What's been going on this weekend ...?

... well Saturday proved to be a very busy day for the staff, with lots going on in two different locations!

Our own Debbi Glenni was busy teaching at the Discovery Awards on behalf of The Papeterie at the Beach Ballroom.  Here's a sneaky peak of what her students were up to.   I'm sure Debbi will be sharing with you the finished projects later in the week!


Debbi wasn't the only one to be teaching on Saturday.  Our very own Charlotte Mitchell was teaching a much requested Bind-it-All class.  This class proved to be very popular, helping crafters address any problems they had using the machine and giving much inspiration for future projects!  The feedback was very positive, who knows, we may persuade Charlotte to run another Bind-it-All class in the future.
 
Here's one of our regular crafter's, makes from the day!  Thank you Tina for sharing your photos of your wonderful projects!
 



 

Of course, Saturday and Sunday is always the busiest time for wedding appointments, so it was a busy weekend!
