Classes this Week - lots of them!

Hi everybody. Thank you for coming and visiting me at the Leukaemia Foundation Craft Fair! Ruth and I had a stall and we were quite happy with the amount of traffic that went through. Thank you for inviting me again, Ruth - I just love your stuff!

Lots of classes this week so here we go . . .

Please RSVP so I know how many are coming

Tuesday 10am 22 November - Samples not yet prepared

Fred Moule Pavillion, Cairns Showgrounds

Ruth and I will have a stall at the craft fair this year. Pop in and say hello. We will have some of our work on display and will be selling some handmade cards.


Ruth and I will be holding a joint cardmaking class next Saturday. Ruth will be teaching 2 cards/projects and I will be teaching 2 cards. Join us for an extra day of "me time".

Saturday 26 November
Hambledon House, Bruce Highway Service Road, Edmonton
1.30pm - 4.30pm
$20 for 4 cards/projects - all materials, equipment and dubious coffee provided


Due to the success of the Christmas stamp-a-stack classes on the weekend, I'll be holding one further day for you to make some more Christmas cards. Doing 2 x 10 different designs was a bit ambitious, though, and some happy crafters didn't finish their 20 cards on time. For those booking in, I will ask you to choose the 5 designs you like and you can make 4 of each design to make up your 20 cards - there are "cutsie" and traditional options.

Sunday 27 November
5 Capricorn Street, Bentley Park
$50 for 20 cards - 4 x 5 designs - all materials, equipment and fabulous coffee provided
We are looking for new members to join the stamp club that will be commencing in January 2012. 
How it works:-
  • 6 happy crafters make a commitment to purchase at least $50 worth of SU! products each month for 6 months - a total "investment" of $300;
  • you email your order to me by the 25th of each month;
  • there will be a stamp club night once per month - come and have coffee/wine/chat and make 2 cards for free;
  • take turns at playing the "hostess with the mostest" - you will receive the hostess benefits of at least $50 to spend.


The new Summer mini catalogue comes out on 1 December. I'll have some available at classes or if you'd like one posted to you, let me know.


You have until 30 November to take advantage of the 10% off selected Big Shot dies / embossing folders promotion. See my last blog post for all of the details.


Last class for the year will be on Friday 9 December.

Bye for now.
