I hope this newsletter finds you well and filled with creative inspiration. I wanted to share my exciting experiences since last Thursday when I embarked on a fantastic journey to the Creative Craft Show at the NEC. The show has been an absolute whirlwind of creativity, connections, and shared passion for all things stitching and crafts.
From the moment I arrived, I was brimming with hope and enthusiasm, ready to embrace each day with open arms. The atmosphere at the show is electric, and I've had the pleasure of meeting both old friends and making wonderful new ones. It's truly fabulous to connect with people who share our love for sewing and crafting.
My days have been a joyful blend of engaging with visitors at my stand, demonstrating various techniques, and imparting knowledge through teaching sessions. The eagerness and curiosity of those who stop by have been truly inspiring, reminding me of the beauty in shared creative journeys.
However, as the sun sets on each day at the show, I must admit that I return to my hotel absolutely exhausted. But, it's a good kind of exhaustion, one filled with a sense of accomplishment and gratitude for the lovely visitors and fellow traders I've had the privilege to interact with.
Undoubtedly, being a part of such an event is hard work, and it doesn't end when I return home. Unpacking and restocking my supplies is the first order of business. Additionally, I'm diligently following up on the suggestions and emails I've received during the show, eager to nurture the connections made.
And then, the cycle begins anew as I start planning for the next adventure. The process of envisioning what's next, selecting the perfect fabrics and threads, and preparing to share the joy of mixed media textile art with even more people is both exciting and fulfilling.
I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you who visited my stand, attended my sessions, and shared your enthusiasm. Your support and passion fuel my own, and I can't wait to continue this creative journey together.
Stay tuned for more updates, and if you haven't had the chance to visit the show yet, I hope to see you at one of the future events.
Wishing you endless inspiration and stitches,
