Tina’s Back Tomorrow

Tina’s Back Tomorrow

Hi there.

Thanks for popping in.

Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Well on a very personal note, can I tell you nobody – NOBODY – is happier than me to have Tina Cox back on Hochanda TV tomorrow. Last year was a rough year for Tina. She lost her beloved Dad, and it knocked her for six. I’m sure everybody reading this could feel her pain, empathise. So she retreated to the back of the cave and stayed there for a time. And when the pain subsided a little, she decided that distraction and getting busy were probably a good solution. So she called me and we made a plan. She has been beavering away in the background, getting stronger and finding her way again, a day at a time.

So it is with great pleasure that I can finally share with you that tomorrow, my dear friend Tina will be launching two new books – and can I add a footnote?  THEY ARE FANTASTIC !!!!!


Remember the first two books which Tina wrote, to accompany first the straight pattern border grid No. 1,

then the diagonal pattern border grid No. 1?

Chances are you’ve already got these two super duper grids, which make gridwork so so much easier than having to count count count…

Well, the two new books deal with the same grids, but this time Tina has added picot cutting. You only have to look at the front covers to see the difference:

So if you already have the two borders, then these books are brilliant for taking you to the next level, teaching you the next more advanced stage of gridwork combined with cutting. Here are just a couple of examples of the wonderful artwork contained within these pages. Step by step instructions included of course.

On the shows tomorrow, which are live at 11am 2pm and 4pm, Tina will be using 4 new Groovi plates, which she has designed herself, to show off the grids, and make them sing for you. I have seen the artwork for the demos which she has klined up – absolutely beautiful. You have to see what Tina does! It’s crazy!!

Here are a few lovely samples created by the ever clever Clarity team. More to enjoy on the show for sure!

That’s what’s happening tomorrow then! I am going up to the studios, to support and help for the day.  But you won’t see me. Tina is taking the reins and going for it. So please join her and cheer so she can hear!

  19. Glad to hear Tina has been looking after herself and recovery is underway. Grief takes its toll on all of us, so there will be a lot of people rooting for her. Getting your head off the pillow can be hard, so creating is awesome.

  20. I am so happy that Tina is back, I’ve already ordered the books and the new plates -recorder is set for all shows so I can relax and watch at my leisure – happy happy bunny.
    Have just placed an order for a craft cabin to be built in my garden this summer so I’m an extra extra happy bunny XX 😘

  21. Brill I knew you’d get Tina back into the flow. She just needed time to get there. We have all been there for her. Beautiful plates and books as always. Love that lovely lady. See you at the workshop on thurs. Barbara you have a real gem in your team. X

    Will be the thinking of you.

  25. Met Tina last Sunday at a workshop and her enthusiasm for parching just shone through (we were doing something else!!). Didn’t know why she hadn’t been on our screens but do know what it’s like to lose a much loved parent so I’ll be watching her shows, sending her positive thoughts and have a feeling she may finally tempt me to ‘get in the groove’!!

  26. Really looking forward to seeing Tina tomorrow and will be ordering books and plates, have sent a message of encouragement to her, well done everyone at team Clarity for bringing these to us xx

  27. Hello Barb, so pleased to hear that Tina is coming back. And looking at the samples, I am sure that there are many people sitting on the edge of their chairs waiting in anticipation. Welcome back Tina, will be watching to see your magic. Take care all. Bx

  28. Hi Barbara
    Oh it’s lovely to see Tina back, Tina sweetheart we know what you’ve been through, a lot of us have been there too, don’t worry we will be cheering you on and quietly holding your hand. The books and new plates look amazing and the samples, wow oh wow. I feel sell outs galore this weekend. Have a safe journey.
    Love Diane xxx

  29. Fab weekend in store…Tina’s back…whoopee! That’s Saturday sorted, then Sunday and Monday with Barb and Paul…definitely my kind of bank holiday weekend!

  30. Lovely to hear that Tina is coming back to the TV and is feeling stronger after her bereavement. I think I’m a bit too far away for her to hear my cheering, but I’ll have a go!

  31. Lovely to have you back Tina, sorry to hear the reason you have been missing, keeping busy does help. Your programs was wonderful, have only managed to see part as it is recorded. Nice that I can watch a few times. Xxxxxx

  32. I’m new to parchment and think all the work you guys do is amazing, keeping busy Tina is the best solution, I also lost my mum and Dad within a month at Christmas and keeping busy certainly helps. Xx

  33. It will be brilliant to see Tina back on the TV again and with these super new plates and books. The samples are all fantastic. x

  34. Hi! I have been very interested with parchment designs. I live in Australia and have been trying to find the basic tools to start. I managed to win a bid and are waiting for them to come. Now just need to get some plates. Seems like you need a lot of tools and wondering if you know where to get them.
    Love the work.
