Go Craft Yourself studio opens for fans of DIY

TAMPA PALMS — Samantha Harrison considers herself a "do-it-yourself" type of person.

Over the years, she has crafted many items as gifts for friends and family. Now, she's opening Go Craft Yourself, a place where people can create their own DIY projects.

"I just enjoy it and thought it would be a fun idea," Harrison said.

She describes Go Craft Yourself as a do-it-yourself creative studio. People can walk in and pick out a project to work on, or they can sign up for a workshop. There will be approximately four workshops offered per week, which will provide more complex and in-depth projects.

"That's for people who want a little bit more hands-on, or want to do it with a group of people," Harrison said.

There will be a selection of projects that are always in stock, as well as seasonal projects. Harrison said she welcomes customizable projects, like those found on Pinterest.

"We'll also have space for parties and special events," she added.

Go Craft Yourself is slated to open this fall. The studio is located at 10311 Cross Creek Blvd., Suite A. For more information, call (321) 287-1300, or visit facebook.com/gocraftyourselfFL.

Urgent Care continues growth and expansion

In 2004, Fast Track Urgent Care Center opened its first location in Westchase, and now has locations in Carrollwood, South Tampa and Wesley Chapel.

There are plans to open more locations in Hillsborough County, and the Westchase office, located at 11969 Sheldon Road, recently celebrated the grand reopening of its newly renovated and expanded facility.

The Westchase facility doubled in size to 3,700 square feet. It now has a larger reception area, a separate triage room, six exam rooms and X-rays are performed on-site.

A new location recently opened in Wesley Chapel, making it the fourth Fast Track Urgent Care Center. In early 2017, a new location will open in Riverview, and another is slated to open in downtown Tampa in late 2017.

Fast Track Urgent Care Center provides convenient, quality and personalized care for adults and children 3 months and older in state-of-the-art facilities.

Patients can be treated for minor illnesses and injuries, as well as get physicals. Procedures and tests such as lab draws are performed.

Flu shots are also available at all locations. No appointment is necessary, but patients can go online to create a Fast Pass, which reduces wait times.

Fast Track Urgent Care Center is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. For more information, call (813) 925-1903, or visit fasttrackurgentcare.com.
