Fab time at the crop!
I had a fabulous time on Saturday at our crop - the main hall was buzzing with activity all day and we had a blast in the classroom! I have to say that this is down to the great team we have working behind the scenes to bring everything together. Mum and Dad were quite literally sweating buckets getting the tables and chairs set out at the beginning of the day and the same again at the end. Dave and Jack flexed their muscles loading and unloading the van and the amazing Pauline kept everything together in the shop. I couldn't have done it without you all, so thank you very much (love you all!!!!).
We have opened booking for our next crop in June and have almost sold out once again! There are a few places left so you might want to think about booking yourself a place quite quickly before they all go. Classes will start to go on sale over the next few weeks and I'll give the usual 2-3 days notice so you can arrange to be near a computer.
So why the breast cnacer ribbon on this post? Well, one of the classes at the crop used the Melissa Frances 'Thankful' line, sales of which will raise money for breast cancer charities. We announced in the class that we would be donating all the profit from this class to raise money for breast cancer charities and the group in class thought it would be a good idea to make a small donation in class to boost our donation. At my club we have had 2 members diagnosed with breast cancer so it is an issue close to our hearts. I don't know if you had a chance to see the Channel 4 programme 'Embarrassing Bodies' but last night it was all about breasts. They have a fab video about breast exam on the Channel 4 website (the site is down at the mo due to weight of traffic!) so please take a few minutes to take a look at it and make yourself aware of your boobs and what is normal for you.
