AFTER a challenging 18 months, Lavinia Stamps was thrilled to be able to invite crafting friends back into the shop in Ruthin for an open day.

Throughout the day, four demonstrators created stunning examples to inspire crafters at all levels, and videos posted to Lavinia Stamps’ social media pages allowed fans to interact from all over the globe.

Lavinia Stamps is an established company that produces a collection of stamps and stencils with magical and mystical themes.

The images are all hand drawn, which adds to their unique quality.

Combined with the Hallaganza Spectacular, there was the launch of the autumn stamp range.

Visitors spent hours in the retail shop watching demonstrations and collecting ideas and supplies for their own craft making.

Andrew Peers, of Lavinia Stamps, said: “All the Lavinia team and the demonstrators were overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm shown by the many visitors who made the journey to come and see us.

"We even had a visitor travel all the way from the USA!

“We would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all who attended, and huge well done to the Lavinia team for all their hard work.

"Don’t worry if you missed out on any of the wonderful video tutorials; you can catch up with them all at your leisure by following this link:”
