Spring/Summer Newsletter 09

Hello Crafters!

It is with much regret that I start this letter with the sad news of the death of Audrey Lappin. Not only was Audrey a much loved family member (Richard's Mum and my 'Outlaw') but also an invaluable member of the Crafters and Co team and my longest serving member of staff. We will miss her very much.

This Saturday we will be cheering Richard on as he runs the 'Highland Fling' over in Scotland. He aims to complete the 53 mile course in around 14 hours and in doing so hopes to raise as much money as possible for Marie Curie Cancer Care in memory of his Mum. If you would like to support his efforts you can donate online at:

I would like to also take this opportunity to thank so many of you for your kind words and understanding over the last few weeks. Your support has meant an awful lot to both Richard and me.

Classes are starting again and we have an exciting mix of cardmaking, scrapbooking and jewellery making workshops. The full details are overleaf. We will start taking bookings on:

Saturday 2nd May 2009 at 9.30 am

As usual we will be asking for payment in advance although you are entitled to a full refund if you give us 72 hours notice of cancellation. This enables us to make full use of our waiting lists.

Once again we have lots of lovely new products in store including two new ranges of paper from Basic Grey- Lime Rickey (really vibrant colours which are great for kids pages and cards) and Wisteria ( a lovely blend of purples, pale green and taupe- ideal for older sepia photos) And Mimosa (pinks and peaches on pearl or glittery backgrounds) from SEI.
The Edwin and Tilda stamps have arrived from Magnolia as well as a good selection of Acrylic stamps from Prima, Stampendous and Woodware.
We have also got the Water Colour Stamps back in from HobbyArt. These proved to be very popular and now there are some lovely new designs to compliment the range.
I've also had a delivery of polystyrene cubes, so I hope to have the packs for the Photo Cubes ready very soon.
For the Jewellery makers amongst you we have some fantastic new stock. Semi-precious stones from Ilona Biggins including; blue goldstone; various Agates; Onyx, Dumar Stone and Paua Shell. We also have deep coloured crystals and metallic glass beads by the gramme as well as a good stock of the usual selection.
I think that's most things for now. I look forward to seeing you soon.
Until then Happy Crafting!!!


PS. Don't forget our Second Saturday Specials. The last 3 months have seen fantastic offers on Rubber Stamps, Scrapbooking Papers and Jewellery. So don't miss out on the next one on the 9th May!
