Summertime Is Rock'in Hot At San Antonio's "Fun-To-Shop" Craft Mall!

Golly gee whiz, what a smoke'n hot summer we've had so far!  Yep, that's true, the weather has been unseasonably hot this month, but the events, classes, and shopping has been something to really write home about!  Everyone has been having a ball here these past 3 weeks, enjoying all the new items coming in and the COOL get-togethers!  This past Saturday, long time customer, vendor, and friend Pat Ausloss held her first crafting class ~ Basket Weaving!  It was amazing watching her work with those simple materials and how easily the crafters picked up the techniques.  Here she is showing them how to begin attaching the final trim...

 Although Joann has never weaved a basket before, she got into the rhythm in no time!

If you haven't taken one of our classes yet, you're missing out BIG TIME!  You'll not only have a load of fun, you'll get to learn something new and make new friends in the process.  Do check out the class schedule each month via our email Newsletter (subscribe via:, or, our website:

Speaking about something to write home about.... we're hosting our first Operation Write Home "Card Making Bee"!  These beautifully hand crafted cards that YOU make are sent to bases overseas for our troops to use to write home with!  This all day event is an open schedule, so you can drop by at your convenience and stay as long as you like, and make as many or few cards as you like.  We are providing all the materials, samples, and guidance, so don't worry about your "skill level", your cards will be beautiful and our troops will love getting them (FREE!) to write home to loved ones (which could be you!).  Do drop by this Saturday, June 25th, we'd love to have you.  And bring someone with you, they'll have a wonderful time too!  For more information about OWH and how they bless our troops while they're away from home, check them out at:

Well, until next time, be richly blessed!
