Stevenage Craft Show

Well what a lovely weekend we've just had. Emma and I traveled down to Stevenage on Saturday to attend the craft show on Sunday. So here we are, made a bee line for the PA stand, Em is chatting to Leandra and Lin is busy demoing already!!

This was at the very beginning of the show before the crowds poured in.

And another of the isles.

Then people arrived, this is Karen and Ali watching Lin, Jo is chatting in the background with Liz and Em is shopping.

Ali, Em and I were just enjoying a sit down and a drink as Debs walked by. It was fab to finally meet Debs in the flesh. I did have to check with Ali that it was her before we called her over - lol.

Then on our travels with Ali we caught up with Jo.

Lin had been at a wedding and was running a tad late, so we all sat down for another drink and waited for her to arrive. We were sat next to the 'peel offs' stand, yes they do still sell them. The lady on the table next to us produced a wad of them from her carrier bag.

So after a few choice comments, we challenged Jo to make something with peel offs, this is the stand and the above photo has ideas of how to use them on it.

Jo was up for the challenge, so off she went to see what they had.

And this is what she bought!!! She's said that she is going to make something with them by next weekend, and she's got lots of witnesses to that!!

Then finally Lin arrived, but we'll let her off as she brought chocolate muffins with her.

Everyone then sort of disappeared off home and there were only a few of us left. Our train was at 10 to 4 and the show closed at 4, so here we are again, propping up the PA stand. Lin was making a demo piece for Em.

And Leandra made a demo piece for me, but she was on a mission as we had 25 minutes before we had to leave to get the train. The stamps used are all from the new Hot Picks plate 1504. I love that main image and asked if it can be made into a mini.

And this is what I bought.

It's a lovely little show and I would say it's on par with Donny Dome for those of you up north.

Thanks everyone for a lovely day xxx

Glad you're all home safely and thanks for a lovely rundown of the day. I was thinking of you all while I was slogging away in the garden most of the day, lol! Some nice stash you brought back with you too.

Sounds like you had a great time, Sam. It's brilliant meeting up with people at these shows, probably better than the shopping :) xx

Sounds like you had a great day! I so wish we could have met, but sadly I couldn't make it in the end. I can't wait to see what Jo makes with 'Peel offs'!!! they don't seem her type of thing at all! :)

Great write up and photos, Sam. Wish I'd been there. Agree that would be a great mini. Doesn't Helen always wear great clothes? Love that photo with Lin pointing like she's telling Lin b what to do next!!
