As you know, we’re a huge advocate for independent stores, small manufacturers andÂ of course, the direct sales organizations that feed this industry so well. In addition to keeping you up-to-date on the industry latest from CHA, we also work hard to keep tabs on Stampin Up, Close to my Heart, Memory Works, Amuse Studio, Ippity, Creative Memories and others!
I admit …. some of those organizations don’t make it easy to keep up for those of us who are “outsiders.” Thankfully, we have some very organized & proactive readers who occasionally do allÂ of the work for us.
This is one of those times! One of our readers, Terry, is a CTMH rep in theÂ “Mid-South” areaÂ who wrote a fabulousÂ newsletter recapping recent changes and news at CTMH for her customers. It was great! If you want to know the latest & greatest at CTMH, you can check out Terry’s CTMH email newsletter here.
I have never met Terry in real life and this is not a paid advertisement or even an in-kind swap. I just thought she wrote an excellent newsletter and wanted to share. (I read a zillion newsletters, blogs, messageboards etc. I’m probably a lurker on yours! LOL.) If you are a direct sales consultant or demonstrator, I would hold her newsletter up as an example of great customer communication!
Speaking of which, if you are a consultant / demo, I hope you are taking advantage of our paper crafting event listings. They are free to browse, and it’s completely free to list your event as well.(Submit here.)Â No user id or password required. They are sorted by state / region and by date!
Our goal is to share more info about fun paper crafting events that are happening every day throughout the US! The more we all get together in person to scrapbook, make cards, learn stamping, etc, the more we’ll be inspired to craftÂ and to share our hobby with others. That can only be a GOOD thing for the industry!
Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox now 🙂 And many thanks to Terry for giving me permission to share her newsletter!!
