What's Coming Soon...

What a hectic time we've had - loads of new stock and products in. And some new staff members have joined the team and are busy learning the ropes. So I thought it was time to let you know what's coming soon to The Papeterie near you :D


We have some really exciting things coming soon - two of our most popular demonstrator/teachers will be here in June, then in July we have the most exciting news, the amazing Barbara Gray of Clarity Stamps is coming to show us all how it's done. What this woman doesn't know about stamping isn't worth knowing. We are incredibly privileged that she is coming so far North to see us, and we hope as many of you as possible will manage to come see Barbara on FRIDAY 20th July - yup it is a FRIDAY, so get your day off work/sickie booked now :)
Here's a wee taster, in case you haven't seen Barbara on Create & Craft TV or at any of the craft shows around the country





This Saturday (16th June) we have Debbi Glennie demonstrating colouring techniques with promarkers, flexmarkers and the brand-new-to-the-market Sakura colour pencils. Debbi will be showing you how to use the pencils with your alcohol markers and how you can use both on kraft card. Come and see Debbi in action between 10am and 12.30pm. Debbi's class is full but there is a waiting list in case of cancellations and for future classes.


Local celebrity crafter Kath Stewart is returning the following Saturday (23rd June) with another fabulous demonstration featuring the fabulous new Tim Holtz Distress Markers, along with a whole host of other Tim Holtz goodies. Come along and be inspired between 10.30am and 12.30pm. There are still a few places on Kath's class in the afternoon, definitely not to be missed - all those attending the class get 10% discount on all Tim Holtz products purchased on the day. Remember to phone or pop in to book your place.


The Papeterie's very own Charlotte Mitchell is holding another of her very popular Make Your Own Wedding Stationery classes on Sunday 24th June. At this class you will learn how to make everything from Save-The-Date's to Order of Service. Take away the samples you make for inspiration, a great day out and we even provide a free finger buffet. Booking is a must for this class, as always call 01224 802337 to reserve your place.


We'll be back later this week with some more info about the Altered Art Day we are having on Sunday 15th July. The Altered Art evening we held back on the 3rd May was a huge success, so Kath, Charlotte and Debbi are going to be back for a bigger and better day event - watch this space :)
