Word on the Street - March 29

Oh boy.  It's a busy time for all of us at Locust Street Crafts these days.

But hey, check it out!  After last weekend's display planning, one of Liz's friends tipped her off to a reasonably priced vinyl sign making company, and Liz started communication with them on getting a sign made for LSC.  In record time, it all came together!  Thanks to 24hbanner, Locust Street Crafts now has a fabulous sign with our updated logo, in one of our signature colors:

Liz is also trying out a couple new craft prototypes, hopefully to have a few new products ready in time for the first LSC sale of the year coming up in May.


Oh hey, Locust Street Crafts will be at the Flint Handmade Spring Craft Market on Saturday, May 4 from 10-4, in the beautiful Masonic Temple in downtown Flint.  Come check it out and say hi to us!  Admission is only $1.

Erica got the short end of the stick this week, getting hit with laryngitis, allergies, and a plethora of other illnesses that include tissues and chicken soup. She figured that now was as good a time as any to get started on the quilt she has been meaning to make. You heard right, Erica is attempting quilting. 
 Like any good project craft project, math was involved

Triangles. Equations. Frustration.
 Then ironing, organizing, and cutting. There's an element of danger to these tasks... Okay, maybe not the organizing. But irons are hot! And rotary cutters are dangerous--just ask Samantha!
This picture is too hot to handle!
So smooth

Lookin' sharp!
What Erica didn't realize is that when she started cutting on Saturday around 4, she would be cutting squares until midnight. Cutting fabric is the preparation step for quilting, and as many of our crafty friends know, the preparation is often the most time-consuming step in a project.

Luckily, Xena was nice enough to keep Erica company.

After many hours of cutting and many attempts to lure nosy cats away from the cutting action, she ended up with a pile of squares that do not match, but will eventually be sewn together.

Aside from quilting, Erica was also featured in All Things Target, a blog dedicated to informing its readers about coupon match-ups and deals going on at Target. All that time clipping coupons is starting to pay off!

Sam legitimately does not know where her time has gone. You know where it hasn't gone? To crafting. And what crafting she has done, she hasn't taken a single picture of. To make it up to you, here's a picture of Henry yelling at her:

Hey lady! Stop taking pictures of your cats and go craft something! You've got a craft sale in May, dummy!

Did you guys know we'll be at a craft sale in May? The Flint Handmade Spring Craft Market on Saturday, May 4 from 10-4, in the beautiful Masonic Temple in downtown Flint. And admission is only $1.

Because we might be a little excited about it.
