Hello there crafters,
Welcome back - it's been a while since we last posted, but we wanted to let you know what we've been up to and also give you some details of our up and coming events.
We had a visit from the lovely Suzie Candlin back in May to demonstrate the Cricut machine and we now stock the 'Cricut Explore Air 2' machine and lots of accessories to go with it.
Once again, the Leonie workshops in June proved very popular here in store - everyone had a fantastic day learning lots of new techniques using some of Leonie's products.
Lots of our ladies (and gentlemen) attended the sewing workshops on the 24th June and learned many valuable tips and techniques to use in their sewing endeavours. They finished the day having made their very own bags - so a big thank you to Sam for coming along and running the classes.
Getting Groovi with Josie and Chris
At the beginning of July we held a 'Groovi' weekend where our resident parchment experts, Josie and Chris, held a demonstration day, together with workshops the following day to make some beautiful parchment cards.
Scandinavian Christmas VIP Party
We had our very first 'lock-in' on Monday 3rd July to celebrate the launch of Sara's newest Signature collection - 'Scandinavian Christmas'. Lots of our lovely VIP customers joined us in store to watch the launch on Hochanda and enjoy some festive treats along the way.
Fund Raising for Bluebell Wood Hospice
Our 'Knitathon' is doing fabulously well - we are currently raising money for the Children's Hospice at Bluebell Wood by trying to knit a scarf that will stretch all the way around our store! The staff and customers have made a great start, but if you are popping in to store why not come and help us out by knitting a few rows.
Dates for your Diary
Saturday 29th July - Sheena Douglass workshops (we still have a few places available)
Saturday 5th August - Jennie Rayment will be back in store holding classes throughout the day.
Sunday 6th August - we are holding a 'Strawberry Tea' event throughout the day to raise money for 'Breast Cancer Care' where you can come along and enjoy a 'Make and Take', together with some tea and cake.
Sunday 13th August - Colouring Day - Some of our colouring experts will be in store to demonstrate lots of items from our Spectrum Noir range, including Aqua markers, AquaBlend pencils, the new Artliners, Colorista Dark and Sparkle Pens to name a few. Our very own Sarah Lou will also be showing you her designer shoes using our Spectrum Noir pen collection.

Well that's all for now, so crafty hugs until next time.
From everyone at Team Chesterfield
