Sunday 28 August 2011


You may have noticed that I have been a bit quiet on here, Facebook and Twitter recently . . . well, I did sneak off on a little holiday.

We had a lovely quiet week in France with no internet access. I thought I would find it really hard with no internet for a whole week but it was surprisingly easy and very relaxing. I even managed to get myself a suntan, most of you probably wouldn't notice any difference but I've got white bits - and I never tan!!!

But now it is back to work and straight in at the deep end, Wednesday we leave for the Stitch & Creative Craft Show in Manchester - hopefully we will see some of you there.

Stamperama & Autumn Shows 2011

Whilst we are busy setting up Stamperama ready for Sunday I thought I'd share with you the shows we are going to be at this autumn:

So obviously, we have Stamperama @ Stevenage Arts & Leisure Centre on Sunday 14th August 10am-4pm. We have approx 30 exhibitors at the show including Clarity Stamps, Little Claire, Craftwork Cards plus more.

Next, September 1st-3rd we are in Manchester @ the SCC show. This is in a new venue next to the Trafford Centre so I have high hopes for our evening entertainment - shopping!

The following weekend is GNPE @ Harrogate 10th-11th September. This show is organised by Craftwork Cards.

We then have a weekend off before The Big Stamp Show @ Alexandra Palace 24th-25th September. I've always had a soft spot for Alexandra Palace as I spent many a Sunday there ice-skating during my teenage years, and the view of London is amazing.

These are the only shows we are attending for the rest of this year, it just so happens 3 of them are in the same month - oooh that will be tough!

In 2012 Stamperama is 12th February and 12th August.

Thursday 11 August 2011


Well, I think we are almost ready!
If there is something specific you want to get from us at the show please call and let us know, just in case we have forgotten to pack it.

Remember to dress for the warm weather, even if it is raining outside it gets warm in that hall.

If you have your advance tickets you can get into the show early, hopefully 9.30am if the aisles are clear. For everyone else the show opens at 10am.

We have lots of fab exhibitors, you can see a list of them all here on

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday
