I'm in love with Warrington


Should I be writing this post.....no! Should I be tucked up in bed catching up on some much needed sleep....yes! But I couldn't go to bed without sharing a little of the excitement of the Artsycrafts weekend in Warrington. As you know, Warrington is a new venue for us and we had no idea what to expect......the venue was great, the food was great, the Artsycrafters were simply amazing and much fun was had by all. We had quite a few local people, some travelled from Wales, some from the very tippy top of Scotland and two of our ladies travelled up from Hastings for the weekend! Out of all the projects that Leandra and I have cooked up, the arch has to be our favourite one and everyone who attended the weekend made a fabulous arch for themselves. They also made a little slider mailer thingy and the cutest little trinket dish, lined with mosaics. There are lots of pics to follow but I just wanted to say such a huge thank you to everyone who attended, Leandra and I both had a fantastic time, great company, lots of laughter, lots of teaching....we are exhausted now but it was worth every minute.


More to follow soon.

So glad it all went well. But then it was an Artsy Crafty weekend, of course it was going to go brilliantly. Hope you're all tucked up in bed now...dreaming up more inspirational things for us to do.

Fabulous time had by us Scottish ladies - well worth the journey!! Thank you to you and Leandra for all your hard work and preparation.

Well I was one of the Lucky Ones! I had the most fabulous weekend and, as I have said on my blog, the organisation and way you looked after us was by far the best I have ever experienced. I have also said that peeps should save up and go on one and I do mean it - if I won the lottery I would pay for all my friends to attend one of your weekends. Thank you both so much for a fantastic time and a wonderful project which was hanging on my wall the minute I got home. (If anyone reads this I am booked on the next one now - shows how much I loved it)

Hi Lin, I really think that you both need to travel across the Irish Sea to Ireland, Land of a thousand welcomes! We would love to have you here to do a weekend of classes. Please say you will????

Thank you again for a wonderful weekend - you were great teachers, the organisation was wonderful, the breaks were spaced perfectly and the company was great too.
Agree with all that Neet has said above, and I've managed to get a place for NP. Yippee!

Chris said...

It was an absolutely wonderful weekend. Huge thanks to you, Lin and Leandra. Not forgetting Mark of course who must have had a sore thumb from pushing everyones eyelets in the arches.

It was definitely worth the half hour drive up the motorway! lol

Just to say a big thankyou for such a fabulous weekend. It took me some time to be brave enough to book and come on my own, but it was great! I'm so proud of my creations, Lin and Leandra were so helpful and patient and the organisation was brilliant. Can't wait to come again! Thankyou! Alice x
