New Craft Night at Nectar! Debuting Tuesday, June 5!

We love to collaborate with our business neighbors.  Did you know we are now hosting a brand new  craft night each month at Nectar Froyo, across from our Bybee Blvd supply store in Sellwood!  We will be hosting this the first Tuesday of each month.  Our first one will happen on Tuesday, June 5, from 5pm - 6:30pm.
Here's the project we will be making at our debut craft night: these cute felt Oregon shapes, which can be turned into a brooch, or made into a patch, or used as a pincushion!

Can't make it to this craft night?  Don't fret, we've included the how-to instructions for you below.

Want more info on our upcoming craft nights and other community events we are participating in?  Check our "Upcoming Events" page HERE for all the details!

We are excited to announce a special demo during the month of May! Local illustrator Jenna Lechner will be joining us to showcase a new series of gel pens, called the Pop Pens Series, released by Pentel. These impressive pens include a series of 3 new pens: Sparkle Pop Pens, Milky Pop Pens, and Solar Pop pens. 

These pens have some really unique qualities, including iridescent glitter, opaque pastel color, and fluorescent color.
