Read All About It!


Good Evening Crafters,
We are back, exhausted and excited from our trip to the Craft Hobby and Stitch trade fair in Birmingham. There were over 250 stands to drool over and lots of demonstrations to watch in awe. The first day we tried to look at EVERY stall to get an idea what we should buy and if there were any new trends.
Once back at the hotel we had a working evening meal, preparing orders to place and deciding which companies to revisit to place orders. It was almost midnight when we went to bed. I set my alarm for 6.15 and a message came up “the alarm is set for 6 hrs and 30 mins – not much rest for the wicked!
Breakfast at 7, leave hotel at 8, enter show at 9 with only 22 stalls to go back to!
There were a few demonstration of polymer clay (Fimo), some models but also beads, there were all amazing.

Other demonstrations included Spectrum Noir, Ebosser, Zentangle, Stamping, Mixed Media, Masking , Stencils and Sugar Craft to name but a few
So, what will you be seeing new in the jewellery section in the coming months?
We are expecting BEAUTIFUL diamante clasps which will team so well with the Tiara kits and components, new range of watch faces, new beads and charms.

We are still investigating new ranges of crystals and seed beads – watch this space!
Also we are all very excited about two new ranges of Deco Art paints, I can’t wait to get my hands on the acrylic paints which I feel will work so well on jewellery, there are four interference colours, which if small drops are placed onto a wet standard coloured base coat it will migrate and blend with the background and give amazing marbled enamel effects. Oh I can’t wait!
So, that is it for jewellery related stock, I will leave the crafty things for Janet to enthuse about.
Carry on Crafting,
