GIVEAWAY: Weekend Kits

Weekend Kits has been a longtime funky find! Over the years, Weekend Kits has continued to offer quality craft kits that cover many categories & appeal to crafters of all ages & skill sets. The biggest benefit of purchasing through Weekend Kits is that all the supplies can be found on one site versus wasting time driving around to multiple stores hunting for project supplies.

The new items section is a perfect example of the versatility & selection the site offers. There is a great selection of jewelry making kits for kids, as well as multiple quilt kits for beginners to name just a few. Weekend Kits also offers a large selection of Sublime Stitching embroidery patterns and plush animal sewing kits which I love! (Pictured: Klutz - Jewelry Making Kit for Kids - Dot Jewelry)

And, while it may seem way too early to start thinking about holiday crafting, December is less than six months away. This means that there is no better time than the present to start working on holiday projects. Thankfully, Weekend Kits makes it a bit easier with the numerous Christmas Craft Kits, such as the stocking kits and card making kits. (Pictured: Felt Pillow Kit - Christmas Craft - Colorful Tree)

I think it is so important to encourage the creativity in children. Weekend Kits makes it easy to provide youngsters with all the tools they need to complete a great project. The Beaded Bands Bracelet Kit by Klutz Jewelry is one of the site's best sellers. Order one today...and while you're at it, treat yourself to a project kit, too! Happy crafting everyone!!!

***********Updated Information!!!!!!!!!*******************
There are some big changes to this event, first of which is a change of venue! The organizers have decided to make this a more intimate event and also due to some scheduling conflicts with the hotel, they have chosen to keep the entire event at Whitworth Ranch Retreat. What this means is the cost has gone way down!

2 Days of classes are now 175.00 + tax per person
VIP package is now 600.00 + tax per person
This however also means, we no longer have a one day class option.
This event still includes lunches and beverages during the classes and the VIP guests still get the private dinner with Melissa Friday night and an exclusive class on that night as well.
Attendees are still getting the same value as far as product. Retail value for all the product, not including the class for the VIP attendees is over $250! For those of you that have already sent in payment, the difference will be refunded.
