Twist Show Dates
Friday May 11, 2012
Crafty Endeavors is a group of kids, ages 8-14, who will be selling their own handmade wares at Twist on Saturday Nov 12th from 10am-6pm. The kids meet in advance to discuss their work, figure out pricing, and to collaborate on marketing ideas, creative signage and their shared display. No parents are allowed to help the crafters make or sell their work -- nor are they permitted to attend the meetings, which are supervised, but not run, by a Twist staff member. It's purely a kids crafty endeavor.
The kids work in shifts (well, they are supposed to, but most of them stay all day!!) and sell not only their own pieces, but also the work of their fellow artists. They help each other present their work and talk in detail about their creative processes.
In lieu of a table fee, Crafty Endeavors donates a portion of their sales to support finding a cure for Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Please shop their table knowing you are nurturing the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of our young crafters as well as supporting a terrific cause. Twist will be matching their donation to the Arthritis Foundation.
The Crafty Endeavors kids come from all over the Pioneer Valley and attend various schools throughout the area. Their booth at Twist is sponsored by WEBS - America's Yarn Store. We thank the kids for their hard work, creativity and cooperation. And we thank WEBS for their generous support!
