News round up

I have just spent three great days at The NEC helping out the PaperArtsy gang at the annual UK trade show. On Saturday, both myself and Jo Firth-Young taught classes to some of PaperArtsy's wonderful retail customers using many of the new products that were launching at the show.

Some amazing artwork was produced in these classes and everyone went home fired up and excited at the prospect of being able to purchase these new products for their stores and to be able to pass on the techniques we taught them. I think this sample belongs to Liz but I'll apologise now just in case I'm wrong!!

We used my new Limited Edition paints, my new stencils, my new quote stamps and some of the lovely Darcy's new stamps designs too. It was such a fun class.....even Leandra played along.

If you are itching to get your hands on some of the new goodies, I know that The Stamp Attic, The Craft Barn and Country View Crafts already have these items in stock and orders placed at the show will start to be shipped out as soon as Mark and Leandra get back to PA HQ towards the end of the week.

At last I am able to update you on class information. I know many of you have been extremely patient with me, and for that I am truly grateful. Following my surgery, it has taken me much longer than anticipated to put my class samples together. However, I am more than happy to announce that at last they are finished and will be going on sale on Monday 24th February. Between now and Monday, I will be updating the website for bookings but please remember that "Book Classes" button will not be active until Monday.

In the meantime, I can tell you a little bit of information so that you can check your diary for dates.

Lucky retailers who got to attend those classes Lin. Liz's sample is beautiful. I've made a start on your new stuff with the paints ;D, but can't wait to get my hands on the rest. Everything is gorgeous!

The new workshop samples look gorgeous too

I don't mind admitting that I'm madly jealous of all the retailers who got to attend the PA workshops at Stitches. Your projects are so beautiful, I love the LP mini book.
