Well, March has been a very busy month for us here at the Chesterfield store with lots happening since we last posted - so here's a little round-up of all the things we've been up to over the last few weeks.
Debbie Fisher Workshop
We welcomed Debbie Fisher to our store earlier in the month, who held weekend workshops for our lovely crafters who joined in the fun and made some beautiful paper baskets using the latest 'Shabby Chic' Signature Collection by Sara Davies, which is now available in-store. Everyone who attended the workshops thoroughly enjoyed themselves, as did Debbie, and we look forward to seeing her again soon!
International Quilting Day
From the 14th - 19th March, we celebrated 'International Quilting Day', which included a visit from the very lovely Lizzy Curtis on the Saturday who held one hour workshops throughout the day. We also had our very own team member, Suzanne, demonstrating some of the new Debbie Shore and Threaders products on the Sunday.
Comic Relief Chesterfield Style
Heaps of fun was had by all on the 24th March as we spent the day raising money for Comic Relief. There was lots of tasty cakes and buns on the 'Bake Sale', together with a 'Guess the Teddy Bear Name' and 'Guess How Many Buttons in the Jar', a huge tombola and a sale of some of our design team cards. So far we have raised over £300 for this worthwhile cause.
Colouring Weekend with Sandra Rushton
Last weekend the very talented Sandra Rushton joined us in store for a demonstration of her own designs, along with the Spectrum Noir colouring range. She also held a workshop on the Sunday, where lots of our lovely customers made a card and matching envelope using designs from Sandra's range.
Dates for your Diary
Join us for 'International Purple Day' on Friday 31st March, where we will have lots of 'purple' products at some very special prices because you know just how much we love purple!
On Saturday 1st April we have our very own Debby Robinson demonstrating the new 'Temptingly Tropical' stamp range by Sheena Douglass, together with the 'Shabby Chic' Signature Collection by Sara Davies - so why not pop by and say 'hello'.
Also, our brand new 'Easter Wishes' brochure is now available in store and online, detailing all the new classes, clubs and events for the month of April. Book now!
Well that's all for now, so crafty hugs until next time.
From everyone at Team Chesterfield
