Good Morning Crafters!
We are incredibly excited to tell you that for the third year running, Keep on Crafting has been shortlisted for the International Craft Awards 2017. This award is based solely on customer opinion and we are one of 5 independent shops in the South East of England that have reached this stage. We now need your votes to help us improve on Silver from the first two years. You can vote online from September 13th onwards. I will be sure to remind you!
One of my favourite brands has just arrived at Keep on Crafting. Craft Consortium have a beautiful selection of papers, embellishments and stamps. My particular favourite in this range is the Tell the Bees Collection.
Workshops and Demo Days
Only a few more days and we hit September, and if you're ready to start those festive makes or need a little Christmassy inspiration then we have a few workshops and demo days coming up which may be just the ticket.
