NEC HobbyCrafts is on for 4 days in Birmingham, UK from Thursday 25th to Sun 28th March. 4 days of demos, new products and new stamps. Our stand is F02. Write it down as I'm not sure if we made the showguide but we are near the demonstration forum. Come in the main entrance and turn left. Go towards the end/ demo area and you will see Once upon a stamp on your left. Turn right into the aisle (second to last aisle) and we are in the first block on the right opposite Craft Superstore.
2 weeks after that we will be in Paris for Version Scrap. April 9,10,11. This is a show I have attended for the last 3 years to teach classes and make and takes. This time we shall exhibit with our own stand. If you are looking for an excuse to have a weekend in Paris this is it! It is a fabulous show. They have many great teachers such as France's own many stars like Celine Navarro, Manuela Jamet and Karine, or les Americans also put in an appearance such as Teresa Collins, Debbie Schuh, Donna Downey.
As well as great teachers, there are also many exhibitors, and with some really interesting and different products. Then when its time for lunch, you sit down for a quiche or crepe with a glass of wine or a beer! Fabulous daaaahling!!
The Version Scrap venue is in the midst of Parc Floral which is most beautiful at this spring time of year, and has easy metro access. Take the yellow line (number 1) and get off at the last stop, Chateau de Vincennes, there is then the cutest little trains (les Navettes) take you direct to the venue or you can have a lovely 15 min walk thru the park if you prefer. Beautiful way to start the day.
