Notes From Stitches

On Sunday we went for a day trip to Birmingham NEC for Stitches trade show. We had already placed the majority of our orders either direct with manufacturers or with distributors since CHA however it is always nice to get an up close look at some of the products on offer and also to see what's new or interesting.

I forgot my camera but took a few snaps with my phone.

In terms of scrapbooking things we saw some Bo Bunny, some Fancy Pants and some Carta Bella which we didn't already have on order but will order now. Also some of the things which didn't look so good in the manufacturers previews were much nicer in real life :)
 

Of course it is lovely to wander round the show and admire all the lovely samples - the Paperartsy stand didn't disappoint with an array of beautiful samples.

 
And of course there are always those that go the extra mile - for example this car which was being decorated in decopatch!!!


 Sorry there are not more photos, can't believe I forgot the camera! I also picked up some make & take ideas for the retreat :)

Keep an eye out for more products arriving in store over the coming weeks as the CHA and Stitches orders come in.

  1. LOL - I once went to Chester to photograph their decorated rhinos ... and left the camera behind! I had to buy a disposable camera as my phone only makes phone calls!
