My wonderful news …. how did I keep it quiet for so long???


Oh my gosh, you know I said I was distracted earlier today …. well at last I can tell you why…… I got a very special shirt in the post today!!!  A couple of months ago I had a rather exciting email inviting me to go on a very special training event held by Crafter’s Companion. I couldn’t believe that I had been asked to be trained as an official, fully accredited demonstrator …… but nothing is quite as simple as that. We all know how proud Sara is of her company and quite rightly so. She has worked hard to gain the respect from her competitors, staff and customers and is known for bringing fab products and delivering high standards in both quality and customer service. So at the end of May, several of us crafty folks were locked away for 3 days and ate, drank, breathed and did everything Crafter’s Companion!!!!!



We were taken through every single product inside and out by the wonderful Leann, Sara and Claire (plus super fab CC Team) and had to learn everything about everything! We knew we would each have to do a dummy demonstration in front of Sara and Leann but we did not know on which product it would be– talk about nerve wracking!! We all wanted to impress them so much and pass ….. Sunday was a sleepless night!


Lots of note taking and practicing!


I had the most wonderful time and although it was totally shattering and we were worked until after midnight one night (so tired) I made some wonderful new friends. I can honestly say that when Sara says her company is a big family she really means it. We were all made so welcome and the is a real feel of warmth and belonging that I really cannot describe. I sound like a gushy woman but honestly, it has to be experienced to really appreciate how special Crafter’s Companion is.
