Dear Friends,
As we embrace the New Year we want you to know that we have some exciting new classes, fabrics, styles, accessories and happenings lined up for you in the weeks ahead.

We hope to get out our next newsletter with details by next week... so this one is "short and sweet" just as our title claims...but be sure to read below about our chocolate!

Please stay tuned and all of us at Chameleon wish you a healthy, happy, and nice new year!


Christmas Stocking Update
A huge thank you again to all the contributors to our Camp Fire Christmas Stocking Project. With your help we succeeded in making 846 unique, one-of-a-kind stockings, each with a personal message from its maker. You wonderful customers and friends of customers, collected over 300 gift cards to add to the stockings. When the over 800 lbs of stockings filled our store a supporter found a local resident, Lori who could take the stockings to Paradise and arranged for a Paradise Council Member to distribute the stockings at a Christmas Tree lighting ceremony in the city park that was spared from the fire's damage! Just Amazing!. Pictured above is a group of stocking makers from the Santa Maria District Attorneys' Office- never had sewn before!

We also want to especially thank the Sewing Cafe in Pismo Beach for providing the machines, thread and instruction which all made the project a fun and successful time.
Because We Have Good Taste...
Chameleon invited Dark Chocolate Candy Specialist, Cindy Ruda to set up a pop-up store featuring her Sweet Creations.
She will be in the Chameleon Store on Saturdays and Sundays, February 2nd &3rd and the 9th & 10th only.

We hope you'll be able to pay a visit to the store to meet Cindy, taste and purchase a few of these incredible treats!
