Gatherings & Private Workshops

How many times over the last few weeks have you said to a friend "We should get together sometime"? As you know, unless you schedule time with friends, it doesn't happen.


Wouldn't it be fun to host a crafty night with your friends? I would love to help you by planning a fun party where where you and your friends will learn about Close To My Hearts quality products and make a fun project. In addition, you may earn free and discounted products. What could be better?

Gathering versus Private Workshop

For both a Gathering and a Private Workshop you invite your friends to join you to make a fun project. At the event, you and your guests will have a chance to try out Close To My Heart's innovated products like our clear acrylic stamps.


A Gathering is a free workshop in which I will provide all materials needed to complete a card, layout or other paper project. Your guests will have a chance to order products and you may qualify for free and discounted items.

However, if you have a larger project in mind, we can upgrade to a Private Workshop in which you or your guests pre-order supplies. You will receive hostess rewards based on the total sales including these supplies and orders your guests make on the night of the party. 

Either way, you can accrue extra rewards by collecting outside orders and directing your friends and family to my website. I will provide a unique shopping link that you can forward to those who can't make it to your party.


Virtual Gatherings and Workshops

A virtual event can be as simple as you passing around a catalog with your friends. But today's technology expands the possibilities. Your party could happen completely on Facebook, a platform that most of your friends are probably already on. It's a great way to connect and let your friends see all the beautiful products Close To My Heart has to offer. 


To have a more interactive gathering, we can use a hosting program like Zoom. Your friends will really feel like they have been together and caught up. If we schedule a virtual party a few weeks in advance, I can mail each of your attendees a card kit to assemble while we are together. These virtual events can be a lot of fun! (The free and discounted creative products are a bonus.)


I am currently only scheduling virtual events through summer due to the coronavirus pandemic. Virtual events are a fun way to "get together" while keeping your social distances! There are a couple different formats you can choose from! Email me to get started.


The fall is a great time to schedule a party because nearly everyone loves making Christmas cards. Let get your party on the calendar before things get busy! Email me now to get your choice of dates in September through November.
