Sue Wilson and Julia Watts Visit - Day Two

It's Sunday and it's day two of our visit from our two special visitors, Sue Wilson and 

Today saw Julia teaching classes while Sue spent the day demonstrating in our big classroom. Lots of people also returned for day two.  We've had visitors who have traveled from Edinburgh and  from Inverness to join us for a weekend of crafting workshops and free demonstrations.

I was fortunate enough to land myself a place on Julia's class today.  We made a lovely card which had us using lots of techniques and several dies.  We were kept very busy, so we were all very well behaved!!

Here are some photos from the first class.

A bit of inking inside the die

Julia demonstrating one of the flowers from the card, 
will be using this technique in the future for definite.

The finished piece of art!

Meanwhile ... in the large classroom ...

... Sue is busy demonstrating lots of techniques,
 and there were plenty of samples to inspire!

Speaking of samples ... here are just 'some' of the beautiful 
samples brought along with Sue to inspire your creativity!

While all this lovely creativity was going on, one of our regular tutors, Jean Ingram, was working her little socks off selling raffle tickets for two prize draws.  The grand prize draw will take place on August 1st.  The lucky winners will win a place on our craft retreat in September.  Tickets can still be bought by contacting the shop on Tel 802337.  We also had regular draws throughout Saturday and Sunday where winners won cards very kindly made and donated by Julia and Sue.  All donations from raffle sales and tea/coffee will be going towards our chosen charity, Archway.

Here are some of the cards from the raffle.
(I believe we still have some available and there will be more opportunities to win)!
