CraZy TACKz Event: Portland, Oregon

Hello Friends,

It has been almost a month since the last post.  Where does time fly to?  Summer is almost upon us and it is the season to plant and toil.  Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Week-end!

Gordie Murphy, CraZy TACKz Inventor
The 9th of June (one week from this coming Saturday), we will be at Fabric Depot in Portland for a CraZy TACKz event.  Our inventor, Gordie Murphy, will be making an appearance and will probably be happy to sign a few boxes of his new, patented invention, CraZy TACKz.  You can say you saw them here first!

We have put together a Make-N-Take project featuring CraZy TACKz.  I am attaching a few pictures of sample projects we will be showing at the event to feature a fun and easy application for using CraZy TACKz in a wall hanging or for wall decor'.

The flowers and shapes are made from Chenille stems.  There is a little more technique involved to get the final result and we will be giving our customers a chance to learn the technique and apply it to their own creation.

There will be something for adults and for kids.  The following are some samples of what we will be showing at the June event.  Come and join us if you are within driving distance!  I will post once more with details as it gets closer.

These shapes are made from the chenille stems and the decorated Tackz are attached to the board.  The hooks on the Tackz can be used to hang jewelry, keys, mementos, etc.  Below are some more ideas using the chenille stems.

The round posies shown above will be the featured Make-N-Take at our event.  Come and make one for free!  Take home some new ideas as well! Below are a few more samples.

There ya go!  That is it for today.  Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 9th, 2012.  
Hope to see you there!

Happy Crafting!
