Workshop Last Saturday....And Some Sad Workshop News

The first of our two summer workshops took place last Saturday....and what a brilliant day it was! Thank you to all the ladies who helped make it a very special day. For a full report and lots of photos, please go and take a look at our workshop blog: CLICK HERE TO VIEW. 

The workshop was tinged with some sadness, as we bid farewell to so many lovely regular workshop customers - as this was the last but one of our Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops...ever! If you are a reader of KT Miniatures Newsletter or our Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops Newsletter, this news will not come as a surprise to you. But if this is the first that you've heard about this, all is explained below...

Sad News...End Of Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops

It is with great sadness to announce that after our July workshop is over, we will be closing the tiny doors on Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops and they will be no more. 

My workshop colleague Robin Britton has made the monumental decision to retire and withdraw from the professional miniature scene over the next few months, so the tiny doors will be closing on her Coombe Crafts business too. Her decision has been influenced by a recent milestone birthday and understandably has a lot of real life "stuff" she would like to do while she can.  And then for me there is the continuing nail biting uncertainty as Mr KT patiently awaits a transplant, so it just seems apt to end our joint workshop venture at this time.

But don't worry though, I most definitely have no plans to retire from KT Miniatures for a very long time yet (I have quite a few more years until pension age), so it may be that in the not too distant future if circumstances deem it possible once more, I  could continue the workshops in some shape or form under the banner of KT Miniatures instead. We shall have to see...

Hello Celia,
I am glad you had a good class, but I am sorry your wonderful classes must come to an end. It will be a great loss to many!
Big hug

Many thanks Pilar6373 and Giac. We do feel sad but recognise it is the right time to stop the workshops. But the good news is that KT Miniatures is continuing for a long while yet (ha ha ....I hope)! Celia X
