Newsletter 28th May

Hi Everybody

Can you believe that it is going to be June next week? Where has this year gone? AND the summer is only just starting - or has it been and gone?

Don't worry about making a cup of tea, this is just going to be a very quick one. As you can see, it is mid-morning (not middle of the night!) so I should be working hard in the shop - not writing a newsletter. But I have hidden away in the office and left Nicky to mind the shops, naughty girl aren't I?

Anyway, I just wanted to thank everybody for their efforts with the Crafters Car Boot sale the other week. Well done to everybody that came with their car boots. Thank you also to Pauline, Susan and Joanna who came with biscuits and cakes for us to sell with the cups of tea and coffee (they went down very well!). Thank you to everybody who donated something for the sale table and thank you to all who put something into the rattle tins & buckets at the entrance and by the tills. AND the weather was good - bit of a cold wind, but the sun stayed out.

It was a great success and we raised £313.56 for Cancer Research. Well done!

So now we are onto Half-term - which means, of course, that we bring Ruth out, dust her down and put her up in the playroom to entertain the little darlings. She has come up with two lovely designs for a necklace and a bracelet. As usual the classes are on Tuesday and Thursday mornings 10.30 'til 12.30 and cost £10.

Tomorrow afternoon (Saturday) there is a Necklace and Natter session in the bead shop. Come along and have a go at making a necklace with Ruth (I will be out to begin with, but should be back mid-afternoon), enjoy a cup of tea and a chatter with others. You can choose your own design and we will be on hand to help you, should you need it. The time is 2 'til 4, it costs £7.50 + the cost of the beads (all findings are included in the cost). See you there!

Then we are back to routine - ProMarker Club on the first Saturday, Jo Sonjas second Saturday etc.

You must look out for the ProMarker challenge cards that the Ladies have made (Joanna will be putting them on the blog this weekend). The Ladies have come up trumps and made some stunning cards. Please make sure you put in a vote!! Check out or look at them in the shop.

What else? Ah, 2 things - if you are up in Edinburgh next week come and visit me at the Corn Exchange for the Art Stamp Show (I understand that the Newbury tickets will be in the shop sometime in the next week) and also watch out for exciting news about our on-line shop. More about that in the next newsletter.

Have a good weekend and I will see you in the shop.

With best wishes

Lynn & the Girls.

PS - told you it was a quick one!!!!
