Welcome to our first newsletter for 2019. What a year it’s going to be as we celebrate our 20th year. Never in my wildest dreams when Little Bits first began did I imagine we would still be here.It is because of you and your amazing support that we can still be here, as strong and as healthy as ever.Thank you! I cannot picture myself doing anything else.
I often reflect on the people I’ve been lucky enough to meet. Fabulous talented people who have taught me so much and have given me so much kindness and frienship over the years. I also remember treasured and wonderful customers who have passed on but left a “Little Bit” of themselves in my heart.
Businesses who have been and gone. Remember Stampit, Fiddlesticks, Inky Pinky, Amazing Creations, Thinking Stamps, Stamp World, Lucy’s Stamps, all great Aussie icons who made an incredible impression on the art stamp industry in Australia. Without them, we wouldn’t be here today.
Because it is our 20th year this year I would like to invite you to take part in our Birthday collaborative Canvas. What we need is for you to decorate a 6x6cm tile in any way that you like. The only limit is that your art work must not extend beyond the tile. Any colour, any theme, any style, what I would like is a "little bit" of you. All tiles must be in by 1st September and anyone is welcome to join in. Tiles will be available at the shop but If you are interstate or rural, work on a 6x6cm piece of card stock, pop it in the mail and we can glue your work onto our tile just so we have all the same thickness across the canvas. Make sure you name your piece and as we mount them up, we will form a key so we know who did what. I encourage you to join in, the more the merrier. Can't wait to see what you can come up with.
This year also when you fill and redeem a loyalty card, you enter a monthly draw for a free class drawn at make and take or a major prize draw at Christmas in July or VIP night in December.Obviously the more cards you cash in, the more chances you have to win. Look out for more offers and bonus buys as the year progresses!
You will hear more about the festivities planned as we go along but this will all culminate in an evening on the 4th October. Keep it free I’d love for as many as possible to be here!
The girls and I are very excited about the mix of classes on offer this term. I think there is something for everyone but as always, we are open for suggestions.If we can help with anything, please just ask.
