CLASSES CALENDAR & EVENTS 2017

Welcome to my 2017 class schedule.  I hope you see something you’d like to know more about.

If you’re from out of the area, but find that you’ll be in the Sonora CA area (1.5 hours from Yosemite, 2.5 hours from San Francisco or San Jose, 2 hours from Sacramento) and would like to join in a class, just check out the RSVP date and send me an email and your class fee (PayPal or check cc) and it would be great to see you!  Or maybe even meet for the first time!  Classes do fill up so registration is on a first come (and paid), first served basis.  Yes, you can pre-register for any month at any time.

On the third Wednesday of every month I offer a more technical class of three cards that take more time and attention.   The focus is on a stamp set, a tool or a combination of both or a fun technique or fold.  Class size is limited to 4 to allow time and space for each person to get adequate attention.

On the third Thursday of every month I lead a Stampin’ for Adults classes/gatherings at the Mi Wuk Library and Community Center, aka Little Library in the Woods.  Class fee is $3.  We make 2 cards (envelopes included) and have lots of fun!  All supplies provided.  No registration or experience is necessary.   Just come on in!  It’s a very relaxed atmosphere.

On the last Tuesday of every month I offer a Card Buffet.  By the 10th of each month, I post 8 cards on my blog.  It’s your job to choose any combination of a total of eight cards, register and then email me with your card selections by that months deadline.  You can access each month’s cards by clicking on the large-ish green box, titled Blythe’s Buffet, under the banner of my Stamping With Blythe blog.

Out of area readers and those who cannot attend a particular class:

How-to tutorial including card measurements and instructions PLUS pre-cut card supplies for my monthly studio classes (3 layered and embellished cards + envelopes) are available for $7.00; stamp set and classroom tools are not included (but can be for their purchase price plus tax and shipping).

How-to tutorial including card measurements and instructions PLUS pre-cut card supplies for my monthly library classes are available for $2.50; stamp set and classroom tools are not included (but can be for their purchase price plus tax and shipping).

APRIL:

APRIL 6-8, 2017
Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage Live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

APRIL 8, 2017
Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage Local in San Diego, CA.  I’ll probably be attending this event, flying to San Diego this time, for a dose of Stampin’ Up! excitement and introduction of the newest annual catalog.  YOU can attend if you’re a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  Let’s talk if that’s an idea that “speaks to you”.  It spoke to me 21 years ago and I still totally love what I’m doing.  I’d love to have you join my Country Loft Stampers team.  Where’d I get the name Country Loft Stampers?  “My Country Loft” was the gift section of a hardware store that used to be in our community.   When they went out of business (sad) I was able to claim the cast away sign and it now hangs proudly over the entry door to my stampin’ studio.   Hence, Country Loft Stampers.  We are a gift!
