Do you remember back on this post I told you I had something very exciting to tell you about..Well it all got postponed due to the rioting in London...but..yesterday it happened!! We, that is my craft group, us 'Valentines' were invited up to the QVC studios in London for a craft event, we got to take a backstage tour, we saw all the studios, we watched the shows being filmed live, we met a few presenters, we were fed & watered & best of all we got to play with all the brand new jewellery making ranges that QVC are about to launch, we got to keep all our jewellery we made & our tools... & we got goody bags!!!!
Our day started with a train ride up to Victoria, we then went for lunch at a very nice Italian restaurant, once we were all stuffed (& stinking of garlic!!) we made our way over to Harrods for a little smooch around (well...you can't go to London without popping in there can you?!?)
Here we are outside Harrods..
Here's us in the QVC training room making our jewellery..
& here are some of the beautiful samples they had on display..
One of the new ranges is called Steampunk...lots of mixed metals & texture - texture which you create using the Sizzix machine & some lovely little embossing dies..
We got to meet the lovely Carolyn Schulz (in the zebra jacket)..
Here we all are with our goody bags..which are absolutely jam packed with all sorts of goodies, including loads of wonderful jewellery making kits for us to play with..
We really did have a fantastic day..Thank you QVC!!!!
