens 10% off




Also we are pleased to announce our finalized schedule for our first ever Whimsies-To-Go event in Houston.  We are in Booth #144 and will be running 20 one hour make and takes/workshops throughout Festival.  Each workshop has a $10 kit fee so that we may provide you with everything you need!

Diane,

You can't sign up ahead of time. Seating will open up 15 minutes before the class time. Once the seats are full that's it. Planning will be key if there is one you really want to take. Schedules will be available in booth so you can plan accordingly.

Thanks,
Kristin
