Dear Customers 

 

Here we are again – a small list to get us through the summer …!! 

 

We are delighted to welcome Amanda (Mandy) Branston to the shop – a very talented artist/instructor who loves all forms of art (take a look at her blog - http://amandabranstoncreateandimages.blogspot.co.uk).  Mandy will be doing a mixed media canvas with us this time – lots of great ideas to mix and match products that you probably already have! 

 

We are also welcoming back both John Lockwood and Jane Gill, as well as the regular parchment sessions with Marilyn.  

 

Michelle Johnson from Stix2 will be coming along to inspire you with – lots of different ideas for you to try; and Linda Jones is demonstrating the Groovi parchment system.  Check through the programme for the dates. 

 

If it’s a die cutting class – please bring your machine along if you can. 

 

Our regular sessions continue, with crochet the first Monday of the month and another group for beginners on the second Monday of the month.   If you are working on a project and are stuck, bring it along – or if you are a complete novice we can start with the basics.  Projects are not listed – we will discuss on the day what we are going to do next time.  PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE NO CROCHET SESSIONS IN AUGUST. 

 

We are still continuing with the knit and natter on the third Wednesday of the month and the Tuesday Club on the first Tuesday of the month.  The Tuesday Club proved popular so we will continue with the second session which will be the first Wednesday morning of each month. 

 

With all classes please ring the day before to confirm that the class is running - sometimes the tutors are ill or the class has not filled up.  We are continuing with taking payment at the start of the class and your receipt will entitle you to a 10% discount on any goods purchased on the day of your class.  This discount excludes the cost of the class, magazines and already discounted items.   

 

Should you need to cancel a class you will not incur a charge if you cancel 7 days prior to the class.  If it is shorter notice than this then you will be charged half the price of the class if we are unable to fill the place. 

 

Even if you have booked in previously with a tutor can you please confirm with the shop that you will be attending.  A couple of dates have shown as full in the shop and we were turning away people only to find there was ample space on the day.   

 

We would continue to ask you all to please use the front door when you come for a class – it can be quite dangerous at the rear of the shop with racking and boxes and we would like to avoid any accidents! 

 

If you do not currently receive the class list by email and would like to do so, please let us know and we can add you to the list.  

 

Next local show we are attending is 8 July - Newbury 

                                                             

Hope to see you all soon 

Jane and the Team
