Would you like to spend a crafty day at The Craft Barn?
They are hosting a First Saturday Demo Day on Saturday 7th May with Karen Maccoy, Carole Cann and Lina McDermott, who will be focusing on masculine cards and gifts ready for Father’s day. This will be such a benefit for anyone who struggles with ideas for the men in our lives.

Also, over the weekend of Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of June they will be holding another EXTRAVAGANZA weekend, these are really exciting and have 24 demonstrators in attendance! This year the theme will be 'The Best of British', focussing on products manufactured in the UK.
The demonstrations are great for picking up tips and techniques, and best of all the demos are FREE, and run continuously throughout both days, so you don't need to book in advance - just turn up and watch! :)
