The Yellow Tin Cup DIY shop brings the "passion of crafts" to the Havre downtown area.

The do-it-yourself shop opened its doors Friday, June 1, and is holding classes to teach people to create their own signs and backyard yahtzee, said Alyssa Crawford, owner of Yellow Tin Cup.

She added that the company welcomes events such as children's birthday parties, bachelorette parties, bridal showers and baby showers. She said people are allowed to bring food or drinks to their classes, as well as birthday cakes or other celebratory items.

"We can basically tailor any class to any theme," Crawford said.

The workshop is filled with colorful items, including chairs that Crawford and her daughter had painted themselves. Giving the room a fun and lively atmosphere and creating a welcoming, "cozy and quaint" environment, Crawford said.

Crawford said she has always been crafty person and would like to share the excitement of DIY projects with the community of Havre and give them "something different."

Crawford said the company at the moment mostly does sign-building workshops, eventually she would like to include a ceramics class as well as more do-it-yourself projects.

For the sign-building classes, Crawford said, people can pick the sayings and style they would like to have on their sign. People can customize them and make them personal and then they can come in and Crawford will show them how to build them.

She added that every month will have a different basic theme such as Thanksgiving, Christmas or Fourth of July. Crawford said these workshops are family-oriented and can be a fun activity for the whole family.

Crawford said the prices vary depending on the class, the basic classes for sign building run at $45, and with a frame added would be an additional $10. Large parties, kids birthdays or other events prices are dependent on the party size.

Crawford said she wanted to thank ProBuild, who has supplied her with much of the materials she has used to set up the workshops and classes.

Crawford added she had also started "Havre Rocks" last summer, which plans decorated rocks around town for the community to find. She said the Yellow Tin Cup will be hosting a kids class where kids are able to decorate their own rocks and hide them around town.

Crawford said people can register for classes on the Yellow Tin Cup website, https://www.yellowtincup.com/, and classes are usually held either Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Each class is about two hours long and women and men are encouraged to come and participate. To book a party email Crawford at [email protected]

Crawford and her husband, Neil, are also the owners of the Crawford Distillery which is set to open in the next couple weeks.
