Create your own spectacular Halloween mask!

Next Friday (10/22, 3-4PM), we’ll gather to make one-of-a-kind Halloween masks.  This is a great family activity, and it will help get you started in fashioning your Halloween costume.  We’ll supply you with everything you’ll need to make silly, scary, or stunning masks.

If you’d like to sign up for the class, please visit our website:, e-mail us:, or call: 201/944-3311.


Carve a Pumpkin That’s Squirrel-proof!

I can’t tell you how many complaints I’ve heard about rabid squirrels destroying people’s poor pumpkins.  Well, we’ve found a way to foil those pesky critters: Faux Pumpkins!  They look just like the real thing, but they’ll never get moldy & they don’t taste great either!  We have 4 spots open for the Faux Pumpkin Carving Class (Family-Friendly).  Enrollment is open until Thursday.

Faux Pumpkin Carving ~ $25 ~ 6 spaces

Saturday, October 16 from 2 to 3:30PM

We’ll supply you with a very realistic-looking faux pumpkin, and we’ll teach you how to carve that baby so that you can enjoy it year after year, and no one will be the wiser.

What could be better than a cool mobile? A mobile made from shrink plastic and chopsticks, that’s what! The Tuesday Craft Club crew spent yesterday afternoon busily drawing away. Next week, we’ll assemble their mobiles. These will look so great hanging in the kids’ rooms!

More fun at Craft Club…

The kids had fun making these pretty decoupaged pencil tins last week at Craft Club.  They were skeptical about how they would turn out since they were covered in white glue when they left.  I think they’ll be surprised when they see how lovely they now look!  This turned out to be a perfect kids craft.  All ages enjoyed it.

Tomato pincushions make everyone happy…

Roz & Amy like their pincushions!

Special thanks to Martha Stewart and her new book, MARTHA STEWART’S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SEWING AND FABRIC CRAFTS.   We had a swell time making these adorable tomato pincushions.

Bring a little beach home with you

We thought it might be fun to bring some of the beach back home. So, on July 15th from 2:15-3:15PM, kids are invited to sign up to make these cute beachy picture frames.
