SHOWS COMING UP, HOCHANDA, AND A STEP BY STEP IN PHOTOS.....

Yes we do indeed have some retail shows coming up on the calendar in the next few months - the first is a brand new show at Gateshead International Stadium on the 8th of September, where we are sharing a large stand with Chocolate Baroque, and where you can also meet the Hochanda team.  The second one is the Autumn show from Happy Stampers, which is on the 6th of October, and the same stand sharing applies, in the same position as last time.  Your support is always very much appreciated of course and particularly at the first one as it is brand new, and if it goes down well, hopefully it will set a new northern plan for the future.  You will find links to the organisers top right, for ticket information.

Also as mentioned in my last post we are appearing on Hochanda on the 3rd and 4th of August, where they are running a few days in their tv schedule dedicated to small and family run craft materials businesses.  There will be great prizes, great demos, new products and much excitement, and again your support is invaluable for us folk running small businesses.  Can't wait for August, September and October!!

I now have a fabulous step by step in photographs by teamie Sylvie from France.  This is the beautiful finished sample...


...created with love using CI-495, and CI-493.

Here are the steps..
























Such lovely colours Sylvie!

That's just about all for this evening although I have another beautifully colourful make by Sherry Hickey to share using those stripey deckchairs again - wow!..


Hope you are all surviving the heat?!  I'm just about melting right now, but really shouldn't complain I know!!

Night all,

Jean x

Stunning work br Sylvie and Sherry, and a great step by step for the vibrant and pretty birds, and the deckchairs in those bright colours look really beautiful. I will definitely be tuning in for the August TV shows too Jean. x
