ACG instructors at Spotlight Malaysia, Ampang Point

Do join our ACG craft & sewing instructors at the grand opening of Spotlight Malaysia in Ampang Point, KL THIS MORNING - 12 July 2014. They will be there in shifts from 10am to 10pm today & tomorrow.

They will be doing demos on various forms of crafts & sewing projects using materials available from Spotlight. Spotlight has been a popular store for our crafters  when they travel to Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, etc. So now, you can find similar range of craft materials here in its first store in Malaysia. Another 3 more stores will be launched in the near future. They also have home furnishing and a small range of art materials, eg. acrylic paints & brushes.

Then you can sign-up for further classes according to their schedule. The preparations leading up to this event has been a great example of ACG's solidarity and cooperation among members. If you have been in Facebook the last few weeks, you would have seen >300 posts on our secret group (for only ACG paid-up membership) where they discussed arrangements to meet up and attend meetings with Spotlight's management, to discuss terms & conditions of the future classes so that there are some standard guidelines and finally to support each other as they rush to meet deadline for the opening.

This is the essence of our guild. People always ask - what BENEFIT do i get if i join ACG, hoping for tangible benefits like discounts, etc. But what we have is beyond that, something MUCH BETTER, something intangible like :

* Great CAMARADERIE & strong MUTUAL SUPPORT among members (as per the Spotlight, Parkamaya& National Textile Museum events)
* Access to OPPORTUNITIES and CONTACTS (through our FB & our various blogs, we've got invitations to organise events, attend events, contact with overseas crafters & artists, etc)
* Chance to DREAM!  When we get together, in the flesh or online..we usually brain-storm, think-up ideas to create fun events/challenges (eg. White T-Shirt Challenge, Crafting for Charity). 

So, today and many days to come, we WELCOME new members to join us and contribute your ideas, your dreams, your hopes. 

Join us today & tomoro, meet the members and try out the various crafts! 

And dont forget to sign-up for your VIP CARD to get great discounts

The annual craft workshop and CFC (Crafting For Charity) session was a success! Not only we produced a lot of small nicely made handmade items to give away for charity fundraising, a lot of participants got to acquire new craft making techniques and everyone has something special to share, whether it's their life experience, crafting ideas or simply helping out other participants with the projects they are working on.
