A couple weeks ago, I got an invitation in my inbox to a party at Joann Fabrics. A free party. With free food and free craft stuff. And so of course, I sent it to my little sister Lauren and my friend Kelsey too. So last Friday night, we went to a party…..at the fabric store. Yes, we did.
We hit the thrift store and scored some good buys — I got two shirts, an Ann Taylor sundress, and a really cute skirt all for $10. Which reminds me, I need to pay La back.
Inside, they had a lot of little “stations” where you could make crafts. The first station we stopped at was to learn to make earrings. I already knew how, but I wasn’t going to pass up free earrings! And Lauren and Kelsey got to learn.
And here’s the loot! (Howie was not part of the loot, but he deemed it his duty to inspect it thoroughly.) I got a lot of coupons — a celebrity from Project Runway was there, and he was handing out coupons. I think he was bored and was given too many coupons. But hey, I’m not complaining! My favorite prizes were the scissors and the silk scarf. (We were supposed to decorate the scarves, but I didn’t want to deface mine with puff paint, so I left it as it was.)
So if Joann’s ever has a party in your area, go! It’s definitely worth your while.
