Well it has been a week today since the Stitches & Craft Show finished and it has taken me this long to catch my breath! I was very pleased at how our stand came together and here are the pics and some thank yous of course.

Firstly thanks to all our online customers who dropped by and said hello. It was so good to put faces to the names. It was also great to chat to the extremely talented crafting community and designers in the Incubator who are a lovely bunch of really down to earth people.

A HUGE thanks to Tara the extremely talented designer who designed those beautiful banners you can see. Tara, you did an amazing job which far exceeded what I had imagined! Anyone requiring graphic design should definately take a look over here.

Shannon, what can I say you have been an awesome friend to me, always make me smile and your textiles are ACE! Thanks for all your help leading up to and during the show and particularly for putting up with me in my deliriously tired state. Love, Love, Love the new design!

Customers could not get enough of Shannon's fabulous hand screen printed textiles and she even received a couple of requests for her autograph on her fab drawings!

A big thanks to both Amy (above) and Sarah (no pic I am afraid) who did a fantastic job over the 5 days. You guys have kind of saved my life of late and I much appreciate your efforts.

Shannon's badges ran out the door and Kate from 'Please Eloise' made some fantastic hair accessories and buttons which were also very popular.

Thanks to Beth & Jeff for doing a GRAND job minding the girls and to Dave you are amazing and my rock.

Well done to Living Creatively for pulling off a very cool 'new look' show and we look forward to next year!

Stay tuned over the coming weeks as we do our best to upload many new fabrics and patterns into the store.

You were crazy busy Sat morning so I just grabbed some goodies and kept going.
Glad it was a success for you and maybe we will get to chat next time!

your stand was amazing - everytime I walked by it was absolutely covered in people! Hope it was a good show for you - by all reports it sounds like it.
