Weekly Newsletter Volume 77 | January 26, 2021
Greetings!
What a crazy couple weeks I have had! Traditionally, we have one big vendor show in January but with Covid things are a little different this year. Instead of one show, I have 5 to attend! The Crew at the store has been great holding down the fort. Please feel free to call or email us with questions or orders. I am working as fast as I can to upload new product to the website.

Events & Products: There are new Class registrations below! Lawn Fawn with Julie Kelly, New Nikki Sher classes and a couple with myself!

The new Tim Holtz distress color will be revealed on February 1! We have it available for pre order now here.

Glitter Vacs are back in stock! We sold out of them industry wide after the last Maker Mania! They arrived last Thursday night and we are shipping out special orders. If you are participating in Maker Mania, it will be a hot item and definetly one everyone is talking about (besides #icedspruce)!

Other new things that landed on the floor last week include new Doodlebug, Photoplay, Echo Park, Elizabeth Crafts Designs, My Favorite Things, Mama Elephant, Aurora Flakes and Hero Arts! All this will be uploaded to our website by the end of the week or you can call/email to place an order as well. All orders (online/in store/phone/email) earn loyalty points.
.
Our Galentine's Crop weekend has 5 spots left! We are so excited to be including samples of a new line picked up at the show last week! Registration for National Scrapbook Day Weekend will open February 1, 2021.

Flea Market Seller Spots are 65% full. I will be updating the list tonight again after I get to the store and pick up print outs of contracts. We will be having all the proper protocols in place and limiting the number of shoppers and shopping time. VIP Friday will be an entire day with times slots, and Early Bird Shoppers will be before the store opens with timed slots as well.

Classroom Closure: As you know, 2020 has made us become very flexible and sharpen our ability to pivot.

With the new regulations that went into effect last night, we are still not allowed to open any common areas which include our classroom and our bathroom. We continue to monitor the situation and will pivot as needed.

Please be patient with us as we will be processing orders that need to be shipped out before pick up orders due to delays with USPS.

Our storefront IS OPEN! We are fortunate for this, but we do have to operate with a limited capacity of 22 people inside at any given time. This includes staff and customers. If the store is at capacity, we will ask you to wait outside on the marked spots.

Our online shop is always open. www.CreativeEscapeLG.com
Creative Escape Plus We have a new membership program for die lovers!

Creative Escape Plus Members get a year round discount on dies and coordinating stamps all year long. Good for 1 year from the date you sign up. Membership is $99 for one year and non refundable.
