New Events; Workshops; Video's and Blog Candy!

There is so much to tell you, that I will not be able to get it all into one post - so I will start with the BIG things!!
Events, Workshops & Demonstration Days
I am really, really excited to tell you about some new Demo Days, Events & Workshops that I have just booked into my diary................
  • Saturday 20th August
    Demo Day at Paperwarehouse, Kendal
    A day of Christmas demonstrations with myself and others - I will be using Hero Arts & Stampendous stamps together with lots of different techniques!
  • Sunday 28th August
    Demo Day at Mountain Ash Crafts, Bobbington, West Midlands
    A full day of demonstrating with brand new of Woodware & Stix2 products including lots of stamping techniques!
  • Saturday 10th September
    Full DEMO DAY in aid of East Lancs Hospice at Crafty Company in Fleetwood.
    This is one of my favourite stores to visit and they have very kindly let me take over their store for this day with lots of my crafty friends!!! There will be lots of us all demonstrating different techniques and finishes together with a Make n Take table where you can actually make something on the day too! This wonderful shop also has a coffee shop too which has the most beautiful cakes and it is also right in the centre of Fleetwood - so plenty for your other halves to do whilst you enjoy yourself watching the many demonstrators! Entry is completely free - so come along and join in the fun with us! Going to be a great day!
  • Saturday 17th September
    Demo Day at Southport Craft Centre, Southport where I will be sharing lots of ideas & great new products
  • Sunday 25th September
    Just confirmed yesterday - I have finally found the perfect room to hold my own workshops in locally - Chorley, Lancashire!
    I will be teaching cardmaking in the morning and scrapbooking in the afternoon and I cannot wait!!
    Each workshop is priced at £15 each and I provide everything - all materials, tea and coffee - just bring your own tools such as scissors & trimmer.
    If you would like to book - drop me an email mrsashaw@googlemail.com - but, be quick as I am only taking 12 people on each workshop!
  • Saturday & Sunday 8th/9th October
    BIG Demonstration & Workshops Weekend at Papeterie, Aberdeen
    After the brilliant time I had at this wonderful store earlier in the year - I cannot wait to go back again.
    I will be demonstrating all day on the Saturday and then teaching cardmaking all day on the Sunday.
    To book and for full info - Give Papeterie a call on 01224 802337
    Cannot wait to go UP NORTH again!

QVC

Is also busy, busy, busy!!
There have been so many amazing shows recently for me including Dreamweaver; USArtquest; Steampunk and Clearance Hours - it has been brilliant to demonstrate to you lots of different products and techniques.
I have had lots of emails, messages and letters saying how much you have loved the recent shows - and I have also managed to put a few of the techniques I have showed you on to my You Tube page today in a bit more depth!
I have lots more coming so take a look at the ones so far here on my You Tube page: http://www.youtube.com/user/AmyShawCrafts
The dates and times of my QVC shows are on the right hand side - also check out the listings on QVC website as there are more shows all the time at the moment - so busy!!
We are getting more and more craft shows on QVC - not just the usual 2pm-4pm on a Tuesday. Isn't it great!? It is truly brilliant to have more shows and lots of different guests - we all bring something completely different to the shows! LOVE IT!
Well, here it is........................... BLOG CANDY!!!
Told you it was worth waiting for!!!!!
Cricut Machine - I have had this for a while now and only ever used it once so thought somebody else could make better use of it!!!
Now, as it is quite heavy - postage will have to be paid by yourself or, of course, as I travel all over the country - Another option is to meet up to hand over the prize in person - Maybe over a Starbucks!!!! LOL!!
To be in with a chance of winning, you MUST be a FOLLOWER - Just leave a comment to be put into the draw!
I will draw the winner on Sunday 21st August!!
Good Luck
Big Hugs
Amy
