We drove down to Birmingham yesterday to attend the Stitches Trade show, at the NEC, with Carol and Fred of Stampattack and had a really good, but tiring day there. Not as many demos on the stands as usual but we did think that the event was quite sophisticated in it's staging, which I really enjoyed.
Carol braved through it cheerfully, despite having had an operation only 10 days ago, but she wizzed around happily in her motorised "turbo charged" mobility vehicle.
I loved the Sissix displays in so many different themes.
Everyone adored this paper peacock dress, which I think was also at CHA
We had a chat and a laugh with Dyan Reaveley and watched her demo
Love her giant polymer masks and stamps for journalling
Carol found the biggest owl ever
Amazing pieces of art from Andy Skinner
Last but not least we met up with lovely Leandra of PaperArtsy and snapped this pic especially for my dear friend Dolores. We're all colour co-ordinated!
Leandra had finished demming and apologised that she didn't have any samples for me to send to Dolores, as they'd all be given away.
I didn't see another WOYWW badge all day although mine was proudly pinned on. It was also good to see Jennie Artistic Stamper a couple of times.
