Sizzix®, Ellison’s sister brand, will be empowering family crafting at the Curacao’s 19th Annual Children’s Fair (La Feria de los Niños) on Saturday, April 12, from noon – 5 p.m. in Los Angeles, CA. Ellison will also participate, by donating educational die cutting supplies to five participating community schools.
The Children’s Fair aims to give children and parents access to valuable community resources and information that provide after-school alternatives and engage children in organized activities.
Held at the Los Angeles Curacao store, Sizzix will participate in “The Creative Hub” booth, along with Craft and Hobby Association SoCal chapter members Stampendous! Inc. and Cool2Craft, to promote arts and crafts through the use of make-and-take projects and product demonstrations.
In support of Curacao’s “Be a Star” program, which seeks to reward educational efforts, Ellison will donate AllStar® SuperStar™ Starter Sets. Five participating local Los Angeles schools will receive a Block alphabet and number die set, a machine, cutting pads and storage rack.
“Ellison is excited to participate in Curacao’s Kids Event by introducing die cutting to the next generation of crafters,” said Saema Khwaja, Ellison Curriculum Integration Specialist. “We hope to show how die cutting can be a fun activity that parents and children can do together!”
Sizzix will be using the 3-D Ribbon Die , the Mini Bat & Skull Set , and the Fashion Cuff Die for the make-and-takes. If you live in the Los Angeles area, please stop by, say hello, craft, and join in the fun!
