17 Lucky Years!

The Fancy Tiger Crafts staff stands in front of a brick way wearing their 17th Anniversary t-shirts either in black or white. An orange cat stands in front of them. Wow, how the time flies! We can’t believe it’s already been 2 years since we became an employee owned co-op, and that on Saturday, July 15th, we’ll be celebrating 17 whole years of Fancy Tiger Crafts! Holy cow. We feel so incredibly lucky to be able to celebrate these milestones with all of you, our amazing customers!

If you’ve been an FTC regular for a while you may remember the swag bags we used to give away to the first 100 customers through the door on our special day, but in order to prioritize the health and safety of our community during the COVID19 pandemic, and subsequent couple of years, we made the choice to pause these giveaways. This year we decided to BRING THE BAGS BACK, baby! We reached out to our incredible array of vendors, and can assure you that these bags will be stuffed with goodies of all sorts!The top of a brown paper bag with the text "Fancy Tiger Crafts" stamped on it layed horizontal across a blue background. A pink skein of yarn, a flower pin, wooden buttons, cat sticker, and a pin of a ball of yarn are positioned to appear like they're overflowing out of the bag.

In addition to the very exciting return of our goodie bags, we’ve got a few more tantalizing tidbits to offer this year...

As is our tradition, we’re offering a new limited edition anniversary tee shirt, in two colorways! Following our theme of “Lucky 17” it’s covered with all kinds of lucky charms, and sure to bring good things your way.

Leaf and Danielle are wearing the 17th Anniversary T-shirts  in front of a brick way. Leaf wears the t-shirt in white while Danielle wears the black colored t-shirt.

All purchases made in store and online on July 15th (from 12am- 11:59pm) will receive a free FTC pencil, limit 1 per customer while supplies last.   Four orange pencils with the text "XX Fancy Tiger Crafts Co-Op XX are placed diagonally next to each other on a white background

All purchases of $25 or more (online and in-store) will receive a free limited edition notebook. These cuties are the perfect size to keep in your project bags! Again, limit 1 per customer while supplies last. TC notebook is being held up in front of some colorful yarn

We’ve also got some new tote bags printed. Great for groceries, projects, and anything else that needs to be schlepped, grab yours while we’ve got ‘em! A limited edition 17 Anniversary tote bag is being held by a person wearing white pants and black platform sandals. A mint green skein of yarn peaks out of the bag. The person is standing on a path surrounded by flowersIn case that wasn’t enough fun, we’ll also have new wash-away FTC embroidery transfers with tons of  cute designs ready and waiting to be added to anything you could possibly want to embroider (or visibly mend). Tattoo your clothes! 

Five sheets of embroidery transfer sheets fanned out with embroidery floss and a hoop framing themAnd for a real sweet treat, Ali Pate of Road Trip Sock Yarn has an exclusive new yarn for us, inspired by one of our favorite summer fruits, sure to be a refreshing choice for any summer stitching. Three skeins of Road Trip Sock Yarn's watermelon inspired yearn are placed around a project bag with one skein peaking out of it. A pink pom pom is also placed among the skeins.This year instead of offering classes during the party, we decided to do some demos!
