This past weekend, my friend and I attended the local tradeshow in Abbottsford and we had a blast seeing all the new stuff the vendors had to offer. I'll give you a photo review of all the stuff! Keep in mind that the show caters more so to the stitches side (sewing & quilting) but I took some photos of my favourite local companies.
The Old Island Stamp Company has 21 new designs so far this year! I picked up a few of their unmounted stamps during Christmas. Dawne (owner) cuts her rubber tight to the image! LOVE that!
The next stop was The Steam Trunk Craftworks. They carry the most shabbiest-chiciest of trims and ribbons. Their character and plastic buttons are also cute to boot!!! I took some photos of my favourites.
^ This was my loot that I picked up from The Steam Trunk. I have a plan in mind for all the sewing buttons as well as the super heroes!
Next up, is dear Sandy of Crafty Secrets. My friend, Odessa and I helped Sandy and her husband Scott zip through their cleanup process and I am happy to say that I made it home to watch the last period of the Canucks hockey game that evening, lol.
This next photo is of Inka-Gold and a sample of what you can do with it! It's a new product to me and is now in store at Cherish the Thought. Jessie always continues to amaze me with what she does with all of her product!
^ Some sample cards that Jessie has taught (or will be teaching in the store?)
Jessie showing us one method of using the Dreamweaver Stencils with sheets of metal and embossing.
And finally look all these precious NEW DIES that Local King Rubber Stamp has! So new that I think they just started shipping yesterday.
