|Sue Wilson & cards|
As you know we spent yesterday at the Craft, Hobby + Stitch show at the NEC near Birminham. What a day it was! We arrived around 9.30, in pouring rain, and thought we would whizz round and be out fairly quickly, we ended up leaving just before they chucked us out. It was a great day, we saw many of our current suppliers and met new ones. We chose the right day to go, not too many people but busy enough to make it 'buzzy'. We have ordered loads of new stuff, stamps, dies and lots more. We met the lovely Sue Wilson and we ordered even more of her great dies, she did sterling service demonstrating and answering questions all day with good humour and a smile. On the same stand was Phill Martin the master of coordination, demonstrating his fab range of which we now have a good selection in stock.
On the other side of the hall was the PaperArtsy stand, Leandra and Mark as busy and welcoming as ever. We love their stuff and as you know we keep a large stock. We saw too many people to mention but we look forward to seeing them all again next year.
We didn't even have time for tea until late afternoon.
It was great day and as we left the sun even made an appearance, what more could you want. Next week we are expecting our new 'goodies', as they start arriving we'll be tweeting, blogging and e.mailing to keep you up to date with what's new in stock.
We are really looking forward to Sundays card making workshops, the kettle will be on and the cake nicely sliced. There are just a few places left, just call the gallery on 0208 530 1244 to book a place.
