Newsletter - Autumn 2011

Hi Everyone

Firstly, welcome to all our new newsletter subscribers.  If you have not been out to the stamp shack before you are in for a real treat.  The new Christmas stock is starting to arrive.

 Just a reminder to everyone that the Southampton Papercraft show is on Saturday the 8th October.

It will be our 10th show!  It is at St. James Methodist Church Hall, St. James Road, Shirley, Southampton, SO15 5HE.  From 10.30 -3.30pm, admission is £2.50.

Our stall holders include:  JJ Quilling, Creative Memories, Craft-shed, Papercraft Ltd, Jeanette as seen on Creat & Craft TV, Holme Barn Crafts, Stampin-up, The Letter Box and of course Sarah’s Stamp Shack.  There will be demonstrators and a make & take.  Refreshments will be for sale in the link café.

Here is an update on the cards for the forces.  For those that don’t know, as our charity, we make and send out cards to our soldiers in Afghanistan.  So they have cards to send home to their loved ones.  I have just sent out another box of over 300 cards, taking our current total to 3,162.  If you are interested in getting involved, there is information about this on my website or give me a ring.

Here is the latest news on parchment craft; there is no class in September as Christine is away.

There is a change of date to our October class which is now the 30th.

 Creative Cardmaking – this magazine is only available in craft shops.  Please let me know if you would like me to reserve you copy.  Each month there is a competition, you send in a card using the free papers in the magazine.  If you win, you get to send £50 in the store you purchased the magazine in.  Please keep entering.  Lyn Pickering from Landford has come a runner up twice!  Well done Lyn. Keep trying.  Apparently runners up get a prize too!

Creative Stamping, this magazine is also only available in craft shops.  Issue one is just out and comes with an A4 sheet of clear Christmas stamps valued at £20.  The magazine is priced at £5.99 and comes out every couple of months.

Please look out for our new afternoon and evening classes, as I no longer have a school run to do.  If you are coming to an evening class please bring a torch.

Sorry there are no crop days booked, I have had problems booking the hall.

Beading  dates to follow.

I hope to see you all soon.

Take care Sarah x
