Stamp Antonio Arts welcomes Barbara Jackson!

Barbara Jackson, a nationally known artist and demonstrator of Golden Products, held an all day class and seminar at Stamp Antonio Arts on Sunday, July 20, 2008. She had been for a visit and to demo some of the new Golden Product line, earlier in the summer. We had such a wonderful turn out, and several of our customers asked if she could come back and give additional classes.

Barbara worked us into her busy schedule, and returned to give a hands on, (or hands in) seminar on the Acrylic Gels line. She will be returning in August for a class in Digital design using Golden Products and your computer, so check our calendar on the website, www.stampantonio.com for more information concerning the class and when it will be held.
Sign up in advance is crucial, so that preparations can be made to get the equiptment and supplies here that we need for each student. So sign up as soon as possible, so you don't miss out on this informative and creative class.

We are also taking reservations for the classes in September featuring Fred Mullett. It has been several years since Fred has been on the road teaching classes down here in Texas. His classes have been filling at his every stop down IH35, and our classes are just about filled. We still have a few openings, so be sure to reserve your spot today for these one of a kind classes. You will be glad you did!

July Artist-in-Residence

Hello everyone. Here are a few photos from our Artist in Residence get-together at Stamp Antonio Arts. This is our second such occasion, and we had such a wonderful turn-out, and everyone seemed to have a good time. If you are not familiar with our Artist in Residence program, it is where some of our wonderfully talented instructors come together to work on their own projects, while you, the customer walks through the store shopping, asking questions, and sometimes signing up for future classes. You get a sneak peek at what our instructors work on in their spare time, and maybe get new ideas on how you can use products you already have at home in a new project. Plus, it is a great time to meet other artists in our community, and share ideas and thoughts with them.

We also had some of our future Artists in Residence showing off their skills on papercraft projects that they enjoy doing. Artists of all ages loved to participate, and with refreshments and live entertainment, a good time was had by all.

Look on our class calendar for the next Artist in Residence coming soon. You will be glad you did!

CONGRATULATIONS to Helen Richards, our Grand Prize winner in the AMuse-a-palooza 2008 festivities at Stamp Antonio Arts. Helen (l) is shown here with co-owner, Carol Condos, Monday when claiming her prize; an AMuse tote bag filled with lots of AMuse product!

We want to thank all of our wonderful customers and fans of AMuse stamps, for helping us celebrate AMuse-a-palooza 2008, and thank Geeta Suggs, one of the wonderfully talented AMuse certified instructors, for taking the time to come visit and teach classes at our store.

If you missed coming by the store this past week to celebrate AMuse-A-Palooza with us, you can still come by and see the wonderful cards that were made during the week. We still have some of the new stamps that were released, and have already re-ordered the ones we sold out of. So you can still start your Christmas stamping today, by just coming by Stamp Antonio Arts for all your stamping and cardmaking supplies.

Just as a reminder, we will be having our Artists-in-Residence demos this Saturday, July 19, 2008. Between the hours of 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm our class instructors will be situated at tables around the store, working on projects where you can stop and ask questions, sign up for upcoming classes, or just stand and watch for awhile. We will also serve refreshments, have live music to enjoy while shopping, and a Lemonade Stand manned by two of our up and coming young artists-in-residence. So come on by, and join us in celebrating Summer vacation, and pick up some new ideas and products to try during the H O T, Hot, days of Summer!
