New Products

We just got a shipment from Magnetic Poetry that will certainly make great Christmas presents. In addition to those large upper and lower case sets we've had before, we received six themed Word Stamp sets in tins for Family & Friends; Vacation & Travel; Holidays & Events; Love & Romance; Dates & Seasons; and Kids. Something new... a T-Shirt Stamping Kit. What a great gift for a Tween!

In other news, signups for Jane Davies' classes next week (Nov. 4th-6th) are a bit slow, so get on the phone and take the opportunity to learn collage and painting techniques from a fabulous artist who is really fun to have in the classroom.

Catching up....

Wow, the blog is woefully out of date; however, we hope you're still interested in following us. When in doubt, visit www.queensink.com, where we post new products at least twice a week and announce upcoming classes as they are scheduled.

If you're on our email list, you learned from an email sent on Saturday that Patti is out of town enjoying a few classes and out-of-store inspiration. Meanwhile, back at the store... Lolly is having a sale (through Wednesday), so come on in, bring cash or your checkbook, and save 10 percent by NOT using plastic!
