A Place at the Table

This October 25 I will be hosting A Place at the Table, A Mixed Media Dinner Party at Daisy Chain Scrapbooks Nambour.  This is a concept that sees individuals win A Place at the Table simply by participating in Daisy Chain Events and/or making purchases at the store... in general rewarding loyal customers with an in-store event. 9+1 Daisy Chainers will sit at the demonstration table and have a front row view of all the action on the day... they will also take home a booty bag and no doubt memories of good times!

This event is open to all, there will be room for plenty of spectators, who will enter the event by way of a gold coin donation.  For news on all the action email me so that I can place you on the e-News Mailing List to receive updates between now and the event on the 25th.

This weekend marks a frenzy on opportunities to win one of the remaining places at the table, with a ticket awarded for every class attended and every $10 sale for the following two date ranges:

Time Period 1
September Friday 19 to Tuesday 30 (10 Shop Days)
1 Place and 1 Reserve Drawn 
 
Time Period 2
Wednesday October 1 to Saturday 11 (10 Shop Days)
1 Place and 1 Reserve Drawn


A stack of fun is planned for the day, including a $5 Make and Take Canvas, great for those who are new to mixed media or would just like a day of friendship and fun!

Ask in store, or via me directly...
