Michaels In Store Event Recap

Last Friday we attended a special in store event, for Michael’s Reward Members. This in store event was a huge success. It featured Cathie Filian and Steve Piacenza, along with Mod Podge Rocks, Amy Anderson. Cathie and Steve did a live Q&A with members, that was also live streamed to viewers online. Afterwards, all three craft celebrities assisted the crowd with making some craft projects. All attendees had the opportunity to select from three craft projects to make. They could make one, or all three projects. Everyone there has lots of fun. We even did several giveaways, of  Mod Podge filled gift baskets. We will be posting some video of the event later on this week, so be sure to check back to see it. Hopefully we will see you next time, at the next Michaels in store event.

Cathie Filian & Steve Piacenza

Cathie and Steve pose with “Grandma Betty.” She drove over 80 miles to attend this event. She was so sweet, and very excited to be there.

Attendees focused on creating their crafts, at the Make and Take tables.

Attendees could make this stencil project.

Another craft option to make, was to paint a notebook cover.

Or they could make a frame using Mod Podge. Amy Anderson, from Mod Podge Rocks made these.

A few lucky attendees left the event, with this fabulous Mod Podge gift basket.

So many people attended, that the staff at Michaels even had to add additional tables to accommodate everyone.
