My daughter and took off work for this event and frankly we are a bit disappointed. It seems that every 20 or so Anna Griffin is on pushing her copy of the Gemini. Don’t get me wrong we like Anna and buy some of her fine products but this feels like the Anna Griffin show. Where are the rest of the usual purveyors? Why has Sara Davies been regulated to what seems like the shadows? We count on HSN to get the European sensations before they are widely available here in the states. HSN normally ddelivers , but not so far today.
I think the die cutting is getting to be too much … I also own 2 mini manual, 2 large manual and 2 large electronic cutters…. I also don’t need another one… The paper and dies are expensive and the plates are expensive to replace, as they don’t really last that long… Personally, I think it’s cheaper to buy the embellishments already made…, although I do still like to die cut…
but there are other crafts they can demonstrate… a million things on their website besides card making and scrap booking…
I set an email to AG blog concerning how the plates would hold up over time. Because she’s been demonstrating the items available for today the last couple of weeks I was wondering if her plates would warp like the Gemini. No response though. I already own 6 electronic & 2 manuel die cutting machines and don’t need another one. But I just bought the Gemini go last month’s craft day and the small plastic plates have already cracked. I have the large Gemini too and had to buy 3 sets of plates due to warping and cracks. Love the machines but tired of replacing plates. Since AG inner plates are smaller than the outer A & B plates , I was wondering if this would keep the outer plates from warping so bad? But I think it’s too soon to buy the machine with this being it’s initial offering. I’ll wait and see how all these new buyers test it out.
Sara from Crafters Companion was on Tv alot last night. They were suppose to start at 11pm but ended up going on air at about 9 pm. Plus her big push today is the new CC sewing machine…not so much paper crafts.
I agree with you 100%. I like Anna Griffin, don’t get me wrong, but I was hoping for more of a variety. I was also disappointed in this Craft “Event”.
