April 7, 2014 – Lake Forest, CA – Sizzix®, the crafts market leader in steel-rule dies, die cutting machines and accessories, will be empowering family crafting at the Curacao’s 19th Annual Children’s Fair (La Feria de los Niños) on Saturday, April 12, noon – 5 p.m. in Los Angeles, Calif.
In partnership with Univision and Telefutura, 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. Donations from several companies including The Buckle Boutique, Chameleon International, Prima Marketing Inc.®, Faber Castell and Aleene’s®, helped to make the event possible.
In support of Curacao’s “Be a Star” program, which seeks to reward educational efforts, the Sizzix education sister brand, Ellison, will donate AllStar® SuperStar™ Starter Sets (MSRP $189.99). 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!”
