I have just returned from a whirlwind weekend in Boston, Massachusetts where I attended the grand opening of the Michaels Cambridge Store with Spellbinders!
As many of you are well aware, Michaels Craft Stores are now carrying Spellbinders products in them (here in the US and Canada) soooo... with my Spellbinders supplies packed I jetted off to Cambridge MA to do a demonstration of the Grand Calibur and some of Spellbinders die templates.
What a treat this trip was - first of all I got to meet Jo Pearson, who is not only a huge celebrity in the crafting industry but also the kindest and sweetest person too (did I also mention funny?!). She was one of a handful of Michaels Execs attending the event!
Store Manager, Steve who is really the nicest guy, leads a fun energetic team and I was especially pleased to meet Mike and Brenda who I think should both travel around the country with me promoting Spellbinders and Michaels - now that could be dangerously fun! I seriously felt like I had been into this store 100 times! Love the "Family & Friends" atmosphere I felt there. I think this goes for the whole of Boston though - SUPER cool people - AND I love the accent!
I can't wait to return to Boston, especially this time of year with those gorgeous fall colors. Thank you to Michaels and the City of Cambridge for your kind hospitality! See you soon xoxo
