Life Unchained Hosting Craft Night this Friday Night

This Friday, May 9, Life Unchained is hosting a craft night for moms & their kids:

We're having a craft night/pinterest party/stitch & b*tch party for Phoenixville area ladies of all ages to get together and socialize while crafting. We have tables available for around 30 people. Well-behaved kiddos are more than welcome (meaning, someone might bring a hot glue gun or sharp scissors; it's up to you as to whether you think your kiddos would enjoy this event.)

Craft Night is this Friday night, 5/9, from 6 to 9pm at the Life Unchained Dream Factory office space located at 375 Morgan Street, Suite 3B (upstairs). Parking is *FREE* in the lot next to the building on the Morgan Street side, across from the lofts. Cost is $3 per person cash donation (if you don't have it or if you forget, no worries), which covers our cost to rent the space. Come when you want, stay as long as you want. This is NOT a thinly-veiled sales event or home party - there's no catch. We just wanted to provide the space for community events, and someone suggested a crafting night.

We'll throw on some music, pull out our craft stuff, and see what we can create individually with the company of others. Even if you're not crafty (I'm not!), it's still fun to gather up with fellow ladies and learn some techniques/hang out. There is WiFi if you'd like to bring a laptop to use Pinterest or to put on a video for kiddos to watch - we have a small separate space where we can set up Netflix or something for any little ones who might get bored. Refreshments are available for purchase at $1 or less.

Craft ideas:
-Knitting/Crocheting/Cross-Stitch
-Scrapbooking
-Jewelry-making/Beading
...etc.

We do not require RSVPs for this event, but if you would like to RSVP or if you have questions, you can email improvgames@hotmail.com, call 814-502-3670, or sign up to our meetup page for future events at this link - http://www.meetup.com/lifeunchained/events/180319102/. Hope to see you there!

The Colonial Theatre Last Stop for Comedy Festival

On May 17th at The Colonial Theatre the One Night Only Comedy & Variety Festival visits Phoenixville for ONE NIGHT ONLY! Pennsylvanian, Jonathan Burns, is a comedian and co-producer of this one of a kind festival. “I spend about 150 days performing on the road each year, and I wanted to create an event near home to showoff what I’ve been doing around the globe, and bring my funniest friends along. It is sure to be a night of big laughs and unusual talent.”

Each show will feature a mixture of unique and world-class talent that has been seen on America’s Got Talent, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, as well as on thousands of stages around the globe.

“The Colonial Theatre performance is only 1 stop of this comedy road show. The 6 day Pennsylvania tour will feature 12 comedic performers in 9 different shows in a variety of venues including theaters, arts centers, bars, and even a Mausoleum,” Burns quipped.
