NEC and a NEW Groovi Christmas Bauble & Sentiment Collection

Hi there,

Thanks for popping in! What a day!  Greetings from the NEC day 3.

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. The live TV stream with Hochanda and Hayley was so much fun. The building was buzzing. The vibe in the building was just like the good old days. Honestly. I went straight in the office here and booked a huge stand for next March AND November. Got to be done.

So on to tomorrow. Paul is doing another Live TV show, and will be showcasing a really lovely little set of Groovi Baby Plates.

Enjoy the show, and enjoy the artwork here! Excellent word plates for Christmas!

Love & Hugs,

    It was nice to be able to put faces to the designers you name when showing samples. Thanks for introducing them to us.
    Try to get a good rest tonight as being the last day tomorrow and a Sunday it is likely to be manic with people trying to pick up last minute bargains.
    Sweet dreams.

  10. I couldn’t watch today, as I am in Tewkesbury celebrating a friend’s (of 45 years) 70th birthday. We have had a wonderful, happy day and I will catch up with your show when I return home tomorrow. I am so pleased that you have enjoyed the NEC show and happy that you have booked for next year. I know that it is tremendously hard work, so thank you again, to you and all the team. One more day, then packing and off to Germany! Sleep tight. Annette X

  15. Had a fab day at NEC today, took my mum and introduced her to our Barbara who gave her a hug and told her that I was a lovely lady, way to any mum’s heart, tell her how great her kid is. Mum loved it of course, thanks Barbara, it made her day. Went back later to get my Calendar signed, thanks again, had lovely chat about exciting plans, can’t wait until January. Talk about cheering up my least favourite month. Hope rest of show goes well, rest that voice up and take it easy in Germany. Off tomorrow to do my lino cut Christmas cards, can’t wait. Fab weekend all round. Once again, thanks, thanks and more thanks, the only reason I still go to NEC show is to see the fab person, our Barbara and her great team, you never disappoint. Sleep and rest well. Karen xxx

  16. Hello Barb, wow and wow again, what beautiful plates, and the samples, well it goes without saying that they are incredibly lovely and creative gorgeousness. Have to catch up with the show yet. It sounds like everyone is enjoying the visits too. Take care all. Bx

  17. Went to NEC yesterday (Saturday). Thank you for the warm welcome Barbara, always good to see your lovely face. Great demo on the stand and also on live tele – I even went to the Clarity stand straight after and bought a ‘big floppy thing’ – hilarity all round. Great to see my friend Hazel on the stand and look forward to a catch up coffee with her soon. Just love the Clarity family.

  18. At the NEC yesterday (Saturday), loved browsing through and buying lots of goodies on the Clarity stand and watching the midday demo with Barbara; what a laugh! Such a pleasure to watch the demos, as I am new to paper crafting (sewing has been my passion) thoroughly enjoying learning new skills. Barbara you and your team are an inspiration, love all your designs (have started my xmas list already!)

  19. Had a lovely day and spent up at the NEC mainly on the clarity stall 😊. So pleased you will be there next year. The November show is the start of our Christmas countdown. You and your team are always lovely and extremely helpful and your demos so inspiring.
