A day of making, shopping and fun!

November 17, 2018

A Day of Making, Shopping and Fun hosted throughout Historic Mooresville.  Sponsored by Mooresville Mercantile.

Join us for a fun day in Historic Mooresville on November 17. You will participate in two to four workshops where you make a gift or holiday decoration; have the opportunity to shop privately with the artists who are serving as instructors for the day, as well as Mooresville businesses; feast on good food; enjoy two learning experiences during lunch; go on a private guided tour of Historic Mooresville (optional) -- plus a few extra surprises we have planned.  Events will be held throughout the town. (See Venues.)

The entire day’s activities are provided at one cost of $179 per person. Space is limited so we can keep our workshops small enough for individual attention from the instructors.

To register, please call 256-309-9085.

The day's schedule:                                              

  • Check-in opens at 7:30 at the Mooresville Mercantile showroom.  Coffee and pastries provided by JaVa.Mooresville.

(Instructors, town businesses and Mooresville Mercantile will be available for shopping throughout the day and after the event ends.  It’s a perfect time to check-off your holiday gift list.)
  • Afternoon workshops start at 1:30.   There are one 3-hour workshop and six 1 ½-hour workshops to entice your creative skills.
