Thank You!

I would like to thank each and every vendor and shopper that came out this past Saturday and helped celebrate our bi-annual Used Stamp Sale. We had a beautiful day and I hope you went home with some wonderful treasures. Our sale has grown each year. With that said, please do not wait too late if you plan to participate in selling in the next one.

We ask that you check the class schedule and if there are any classes you are planning to take, please let us know as soon as you can. We need to have enough time to prepare the kits.

Please keep all those in the path of the hurricane in your prayers.

Again, thank you and Happy Stamping!!!

October 8 Demo Postponed

Sorry to report that we will NOT be having the demonstration this Saturday, October 8th with Melinda using the PanPastels. Her mother has fallen and has a subdural hematoma.

Be patient and we will not forget to have the demo on our calendar soon as we can.  So keep working on those cute Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas cards. Time is sure creeping up !!!

Annual Tag Swap and Classes

Registration ends Saturday, October 1.......Call NOW - Stamper's Alley at 704-664-5068, sign up in person, or email (stampersalley@gmail.com) for our FUN  CHRISTMAS TAG SWAP.

Participants will be placed into groups, no more than 15 participants in each. So you should plan to make 16 tags.  We will begin accepting tag submissions as soon as you have them ready. HOWEVER, no submissions will be accepted after Saturday, October 29th.

Tags should be no smaller than 2"x 2" and no larger than 3" x 4".  Feel free to use stamps from any company you like.

When you are creating your tags make sure that they are of the same quality that you would like to receive.  One of your tags should have your name and the company names of any stamps, dies etc. that you used.This is so we may post on our sample board for customers to see.  When you bring your tags in, include a large envelope (at least 6" x 9") or a quart sized Ziploc bag clearly marked with your name.  Please do not just put a slip of paper inside your bag with your name, it must be clearly written on the outside of the bag with a permanent marker or have a white label affixed to the bag with your name on it.

The completed tag swap will be available for pick up November 1st thru November 26th and if you are unable to pick them up we will be glad to mail them to you if you include a self-addressed, stamped envelope (be sure to attach enough postage).
