Makers' Mercantile Grand Opening March 1 - 3


Yesterday, I visited Makers' Mercantile, the new Skacel Retail Shop and Gluten Free Bakery, in Kent, WA.

They even had fabric for sale (Redbird1 got some for a new project bag.)  Organic fabric!
I wandered past the counter displaying the gluten free cookies (rather quickly as gluten free does not mean fat free), to a wall of mugs and cups for sale.
They also had super cute aprons and napkins.

Then, I turned around to the yarn.  The whole right side of the store holds their yarns.

As you can see, because they focus on their own yarns, they have the room to have lots of color choices for each specific label.  I was very tempted by the Trekking XXL sock yarns, but, held fast to my yarn diet.

They also have some very nice spaces.  They have a teaching/ crafting room:
And another room full of cozy couches and chairs where you can sip one of their coffees, nibble on a cookie, and just relax and craft:
This coming Friday, March 1, they are having a very special event, a Red Light Night, from 7 pm to 10 pm.  This is a benefit event for the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) in support of The Heart Truth, a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease.

There will be drinks and of course yummy food from the bakery, as well as "Red Light Specials."  The honored guest will be Laura Zander, of the books, Knit Red: Stitching for Women's Health and Sew Red:  Sewing and Quilting for Women's Heart Health.

15% of all sales from this evening of fun will be donated to FNIH.

There will also be Crafty Goody Bags for people who reserve in advance by calling 425.251.1239 and donate $20 to FNIH.

Also!  If you come dressed in RED, you will be entered in a drawing for a craft class of your choice.

Wow, it will be a really fun evening.

In addition to all the fun coming up this Friday, they have a calendar full of classes and happenings.  The store stays open late on Tuesdays and Thursdays for Sit & Stitch Nights.

Check it out this Friday, and support Women's Heart Health, a cause very close to home for me.
