  4. Signed up for the beginner class…should be fun! (would have signed up for both, but the vendor I’m working with probably would like me to help with Friday setup, lol) Thanks for returning to W. Springfield! 🙂

  5. I’m so excited! I’ve just signed up for both classes. It’s a good thing that the Stamp show doesn’t open until the next day as I would probably be way to tempted to spend money I shouldn’t. Maybe next year I can make a two day event out of it.

    Will there be a reminder email about the need for a white and a black pen? I’d hate to forget them as there probably won’t be any chance to purchase them there, and it is two months away.

    • I don’t have access to Heirlooms email list so I can’t guarantee sending a reminder, pack the pens in your purse so you don’t forget:) I will have a few just in case tho:)

  6. Lindsay, for both classes are there any extra supplies we can bring that may come in useful??? Thanks!!

    • That is up to you, if you have your own supplies (as mentioned above) you can bring them so you won’t have to share. You should bring a black permanent pen and a white gel pen though:)
