If you don't know about, or haven't heard about this annual event at The Craft Barn, Surrey, UK, then you need to know! Every year Sandy and her amazing team put on this massive event, and its free! You just rock on up to see at least 25 demonstrators using all kinds of products from all kinds of companies. And then you can go to the shop and buy whatever you have seen demoed. It's a fantastic event, and a wonderful chance to chat to the demonstrators, ask questions etc. and its all happening next weekend, June 1st and 2nd.
As you may know, the Craft Barn has recently moved to a brand new location near Redhill, not too far from where they were previously in Lingfield. It's still a barn, but bigger, and newer, and full to the brim with all your favourite crafting products. The new address is The Craft Barn, Priory Farm, Sandy Lane, South Nutfield, Surrey RH1 4EJ ph 0844 800 8551 or 01737 822 961
There will be several very talented people demoing with PaperArtsy products: Lin Brown (her own Eclectica series of stamps dies, and a new product...see below..., Fresco paints, and Grunge Paste), Jo Firth-Young (with her own stamps, but specifically 3 new stamp sets, and 6 new minis, Frescos), Kay Carley (Jo's flower stamps with Copic Markers), Helen Chilton (Lynne Perrella stamps, Frescos & Grunge Paste), Di Oliver and Karen Gist (Tando Creative chipboard with Fresco paints and Lynne Perrella stamps) and Leandra (many PaperArtsy products and Treasure Gold).
This year we will be demoing in 3 marquees on site. Near the shop there is a fantastic farm shop selling amazing food, and across the road there is a Garden Centre with a superb cafe, but if I were you I would bring a packed lunch just in case those options are really busy. You don't want to miss out on your shopping time!!
So especially for this occasion, we have developed some very cool new products. We will have 2 limited edition colours of Treasure Gold, an amazing steel blue and a lovely green.
We have also got 6 sets of chipboard shapes, these match Lin Brown's Eclectica series of stamps, but as you can see from the product shots below, they are versatile for use with other stamps too!! In fact, they look fantastic with our Lynne Perella stamps too, and I can see Lin will be adding some personality to her flower arrangements with a few flower faces! You get 2 of each of the different shapes in a bag for £2.50
And Jo Firth-Young has also been a busy bee. She has developed 3 new sets of JOFY collection large stamp sets, and 6 new minis. These all come individually trimmed on EZ mount foam! More things for your wish list!!
The launch of all these products will be at the Craft Barn Extravaganza! So please, do come along and make it a fantastic occasion for Sandy and her team at this wonderful new location! It's going to be amazing.
It's next weekend, June 1st and 2nd I hope to see you there !
