Isn’t it just gorgeous! I hope everyone of you in Ireland is getting a chance to get out in the sun! I spent yesterday afternoon on a sandy lake shore with my 3.5 year old. He was buliding sand castles but you should have seen his face when he walked into the water. It may be hot, but the water is freeeeezing!!!!
Getting back to crafty business. I have ironed out the details for the CHA Jamboree on the 15th April and it’s going to be great fun, am sooooo looking forward to it!
Doors will open at 9.30am to 5.30(ish) pm
We will have a demo table set up with lots of goodies for you to play with. Mandy, Anne and Eve (of Crafty Queens fame) will be demoing from here at different times throughout the day, starting from 10am.
Of course there will be crop space for everyone, so bring your favourite goodies and unfinished projects along, and hopefully you will have time to work on them inbetween lol! We will also have challenges with great prizes; in the classroom, crop space and demo area so watch out for those; and finally we will have our Create with Kate Shop with all those lovely CHA releases!
Cost: There is an entry charge of €10, which gives you cropping space, demo/makes and takes and challenges. Classes cost extra; one class is €25 and to do the two classes is €45. To book your place for any of the above, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me on 0879481196
