Announcement from Claire
Hi all. This is a really difficult message to write. After a huge amount of thought and heartache, I have decided to step back from Thirsty Brush and will no longer be designing or demonstrating for the brand.
I want to personally thank each and every one of you for your support over the last 3 years. It’s been an absolute blast and you have all been wonderful.
I have met so many amazing friends, it really has been a dream come true. I hope you continue to enjoy using the designs I have put together for you in your crafting. Crafting is so special in so many ways and brings so much joy to us all.
Thirsty Brush will continue under the SBM umbrella and I wish Toni and her entire team all the success in the world for the future.
They have supported me tirelessly in my journey and know the brand will continue to be a success. I will still be doing Craftopia for Create & Craft on Sunday so I’ll see you then if you have a ticket . My huge passion for craft and design will always be there so I’m sure this isn’t the last you’ll see of me Thank you and love to you all.
