Yesterday, I visited Makers' Mercantile, the new Skacel Retail Shop and Gluten Free Bakery, in Kent, WA.
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.
Then, I turned around to the yarn. The whole right side of the store holds their yarns.
They also have some very nice spaces. They have a teaching/ crafting room:
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.
