Women's Showcase was a Hit!

We had a quite a large booth at Women's Showcase, and it was a hit! I just want to thank everyone that stopped by our booth and did some fun holiday make & takes. We had fun and hope you did too. Check out the Women's Showcase Photo Album on our Facebook page.

If you were at Women's Showcase and picked up a Class Calendar/Coupon the date listed under the description for Holiday Open House reads November 1st and it should be November 14th as it is listed on the calendar. Please make note of this change as we would love to have you stop by on Saturday November 14th for our Holiday Open House. I will be posting more information about it soon.

Coat Share

We are a drop off site for Coat Share. This event is sponsored by YFC's Abigail's Closet and the Central MN Community Foundation.

You can bring in gently used winter outer wear items that will be distributed to local schools and non-profits organizations. Donations will be accepted through November 2nd.

With the snow this weekend and today, my family went through our winter wear items and found lots of great things to donate. Thank you to everyone that donates.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Crafts Direct is helping raise awareness in the following ways:

1) T-Shirts: You may notice some of the employees at Crafts Direct wearing pink shirts on Fridays in October. A donation was collected for the Coborn Cancer Center, all the employees who donated, received a shirt to wear.

2) TV commercial: We have teamed with Charter to participate in the "Stop Breast Cancer for Life" campaign. For the next few weeks you'll probably see a few commercials.
We support the fight against Breast cancer and want to remind you that early detection can save lives!

3) Donations: Throughout the month of October we will also be collecting donations for the Coborn Cancer Center. When you make a donation, you can write your name on a paper that will then be displayed along with all the other wonderful people who have donated!

4) Think Pink: There is also an area by the registers with an assortment of pink merchandise for sale. A portion of the proceeds are donated to fight breast cancer.

Thanks for doing your part in the fight against breast cancer!
