Newsletter - Christmas 2011

Newsletter - Christmas 2011

Hi everyone.

I can’t believe we are so close to Christmas, and this will be the last newsletter of 2011!

Firstly an update on our cards for the forces. I have just forwarded another 208 cards, taking our new total to 3062! For those that are new to the newsletter, we make and donate greeting cards for our forces in Afghanistan. So they have cards to send home to their loved ones.

There is more information about this on our website.

The new magazine Creative stamping seems to be going well, the latest issue 2, is now out it has projects made by Sarah’s stamp shack! Please let me know if you would like a copy saved for you, as i only have a small number coming in each time.

Crop days, Good news! We have found a new hall to hire, as i couldn’t get Plaitford village hall when i wanted it, nobody replies to phone messages!

We will be using the scout hut, at West wellow, this is if you are coming from Southampton, left at the West wellow roundabout, where you see the sign for ‘Canada’ it is just past there on right.

If coming from Salisbury, third exit at West wellow roundabout, on right just after ‘Canada’ sign.

There is plenty of  parking , and it isn’t used as much as the village hall, so i  want to start holding more regular crops. For the winter we will meet from 10am-3pm, so people don’t have to drive in the dark. When the spring arrives we will go back to the later finish, either 4 or 5pm. 

The classes leading up to Christmas are going to include some gift ideas, so please book early to avoid disappointment. We will be running classes up until Friday 16th December and resume after Christmas on Wednesday 11th January. I will still be open for shopping, just call first.

 I have lots of lovely Christmas stock in, Christmas embossing folders, Marianne dies for use with cuttlebug and other die-cutting machines. Peel-offs at 70p each, glitter peel-offs £1-£1.25. Embellishments, ribbons from 20p metre. Lovely Molly bloom & W ild rose studio Christmas design stamps. As well as Woodware and many others.  I now have a Promarker stand with individual pens buy one get a free fine tip nib, great for faux stitching technique. Also packs of the flexi promarkers.   We have a large range of £1 templates which are very popular.

We will be doing Christmas in January again, before everyone puts there Christmas craft stuff away. A chance to get ahead for Christmas 2012!
