Rosie's Art Carnival
Art Carnival Opens Art Gallery!!

The big news this month is that we are adding an art gallery.
Featuring art that is fun, funky and sometimes freaky, the
 "Sideshow Gallery"
promises to be a great addition to our store.  We will have unique art from Florence's most unique artists.

My goal is to have it up and running by mid-September, so come by and check it out!

Oregon Coast Art Traders 


This group meets at the store at 10:30 on the 2nd Saturday of the month to swap Artists Trading Cards.   Everyone is welcome to come trade or just come see what it's all about.                                         



TUESDAYS are open studio days.  You are welcome to work on your projects here at the store and use any of the store-owned tools.


Remember: we will double your customer rewards for purchases on the day you participate in a class (for which the fee is $10 or more.)


Friday, Sept 23rd


Our upcoming OPERATION WRITE HOME card-making session will be on Friday, Sept 23 @ 10:30am.  These cards will be sent to our armed forces overseas.  They will be made available to our troops, so they can send greetings home to their loved ones.  I will provide the materials, but will ask for a $1 donation to help with postage. (However, everyone is welcome to bring their own materials for these cards.) 


Please make a reservation, and bring your card-making kit.

AND we also keep a box at the store, so you can bring cards by anytime. More information is available at the store.

September is back to school time at the Art Carnival, too, as we've planned lots of fun classes for you.  Cathy will be back with another Stampscapes class; make that 2 Stampscapes classes.  There will be a morning class for people who are experienced in the Stampscapes technique and an afternoon class for beginners.  Liz will be here with another bookbinding class, this one for a lovely hardbound book that is pretty to look at and nice to hold in your hand.  New card classes by Tracy and Pamela will involve new materials and new techniques.  And I will be presenting another Copic class, a flower class and more stamping with Rosie's Roadshow stamps.

October 1st is World Card Making Day and we have information in the store for an international contest which could win you $1000 in prizes.  Come check that out.   


Winter hours:   After Labor Day weekend, we will return to our winter hours, so come visit us:
    Tuesday-Friday 10:00 - 5:30
    Saturday 10:00-4:00

Visiting from out of town on our closed days?  Give us a call during our regular hours and perhaps we can make arrangements for you to shop by appointment.
