Hochanda One Day Special Review

Well, you did it again. You made our second One Day Special on Hochanda a rip-roaring success & the feedback we're receiving is overwhelmingly positive, so thank you very much. 

It was a phenomenally busy 24 hours, which actually began hours before the 8pm launch on Wednesday night, with Sue & Lisa B setting up the studio with all the amazing samples made by them & our team of designers............




It was great to see so many of these samples being shown during the shows & we had so many compliments about them on our Facebook page. Our designers work very hard producing projects for us & it is very important to us that they are acknowledged. Huge thanks to

Eileen Godwin, 
Jennifer Johnston,
Jean Elford,
Diane,
Linda,
Annette Warboys

Thanks also to Sue & Lisa, who demoed a lot of their cards on the shows. I'm going to try to get them to do a few blog posts of their projects for you in the next few weeks.





Many of the samples will be with us at the trade show at the NEC this weekend, so the retailers will get to see them up close. We'll also bring some with us to the retail shows we'll be attending this year. 




This is our fab clock, which we all love. Lisa B decorated it with the new Starlights paints, Alchemy waxes & Rice Papers. It''s definitely got the wow! factor.............



Of course, the purpose of the Hochanda shows was to launch the seven brand new Starlights paints & they were a big success. There are still a few sets on the Hochanda website, now back to their full price. We will let you know when we have the individual colours available to sell............




We also launched these brand new Art Stamps, designed exclusively for Imagination Crafts...............


We restocked the Cottage Garden set twice & every set sold out. There are a few of the 
Putting on the Ritz sets remaining on the Hochanda website & again, we will let you know when we have the individual stamps for sale.


We had a new to Hochanda Sparkle Medium duo. This is a really gorgeous combination of colours..........


These background stencils were so successful that they sold out before the end of the 24 hours...........


You can find all the remaining items on the Hochanda website
