Hey there! Has anyone heard about what's going on at Michaels? And if so do you know of a petion to stop this.
I've been taking a cake decorating class at Michaels. (Sorry, all, I can't send samples, but I think I have gained like 5 pounds- anyhow). Tonight was our last night of class, and our instructor apologized for the room being a mess. Michaels Crafts Stores are no longer holding any classes or workshops (with the exception of Wilton cake decorating...due to contracts between the two companies). All of the supplies and equipment for the other classes is to be destroyed and thrown away. The piles of equipment was amazing. Paper cutters, pasta machines, crayons, die cuts thingie, polymer clay, paints, oh it went on. We are all upset that all that wonderful stuff is to be destroyed.
All of us in our small class are not understanding why this stuff couldn't be donated to the schools that were damaged in the hurricanes a couple years back. Or used to raise money for kids in under funded schools. It's sad, it seems as if they are letting a wonderful opportunity pass by. I know if I'd heard they donated this stuff or the money it raised I would look to them for more crafty stuff.
Apparently, this is suppose to be all Michaels, not just the one local to me. Can you imagine the amount of stuff being destroyed? Just sad. But if anyone's heard of this before or a petition to stop this from happening, please let me know, I'd like to sign it.
LOL, I have to laugh, I might be an adult, but I always wanted to have a birthday party there :( even if I was the only one, I'd love to have crafting birthday party. Oh well. I'll still settle for gift cards to the craft stores.
