Chesterfield Crafternoon for the Mind Charity


Afternoon Crafters!  We held our first Crafternoon last Friday in store all in aid of raising money for the Mind Charity.  All that attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves and got to get involved with make and takes, using our core products at Crafter’s Companion and much more.  The Colorista range was very popular with everyone as you can see from the photos below.  Some of the ladies that came had not used some of the Spectrum Noir markers before and were impressed with the new Illustrator marker pens and the lovely Sparkle pens.

The ladies got to enjoy some lovely refreshments and we held a prize raffle with some fabulous Crafter’s Companion goody bags up for grabs.  All in all we had a lovely time and raised some money for the Mind Charity.

On Saturday we had the very lovely & talented Dawn Macfie  in store demonstrating the Gemini machine and all of its versatile uses, the Die-sire Everyday dies and the Colorista stamps, marker pens, pencils and pads.  She showed our customers the many wonderful ways that you can use these lovely products.  Dawn used the Colorista pads here along with the paper maché words from Creativ.

As with our last post we thought doing a customer feature would be nice again so this week its the turn of our youngest crafter Hannah who regularly visits us in-store with her lovely mum. Hannah came into store this weekend to give us an hand-made Christmas card, that she made using pixie powders from the cosmic shimmer range and Nuvo drops by Tonic for decoration.  Hannah brought in for Debby, our store supervisor, a beautiful hand-made Christmas decoration which wowed alot of our customers with its beautiful detail and sparkle!  Hannah shared with us her wish list that she wants for Christmas and on top of that list is a Gemini machine….Sara Davies watch out we have a very talented young crafter on our hands!  Take a look at Hannah’s lovely work below:


Lovely work Hannah and thank you !

Friday saw the launch of Sheena Douglass’s newest range…the Swinging 60’s and they have proved to be very popular in store with our customers, which is no surprise to us as they are utterly funky & fabulous!   There are 12 stencils and 6 rubber stamps  in total in this range and are all available in the Chesterfield store.

This Saturday & Sunday we have the lovely Debbie Shore in-store demonstrating some of her amazing products…booking is advisable as there are limited spaces available.  This is a FREE demo and you can book by clicking this link


We look forward to seeing you in store..and again, thank you to all who supported the cause to raise money for the Mind Charity. The Aycliffe store raised a bunch of money as well as our online crafting community. We can’t wait to tell you the total raised!
