4th Saturday Open Crop

From yesterday's heritage to present day memories, your scrapbooks contain many priceless treasures. You may enjoy them now, but it would be wonderful for future generations to see them too. With a little information and effort, your albums can last for generations to come. April 25th from 1p.m. - 3p.m. is the designated class time to come a learn how to properly preserve these treasured memories.

Come learn what products are available to help preserve your memorabilia; how to know if your products are acid free; what temperature can do to your pages; how humidity affects longevity; what exposure to UV lighting creates; proper storage secrets; handling that promotes longevity; and cleaning of albums and photographs.

An added Bonus during this time is that you can bring in different items that you question their acid level and test them by trying out a PH pen, and then try Archival Mist that makes your materials acid free. Some items that generally need sprayed are newspaper clippings, certificates, report cards, and awards.

Along with this limited service you will be able to take home a free make and take project.

Don't forget that from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on this same day, we are having open crop time for you to come and work on some of your scrapbook pages.

Preserving your hard work and memories is such an important part of the process and this little added effort is worth making time for. Hope to see you there! We always have a great time!
