The week ahead
Monday sees Angela from AyVee Jewellery Design back in The Venue between 10am and 4pm demonstrating jewellery making techniques. This is a drop-in, drop-out session so please call in at your leisure. Angela is an experienced jewellery maker and will be able to answer any questions you might have.
Thursday is a Market Day this week, and the theme of this particular market will be "Ladies" - so if you are looking for a unique gift or card for a lady, or just fancy treating yourself then this is the place to be. All things female is the order of the day! We will be there in The Venue between 9.30am amd 5.00pm.
Saturday is our usual weekly Market Day in The Venue. We are there between 9.30am and 5.00pm with a selection of handcrafted gifts, cards and gluten-free food.
Here's a sneak peak of what you might see this week.
Also on Saturday we have our next "Krafty Kidz"event in the central mall of Manor Walks Shopping Centre, Cramlington. This will take place outside Boots and this time will be Minion themed.
Come along and try your hand at decorating minion biscuits!
We work closely with the management of Manor Walks and The Vue Cinema in Cramlington for many of our kids crafting events so there might even be some minion themed promotional goodies up for grabs!
We charge £1 per child for these events, and the money goes to our chosen charity for 2015, which is The Guide Dog Association
At the end of this event we will be drawing our minion themed raffle - get your ticket for a chance to win one of two cute little minion toys or a family ticket to The Vue Cinema in Cramlington to see the new film. Tickets are available from The Venue and cost £1 per strip. The proceeds from this also go to The Guide Dog Association.
Feedback from last week
Monday was skills demo day with Angela from AyVee jewellery. Unfortunately we forgot to take pics, but Angela had a good day - so good she is back again on Monday to repeat the experience.
Thursday was skills demo day with Mrs Charlie from Charlie Cards and Sheila from Sewing MANIA.
Sheila managed to finish something she has been working on for some time while she was there last week (in between talking to our visitors about patchwork and sharing her vast knowledge on the subject).
We also had three surprise visitors on Saturday when Irene, Alison and Yana called in to see us. Irene is blind and Yana is her gorgeous and well behaved guide dog - she chose Yana's name because it stands for "You Are Never Alone". Here are Irene and Yana drawing the raffle at our very successful coffee morning/afternoon tea event which we held on 14 March.
We enjoyed our day so much in March that we have plans to repeat it all over again in September and once again the proceeds will be to The Guide Dog Association - watch this space for more information!
Something New at Lev3l 3
Sheila has been working on embroidered cushion covers for some time and now has a set of three completed and ready for sale.
They really are beautiful and now grace her shelf in the window of The Venue.
They are priced individually but are available at a discounted price for the set of three. But she only has one set ......
At our market day on Saturday we introduced a new concept for Lev3l 3 Community Crafters. We now have a small number of "packages" available for sale. These packages are baby themed gift sets which contain items made by different crafters. Buying the items as a gift set package means a discounted price compared to buying each item individually.
Currently we only have one each of three of different packages available - but who knows - perhaps we will expand the range in the coming months. Watch this space for further news about gift sets!
