Summer/Autumn Newletter and Classes List

Hello Crafters,
I seem to have quite a lot to tell you this month so why don't you grab a cuppa, find a nice seat and I'll begin.
Firstly, I would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who sponsored Richard on his run to raise money for Marie Curie. Unfortunately he wasn't able to complete the race (he tore his calf muscle and spent six weeks on crutches!) But with your help he managed to raise £ 505. So thank you very much.
Classes start again at the end of this month. I think we have a good mix of card making, scrapbooking and jewellery. And of course we will be beginning Christmas!
I think a couple of the projects would make lovely Christmas gifts and would be something different and more personal. Details are overleaf and we start taking bookings on:

Saturday 25th July at 9.30am*

Tuesday 4th August sees the start of our Massive Summer Sale. We are reducing lots of products with 50% or more off some items in order to make space for new stock and brand new product lines. The Sale will run until the 29th of August. So why don't you head down to see us and pick up some real bargains.
Our Christmas stock is on order and should be with us in early August. If you're not quite ready to think about Christmas yet then we do have some lovely new stock in. We have just received some fabulous 12x12 papers from Graphic 45. They are really different (quite 1930's) and there are designs suitable for men and women. I also have the two latest ranges from Basic Grey- Lemonade and June Bug. They're both lovely and colourful for the summer. Also in are bead packs from The Bead Cafe (only £3.99) with a great selection of sizes and colours, and beautiful coloured wire from the Scientific Wire Company.
We've also got some of the basics back in stock including black dye ink and the removable glue that I'm always raving about in classes!
Last but not Least, Crafters and Co will be closed for a week from Monday 31st August and we will open again on Tuesday 8th September, as I hope to be on Holiday!
I think that is everything. I hope to see you soon, until then, Happy Crafting,


*As usual you may book in person or by telephone. Also we do ask for payment in advance for classes as we operate a waiting list. If you need to cancel a class and you give us 72 hours notice we can use the waiting list and offer you a full refund.
