Dates for your diary

As part of the blog we thought you might like to know about up and coming craft shows, so here is our first one, should you fancy travelling down to Birmingham.    I have been to this show several times, and yes, since I moved to Pocklington I've been.  It's a great show with all sorts of crafts on offer.

NEC Birmingham

4th - 7th November 2010

As the UK’s largest Creative Crafts Event, the popular Hobbycrafts show brings together celebrities of TV and print, together with craft enthusiasts both young and old alike. Show visitors can share what has become THE show for inspiration, education, hands-on features and an unrivalled choice of supplies and can enjoy the diverse creativity on show from creative craft artists, guilds and demonstrators.
There will be plenty of new product launches alongside the traditional well-loved brands. Children’s craft kits, pixel art, papercraft supplies, candlemaking, craft holidays, glasscraft, lampwork kits, home d├ęcor, jewellery-making and much more besides.
Do you like to make your own Christmas cards or presents? If you do, then this show is definitely for you! Not only will you be saving money by making gifts and treats yourself, you will be giving a truly personalised present.

Tickets to this show also allow entrance to Art Materials Live and Crafts for Christmas.

Know of a show, then drop me an email and we'll pop it on the blog!

Don't forget your lunch!

It's not long now until our next crop and this time it's a long one as we'll be there from 10:30 am until 3:30pm, so don't forget your lunch and bring along a mug if you want decent sized cuppa's throughout the day.

If you are taking part in the classes we have lined up for you then you'll need to bring along your basic tool kit which should look like this....

Paper trimmer
Dry adhesive (DST/tape runner)
Glue dots
Foam pads (late addition - sorry)
Cutting mat, knife and steel ruler.
Black journaling pen
Brown ink pad (for direct to paper use)
Black ink pad
Large needle
If you have them a small alphabet stamp set.  Don't worry if you don't have any.

And the photo's needed to complete the classes!

If you have any questions at all about the classes, please email me at  vicki.abrathat@gmail.com , but note it is now too late to order a kit for the next crop.
