Have you ever wondered what goes into holding a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator event? This past weekend I helped Diemonds team member, Jennifer Hamlin, host the North Carolina Demonstrators (NC Demos) Quarterly event and I thought it would be fun to share some of the experience with you.
We have a strong demonstrator community group in North Carolina that is great to be part of (if you live in NC, you should join us). This quarterly event is typically a face to face event where we gather from all over the state of North Carolina for a fun filled day of fellowship and crafting. As you may have guessed, due to COVID-19, we had to change this most recent event to be the first virtual event. While we truly had our mishaps, we learned so much and all had a wonderful day gathering via a Zoom meeting.
Jennifer designed and wrote up PDF tutorials for 5 great projects for everyone to make at the event. We got together and ordered all the products we needed as well as the packaging supplies.
A couple of weeks prior to the event we got together and cut the packets for all the attendees. This took a full day or cutting, sorting and bagging. Each project was in a separate bag that was labeled with the project name.
The following week we sorted the swaps that had been mailed in and packed up all the kits, swaps and a little gift we sent out to all the attendees.
The day of the event, all the tutorials were posted in a private Facebook group while we gathered throughout the day via a Zoom meeting to create the projects. It was interesting to craft live while others were doing it along with me.
We fought some technical difficulties, but in the end were able to record videos for each of the projects to post in the Facebook group for anyone that could not attend while we were live on the call so they would not miss out on the projects. When we do this again, I would definitely pre-record the videos for the projects to avoid some of the issues.
It was wonderful to see everyone’s smiling faces and chat a bit. Although we could not technically be in the same venue, we were still able to experience a fun time together (virtually). Excited to see everyone at the next event!
