Wow What a Day!

Hi All,

Wow,wow,wow can I say a huge thank you to every one that came along and supported my Paper-Craft Event Day on Saturday. What a fantastic day we had and thank you for all your lovely comments and feedback that I got from you all. It is always lovely to see a lot of my regular faces but thrilling to see new faces and blasts from the past that I used to teach coming back again.
I thought I would post some pictures that Paul (my better half) took on the day for those of you that missed out.

First is a few of the hall before we opened, we were all a little nervous and finishing the last minute touches but my girls all seemed to be camera shy!!.....

I opened the doors and in they came, there was a lovely crafty buzz about.....

A big thank you to my sister Jo who did the catering with the mouthwatering savouries and cakes ( I think you were all impressed Hmmmm!!) and my nieces Chloe who helped with the food and Heidi that ran the Craft Raffle for Breast cancer care. Unfortunately Paul missed out on a photo of the food but did manage to polish off a good bit of it.....

The great news is we managed to raise £70.00 for Breast Cancer Care, so thanks to you all for supporting the cause. the winners were...

Ist Prize - Over £50 worth of Craft goodies- - - Janet Kemp
2nd Prize - Over £25 worth of Craft goodies- - - Carole Cheeseman
3rd Prize - Over £25 worth of Craft goodies- - - Valerie Rodrigez

So well done to you all!

Lots of you have been asking if I will do another event and the good news is that as long as I can secure the hall for another Saturday I will be hosting a Christmas Event.
The classes are all fully booked and we have some reserves but you are more than welcome to ring me on 01622 675078 to book a reserve place as there are cancellations that come up from time to time.
PLEASE REMEMBER even if you are not booked on a workshop you are more than welcome to come over to the hall on a class day and visit the full on site Craft Shop. the next class is 5th August. the shop will be open from 2.30pm until 9.30pm and is at
Fant Hall,Barming,ME16 8NN.

Well all that is left to say is Thank you to all my girls that helped make the day special: Rosemary, Suzanne, Cazza, Caroline and Julie and not to forget Jean.
A special get well soon for Caroline who broke her foot the week of the event and was not able to demonstrate and was gutted but made some beautiful samples and last but not least to Paul my rock that has to put up with me!!!

Well I am going to sign off now as it is starting to sound like an Oscar speech he,he!!

Big Hugs Lisa.B.X
