I would like to share with you a few comments I received via email after the event:
I want to say what an amazing Open House this was for me. I was blown away by the amount of work you put into doing this for all of us and feel like I should thank you! So THANK YOU, Susan!!
I felt the day was perfect - no improvement needed! Make & Takes were great and easy to do. You were very well organized and the day flowed perfectly!
I so enjoyed your Open House and meeting you. Thank you for your gracious hospitality. I have never done stamping before, so I was very overwhelmed in trying to chose a nice entry point for card making materials. As I learned, there is A LOT to learn about techniques and materials. You are a wonderful demonstrator, teacher and hostess. The sign of a great teacher is when the student comes away feeling success. I loved your demonstrations and making your sample cards. I had such a great time with your delightful group of stamping girls! Thanks for having me.
My favorite part of the day was the Open House itself. The food is always scrumptious. Your decorating always presents a party flair and introduces the new products and new colors to great advantage. I like to peruse the past items that are for sale and the displays of the new products and cards you have already prepared. One particular item that always pleases me is the color handout sheets of each color family and the In Color families. I found the Make & Takes interesting with easy to follow instructions. As much as I enjoyed all these things, they do not compare to the classes and unique techniques that you teach us.
As far as what I am looking for in a Demonstrator, that's easy; just someone who is excited about their business and is ready to help her customers understand the product and the best way to use it. You definitely showed me that yesterday. Looking forward to learning new ways to enjoy a hobby I love.
Here are just a few images from the day.
