Weekly Newsletter Volume 97 | September 14, 2021
Greetings!
We are so excited to announce we have a new website address!

All the old links still work and will be redirecting to the new site.

Effective August 3, 2021 Santa Clara County has reinstated its Mask Mandate indoors for everyone regardless of vaccination status. Thank you for helping us keep our community safe.



New Tim Holtz Distress Holiday products are IN STOCK NOW! Holiday product has arrived! Bundle pricing is available. Place order here

MAKER MANIA 4 kits have all shipped and are now ready for pick up. We still have a few in store crop weekend spots while streaming the event and virtual spots. In store spots include raffle prizes and make & takes. See details & register here
Our storefront IS OPEN! We are fortunate for this, but we do have to operate within the guidelines from the county. MASKS are required for all unvaccinated people (adults & children) while you are shopping for the safety of our staff and customers. The CDC strongly recommends wearing a mask indoors regardless of vaccination status. As a business, we reserve the right to ask for vaccine verification for events and classes.
Classroom: Our classroom is open again. As things start to reopen and the ordinances become a little less restrictive, so will we. At the moment, the classroom is only open for Creative Escape sponsored classes and events.

Our online shop is always open. www.CreativeEscapeLG.com

We are selling in store spots as well! We will be streaming the Facebook Live videos all weekend long and have open crop time as well! 
 
Join us on September 24-26, 2021 for this one of a kind VIRTUAL event weekend! We will take you on an amazing journey as we travel around the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom in a private Facebook group-- featuring an amazing group of independent craft stores that are part of Crafters Home. During this weekend event, you can sit back and watch as each store takes turns sharing crafting ideas for cardmakers, scrapbookers, papercrafters and more. This is the fourth event of its kind and each one gets better and bigger so you don’t want to miss out! Space is limited, so don’t delay your registration
 
Your Maker Mania event access includes demos from each participating store (with written step by step instructions and photos uploaded to the group after each demo) and your VIP access to our private Maker Mania Facebook Group, where all the action will take place. As a bonus you will get a Product Bundle that will be full of the latest and greatest papercrafting supplies! Each of the makers will then utilize the same bundle to show you projects that they have designed with it! Think of the fun and ideas that will be flowing as each store shares their creations—each different and unique, but all using the same products. The inspiration doesn’t stop there though—the huge community of your new crafting friends will keep you busy for many months to come as others post their spin on the projects!
SOLD OUT

Registration fee includes crop box of supplies for demos with retail value of $100+.
