Thank you so much for your messages on Facebook, Twitter and by Email. I am please to report that I am feeling much better and slowly getting "back into the swing of things" as they say. However I'm afraid I will not be back on Create & Craft until Monday 7th May. The reason for this is.....
I'm thrilled to announce that Dawn Bibby Designs and Create and Craft are going International!
I am going to be on television channel HSE24 in Germany on Tuesday evening launching the Flower Patch Collection - I shall be on at 8pm till 11pm (German time). I'm very excited to be doing this although slightly anxious about the language barrier - time I brushed up on my German! Ha ha!
It will be a flashback to my 20's when I was an au-pair in Switzerland. I spoke german then so hopefully some of it will come flooding back. I do believe you can watch online if you would like to tune in and share the experience? Here's the link to their website.... HSE24

The DB Goody Bag is still the top seller online with £15 of products for just £5 - so please be sure to get yours while stocks last!
Lots of bargains in our Spring Sale Section including discounts on Hot Diggety Dog, Forever Friends and Daisy and Dandelion.
For visitors to the store we are still running 20% off selected lines and there are now additional sale tables with even more bargains as we are still Spring Cleaning our Prep and Store rooms. Unfortunately as some of these items have been used, it makes it impossible to sell them "sight unseen" via Mail Order. But we will be adding to the Website more bargains throughout the course of the sale, so do please keep checking back.
In the mean time we are still offering a free Goody Bag for all Internet and Telephone orders over £20 and it is free P&P for all orders over £15.
Do please pop in and say hello if your near the shop. We are open 7 days a week, the hours are on the front of our Website.
I am always receiving praise from customers on how friendly and helpful my staff are, so, please feel free to pop along for a cup of tea and a browse.
We have a lovely "Hubby Hide-Away" with tea and coffee, Sky TV and newspapers to keep your men folk occupied while you look around the shop.
Also please remember if you don't see what you are looking for online, it might be in stock but we haven't had time to put it on line yet. Please call the shop on 01254 356501 during opening hours. We are also happy to take you order over the phone if you prefer to use that method.
Well have a great week.
