QC is working to MOTIVATE our customers to finish their holiday gifts EARLY this year! To do this, we are holding a contest to give away gift cards to those who participate in our Santa's Workshop Contest! This program is FREE to particpate. The Kickoff Party is on August 31st, where we'll be ready with project ideas and kits to get you started. We'll also go into detail on all of the rules of the contest and how to fill out the "Nice List"... Might even have some holiday themed treats to share! You do not need to attend the Kickoff Party to participate.

To participate, stop into the store to fill out a "Nice List" or come to our Santa's Workshop PLANNING NIGHT on August 31st from 6-8PM. You'll make a list of your gift recipients and what you plan to make them, then head home and get crafting! Any handmade gift qualifies.
