    Default Anyone remeber these ladies

    When QVC sold crafts these two American Ladies, Mother and daughter demonstrated fairy dies, stamps and powders and used to blow "Fairy Dust" towards the camera.
    Does anyone else remember them. I think the Mother became seriously ill, and might have now died.
    Was talking about them with a friend who couldn't remember their names, or company either
    Thanks

    Yes, I was going to say that - I remember her mainly for jewellery though?

    Never saw them do anything but jewellery
    The company was run by 2 sisters
    The company ceased trading in 2014 but they are trading again now

    Only duo from USA I can remember on QVC doing craft
    Was Carol Smith and Donna Dewberry
    Which has reminded me I must get their kits down from the loft see if the stuff is still usable
    Have told myself I must use at least 5 items from my old stash
    before the end of the year

    I seem to remember fashion items, with burn out material, oversize floaty stuff, but that might have been the daughters line. The fairy dust must have driven the presenters nuts. I think the mother did dabble a bit in craft at one point

    Must have been before my time I think. Apart from DB I don't remember anybody else doing paper crafting as such. I remember Donna Dewberry, mainly because she drove me nuts, had to turn the sound off. As for Carol, well I loved her Bucilla felt kits. Kate bought me my first Advent calendar for my birthday One year, which is in May. I had it finished and hanging on the door well in time for C********. Since then I have bought three others, they are hung on doors/walls each year.

    Each one has its own hand made bag to keep the felt ornaments in. Come to think of it, one isn't hand made, it being a Avon velvet stocking. However, it is a really attractive stocking, that looks as though it should have been hand made. This year I have designed, with the help of a booklet bought many years ago, a cross stitched Advent calendar. There are 100 teeny designs in the booklet, and I have used 63 of them. 25 on the calendar panel, 25 ornaments, plus a spare as I obviously miscounted, and 12 on the wee bag that the ornaments will be stored in. Hoping to finish the bag tomorrow, it just needs blanket stitching around the edge.

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.
