We had a little mix up with the opening times this morning at the Make It show. We were so delighted that the show opened at 10am rather then 9 as it did last week in Paris, that we left a few jobs to finish off on the stand tihs morning.
The cards from the "Love Chocolate" challenge had to be strung across the front of the stand, all the signs had to be placed on the ribbon cabinets, plenty of time until they announced that the show was open!!! We (Tony!) had forgotten that disabled customers are allowed into the show from 9.30!!! OH NO - coats on the floor, step ladders still out, night sheets all scattered across the stand, quick, quick put everything away.
It was only after lunch that I noticed that there were still a few french signs lurking on the stands!! Never mind - we normally have two stands, one for the French shows and one for the English shows and never do they mix. But sadly some of our exhibition cabinets got pushed over during the burglary and so badly damaged that they were unusable, so hence we now have a Franglais stand!!
Your "Love Chocolate" cards were greatly admired today, with lots of wonderful comments. What everyone enjoys most is the fact you can make so many different styles with the same ribbon.
If you come to the show, do not forget to pop along and say "Hi!"
