Hi…  Just wanted to let you know about the upcoming items that we have going on here in the shop for this week and next.
******************************
New Product!
Wow, spring has sprung and so have our artists!  We love it…  There is a LARGE amount of new products in the store.  Seems that everyday a new artist comes our way.  Everything from pottery, jewelry, watercolors, purses, etc.
******************************

May Sale!

Many of our artists have made a point to mark some of their goodies down!  Just in time for Mothers Day, Graduations, Weddings and all that comes along this time of year.  So don’t delay in checking these items out as they won’t be around for long I am sure.

******************************

Punch Cards are now in!

The punch cards are completed & have arrived!  These make the perfect gifts for classes, yoga sessions, sewing lounge hours.  So be sure to ask the next time you are in for yours…

******************************
Therapy!
Due to the extreme beautiful weather, we are going to post-pone Therapy sessions until the snow falls again!  Who wants to be inside when we could all be OUT doing fun things with out having to wear a coat!  🙂  So keep your eyes peeled for more on this in the future.

******************************

Extra Fabric to donate!

Thank you,  Thank you, Thank you to all who donated material for the lap blanket project for the Fairbanks Alzheimer’s Association.  It was such a pleasure to have so many choices of color & texture to work with.  And as you know, many hands make light work!  BUT that has also left us with an inordinate amount of left over fabric.

Do you know of a cause that is in need of some material?  If so, please email us or call us and let us know so we can contact them.  We would dearly LOVE to share the wealth that we received with this project!
******************************
Hat-Attack! (A day dedicated to crocheting/knitting hats for cancer patients)

Saturday May 9th from 12-4 p.m.

Who:  Anyone interested in joining who can knit or crochet!  Bring your self, a friend, a relative and enjoy a day of hat making. Can’t knit or crochet?  Come and hang out, eat snacks and LEARN how!  Or take a class before May 9th from one of our great teachers at the shop.

Details:  The shop, couches, chairs will be open for all warm bodies!  Please come and bring a snack if you want…  Should be a fun day!

Extras:  Can’t make it to the Hat-Attack but still want to help?  Feel free to drop off handmade hats at The Stash no later than May 31st.

Helpful hints:

  • An excellent source for patterns is www.headhuggers.org
  • Hats knit with brown fun fur are in demand.
  • For summer, any color fun fur is good.
  • Cotton hats for sleeping are desirable.
  • Make sure the yarn you use is SOFT!

For more information, please call The Stash at 457-8274.

Last summer, after we first opened our doors here at The Stash, we hosted our first Non-Profit here in Fairbanks!  This was the beginning of our monthly service projects called The Stash Lends a Hand!

The Stashettes hosted a Knit-a-thon for the Interior Alaska Cancer Association with Soroptimist.  Soroptimist International of Fairbanks is a group of professional women who work to improve the lives of women and children. The local group has an on-going project to knit/crochet hats for women who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy.

******************************
Yoga!

The adult yoga class will now be meeting on Thursdays from 6-7 p.m.  Please call ahead to RSVP so we can make sure we have you down on the list!

As of today…

We are looking at 47 blankets for our Reaching Out project for November!  I couldn’t be more pleased…  Then to top it off when I was at the mini-stashettes school today, one of the 4th grade teachers said that her class is working on MORE!  All they have to do is tie them off.

Woo Hoo!

Tomorrow we will be delivering the blankets, so I will post some pictures when we get them.

Happy Holidays…

Rock On Fairbanks…  🙂  We are a hopping place here at The Stash…  Yep we are up to 102 artists now!  Can you believe it???  The sound of that makes me so happy!

And another statistic for you, the blanket drive is growing every day…  We currently have 32 blankets as of today.  Sigh, that is some kind of good work Fairbanks!  Thanks for helping keep our seniors warm this winter…

Now don’t forget that we will be open at 8 a.m. on Friday, so you can get all your special (all local, all handmade) holiday gifts on the biggest shopping day of the year!  We will be open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. so come by and check us out!

We received our very first blanket donation today!  Woo Hoo…  The Northern Council of Aging is going to love it!

But I have to tell you the bar has been raised extremely high now.  🙂  The first one to walk through the door was a gorgeous handmade quilt!  Amazing… Such a generous gift!

Our hearts swelled with pride & love to know that some lucky person will be wrapping this little piece of goodness around themselves this winter.

Here it is:  (photo coming soon)

I wonder what will come in next….  Will it be yours?

Wrap it up!

The Stash has chosen North Star Council on Aging: Senior Center to help this month…  They are in need of blankets, and we aim to please!  So look around, do you have any extra blankets, quilts, afghans around that you are not using?  Are they in good condition and available to keep someone warm this winter?  How about your neighbors? 🙂   If so, please drop them off at The Stash.  (Actually if you could pass this message on to others too that would be a great help!) We will be collecting blankets the whole month of November, and presenting them on Friday, December 5th to the North Star Council on Aging.  We will put up our version of a thermometer (called a blanketometer) to ‘see’ if the temperature is rising on the quantity of blankets we receive!  Think we can do it?  We can with your help.
