Summer Rain

Hi all, 

What a summer? It feels more like October than July. Our customers are saying that they don't mind because they are indoors painting, scrapbooking, doing arts and crafts with the kids but in general making the most of the bad weather. 

We have been busy busy updating the website and adding products to it. We have now added two payment options for online shopping including paying direct with Laser, VISA, Mastercard and AMEX or payment via Paypal. Thanks for your patience. 

We are delighted that the Crafty Alley Shop has been invited to bring our shop along to to the Cork Crop this Sunday 20Th July.  For more information on the crop visit the Cork Croppers blog. 

Our next adult jewelery class is on August the 2ND at 12pm in the shop. Book now to avoid disappointment

The next children's workshops are on this Saturday in the shop. 

10AM Junior Glass Painting
12PM Junior Card Making. 

Children's classes cost €7.50 per class and adult classes cost €15 which include all materials. Classes normally last about an hour and a half. 

So enjoy the rest of July and keep up to date with the blog and website for more products and workshop updates.
