We are all so thrill  to have Wendy back to the store. She is an amazing teacher, teaching you techniques that will amaze you.  Wendy taught at my store years ago before she had her stamp line and signature line with Ranger, I knew then that this lady was going places.  Sign ups start Monday September 10th @ 10am.
