It was a little worrying that the exhibition was moving from G-Mex to Event City at Trafford Park, as it had been established at G-Mex for many years. However what a good move it was. Event City was a very spacious venue, with loads of seating room, and NO parking charges for exhibitors or public. I met a lot of new people who were visiting an exhibition for the first time, as well as many existing customers. Thanks to you all for supporting this new venue.
One of my best friends at the exhibitions, Alison, did her first show with Zentangle. Alison has been at the exhibitions before and most recently has been seen helping me at Exeter, Dublin & Harrogate. She is now introducing Zentangle to the UK at the exhibitions and can be seen at Exeter, Alexandra Palace, NEC, Glasgow & Harrogate. As she has worked with Friendly Plastic when she has been helping me she has used Friendly Plastic as a base for Zentangle, as well as producing many other ideas. Here are the images of a display she produced for my stand, it could quite easily be framed as a piece of wall-art in its own right, or used for jewellery ideas. If anybody needs any details of Alison and where to contact her I can pass on her details (she has a big range of books and the special pens).
