Tim Holtz is coming to the Playground!

7th Anniversary Celebration 
with Tim Holtz!

Update Sunday, April 27: Classes are sold out. Please call one of the phone numbers provided in the blog below (not the direct store number) until 12 p.m. ET, Sunday, April 27 if you would like to be added to the wait list. Thank you all!
 

We've waited 7 years to announce this...

We are thrilled and excited beyond imagination to be able to host Tim Holtz for our 7th Anniversary Celebration on June 7th and 8th. Also joining us in the celebration is the one and only Mr. BTS himself, Mario!

 "Creative Collections" 

Life is filled with artful moments that remind us to " Remember the Now".

 Join Tim Holtz and discover a place to capture your creative thoughts and memoirs of the everyday as you assemble a unique Collections Folio.

This multi-layered project will showcase techniques using various Distress products including inks, paints, stains, and markers as you explore ways to work with collage ephemera, stamps, stencils, and more.  Prepare to wander into the world of your creative collections...

Tim will be providing everything you need to make your project including use of Heat Gun, scissors, etc. Please do not bring your tool kit as there will not be room for it. 

Although this project enables you to put pictures in it if you want, you will not have time to so during class so please do not bring pictures with you. 

Class is 3.5 hours, cost is $85. 
Payment in full needs to be made at time of registration. 
Class fees are non-refundable but are transferable in the event you cannot make it.


Class times


Saturday June 7
9am - 12:30pm
2:30pm - 6pm

Sunday June 8
9am - 12:30pm
2:30pm - 6pm  

PLEASE READ 

Please have the following information available when you call:

1. Class time you want (please have 2nd, 3rd and 4th time available in the event the class time you want is sold out)

2. Credit Card type (MC, Visa, Discover) number, expiration date, CVV and billing zip code
If you cannot pay by credit card then you must come to the store by Saturday April 26 to pay in cash, in full. THIS WILL NOT GUARANTEE YOU A SPOT. You will still need to call on Sunday April 27 to register. If you were not able to get into a class we will have your cash in an envelope ready for pick-up Sunday April 27 at noon when registration ends. We are offering this option because we know some of you only pay in cash and we don't want anyone to be excluded because they don't use credit cards

3. Phone number you can be reached at, preferably home or cell

4. E-mail address

5. People you would like to be seated with. We will do our best to honor this request.

6. You may register yourself and a friend. Both must be paid in full at time of registration. We will happily accept 2 different credit cards. You must have name, phone number and email address for your friend if you are registering for them. You must have all their credit card information if you are not paying for their class.

7. If you are in a wheelchair please advise us so we can remove a regular chair for your wheelchair


Times and Phone Numbers for registration

Registration will be Sunday April 27 from 8a.m to Noon
Please call one of the following numbers to register. You will not be able to register if you call the store

In an effort to be fair to ALL our customers, we will not be reserving any seats in advance so please don't ask the staff to do so.

Class size is limited as Tim will be teaching at the store. Tim wants to be at the store to help us celebrate our Anniversary and wants to be able to interact more with students as he teaches. The smaller class size will enable you to have an amazing learning experience with Tim!

We anticipate these classes will sell out on Sunday

We will have a waiting list in the event these classes sell out. If someone is unable to attend we will automatically fill the empty seat from the waiting list in order. We will charge your card and then call you. If we can't reach you by phone we will send you an e-mail notifying you.

PARKING

In an effort to avoid disrupting the other businesses in the strip mall we kindly ask you not park in the parking lot. There is ample parking on the side streets and directly across the street at the elementary school. We encourage you to car pool. You may drop off your friends and then park your car. We will have a staff member helping to direct you where to park.


Day of Class Sales

We will be having some special sales related to Tim Holtz and Ranger products that will be announced in class. You will receive a paddle with your own personal shopping number so you can just raise your paddle when you want something. We will put it in a bag and place it on your account on hold for you. These items must be picked up and paid for the day of your class. 
Should we run out of anything you want to order we will honor the special pricing as long as it is paid for the day of class. We will then ship it to you at no cost if you live beyond the Nassau/Queens border. If you're local you can pick it up as soon as it comes in. 

Please do not call the store to register
Please call the numbers listed above

Are you as thrilled and excited as us?  Leave us a comment letting us know
