We were just informed...

It has been brought to our attention by the Claremont Community Foundation that the fundraising event at which heirloom will be hosting a "make and take" event, is in fact NOT sold out.  The flyers that were dropped off to our business were marked as Sold Out by the foundation.  If you would like to attend, please visit the CCF website to register for the party.  Please accept our sincerest apologies.

Busy Bees!

Sometimes it all just comes down in buckets.  We had to make a list of all that needs to be handled within the next few weeks.

First, we met a great girl whose store we've been stalking on facebook ever since we opened our doors.  Marci, owner of Co-Op28 in Los Feliz paid us a visit last week.

She's super cool and we clicked instantly.  We're planning on taking some of our classes to her store studio space in early spring, so we'll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, we're gearing up for the main event here in Claremont, the Community Foundation Party Parade.  This series of month long fundraisers puts a lot of green in the city's charity coffers, and we're proud to be hosting the March 24th party.   If you remember, we mentioned a little demo we did for the party planners...and they just loved it.

It's going to be a fun night, and...'s already SOLD OUT!  Neat-0.  

For the time being, I'm still trying to wrap my head around my current project, something I hope to share in a workshop within the next month or two...

Yep, you guessed it (or not) - a motorized Zoetrope.  Isn't it groovy?  And, you can change out the artwork for whatever you can draw! 

I'm also going to incorporate this little nifty tool I found last week.  

There's just something intriguing and clever about it.  I think the whole rig will be super special.

Udates, updates...

First, we'd like to proudly introduce our new line of skin care products from Padua Farms.  All of is is locally made with natural ingredients.

And, along with our groovy class roster, we're adding a few new hands-on projects to the mix:
Ginger Beer and Kombucha, and...

Can't really say, but it's going to be super cool and dazzling!  Stay tuned!

The Chandelier

Months in the making, we finally got this up at our neighbor's place, the Packing House Wine Merchants.  It's a 28 bottle chandelier with two magnum sized pendant lamps over the two tables.  It was really fun to put together.  You can make a pendant lamp just like one of those in one of our classes.  Once you learn how, you can go to town and put together any sort of piece you can dream up!

Cards cards and more cards

A lot of people have been taking advantage of our sweet card making offer of only $5.50.  You can basically do anything you can dream up on a card.  Here are some of the things people have been doing, with the help of our rubber stamps and die-cut machine.  The machine can generate over 500 images and fonts in layers of colored paper.  All you have to do is select them and glue them down.  The machine does the rest!

Personalize a card, today.

And, how groovy is this?  We've got wax and metal stamps to seal your envelope shut, just like back in the old days!
