Just Tracys Crafts
Karen Hoskin and Tracy Watkiss,
(So its Not Just Tracys really, but she has the most amazing I am the celebrity demonstrator Hissy fits, if she does not get her own way!! Only Joking, she's alright really)
keen, addicted, knowlegable paper crafters who wanted to Play more.
A Competent and lovely papercrafter, loves parchment craft, anything glitzy, blingy, and is a dynamo around the computer with the ever popular CD Roms. Also likes Seed Beading and Jewellery making and has firm control on the budget, so be really nice to her, and we can all have the goodies we want in the shop. Always on hand with good practical advice and hints and tips.
Crafting all her life, in her youth was taught to knit by both Grandmas and also enjoyed crochet, more recently (7 years ago) she crossed over to papercrafting and forged out quite a successful career as a demonstrator, going all around the country demonstrating in stores and at Craft shows for some of the leading craft wholesalers. She has also had work published in various craft magazine (Making cards, Creative Cardmaking) and has also been a guest on Create and Craft Television.
Karen and Tracy have been friends for several years and always gossiped over crafting, coffee and cakes about the dream of opening a craft shop. Then one day, they really talked, and the "Dream" became a reality.
After Lots and we mean LOTS! of scouring the local vacinity to find the perfect shop. The dissapointments of the ones that got away, the jubilation at being able to afford one a bit bigger than THAT! Till finally the Triumph of finding "THE ONE". The one that ticked most of their wish list boxes. Just Tracys was born.
So come *PLAY with us, have fun with old friends, make new friends and be creative!
N.B. *PLAY: If our husbands, other independant retailers, Craft wholesalers etc are reading this then the word Play means an extremely large amount of Very, VERY hard work, that leaves us absolutely, without question so tired that we rarely, if at all, if ever have time for Housework or problem solving.
