Teresa Collins' Visit

A huge THANK YOU to Teresa Collins for visiting our beautiful state to host four workshops at both our Bonney Lake and Monroe Ben Franklin Crafts & Frame Shop stores. 

Teresa is such a delight and we love her products and collections, that we were ecstatic about her arrival!

Here are the ladies from the Vintage Finds White Binder workshop.

Here, Cheri Piles, a Teresa Collins Design Team Co-Coordinator, is helping attendees in creating the beautiful Vintage Finds White Binder project.

Teresa prepared all the kits ahead of time, so everyone got to work at their own pace, but also, follow along as Teresa walked through the steps.

Both Teresa and Cheri walked around the room speaking with everyone, making sure to answer any questions and assist anyone who were having difficulties.

Here is the group from the Big Christmas Countdown workshop.

Can you believe Christmas is only 44 days away?! Least everyone in this workshop is prepared to document the countdown to Christmas with the gorgeous Big Christmas Countdown project.

So many textures, techniques, was such a fun project!

We would like to thank EastPointe Church for generously letting us use one of their classrooms to host the workshops. It enabled everyone to have ample crafting space to work on their projects.

We held a contest for those that registered early to select one lucky participant from each workshop for a chance to win a dinner date with Teresa Collins. 

And the lucky winners were...Dodie from the Vintage Finds White Binder Workshop and Taresa from the Big Christmas Countdown workshop.

They had such a great time at Midtown Grill with Teresa and her team, with Mary Ann, Joy and Stephanie.

Thank you to everyone that attended! We cannot wait to host Teresa again, so be sure to stay tuned to all of our events and news here.
