NEW OWNERS OF PERGAMANO

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in.

BIG DAY HERE AT CLARITY.

Remember that huge news I have been teasing you with?
Well, today it became official.

We are delighted and excited to announce that Claritystamp
(that’s us)
are now the new owners of
PERGAMANO.
Told you it was a game changer, didn’t I?
I have been bursting to tell you for weeks, 
but paperwork and transfers had to be sorted,
so you understand now why I couldn’t spill.

It’s a biggy for a little company like Clarity, I can tell you!
Massive actually.

You know when something happens which you never even considered, because it was way way outside of your radar?
Well, there you go. Miracles do happen. 

So I shall see you on Sunday on TV.
2-4pm and 5-6pm
No big fanfare, no big Ta-dah!
Just the same as always, 
but now you and I know what’s what. 


Love & Hugs 
from a very excited 
Barb

    1. Hi bloggy friends,
      Thank you for your comments yesterday. Up early today as didn't have a good night - the brace is really heavy to sleep in so can't get comfy. No doubt it will get better as I get used to it. Looking forward to the sale now - I definitely need a treat!! Have a good day everyone, love and hugs to you all Alison xxx

    2. Sorry to hear you are not sleeping well just now. I hope that you will find a way to find a way to feel more rested.
      I think some sale shopping is just the thing that will help you just now to feel better.

    3. Hi Alison - sorry to hear you are not feeling so good. What's this about having to even sleep with a brace on? I need to catch up on that obviously! You take care, the Clarity sale couldn't have come at a better time for you, mobility is not needed - just a credit card! Love and hugs, Gilly xxx

So now you'll be able to sell thevtools on Hochanda, and demonstrate them all, helping usvall to move on in our own Groovi journeys. And hopefully no more grief from those trad parchers either. Wow, bet you'revwalking on air today. Soak it all up and enjoy Barbara and Dave, you've worked ever so hard, you deserve this. Love you xx

    1. Oh bother, I was thinking there wouldn't be much in the sale I would want/need.... Ah well, shrouds don't have pockets, and nae signs of support, so my zebedee springs are coming out and I'm jumping in deep!!! Thank you Barbara for such a good sale, and for always giving us a month to work out what we want, with nothing at risk of selling out in the meantime xx

      Delete
    2. Brenda, I love that phrase about there being no pockets in shrouds. I have not heard that for ages, but it is so true. I am very busy spending my kids' inheritances. At my age, what is the point of saving every penny like my grandmother did? Spend it and get some fun out of life with my Clarity goodies. So take that deep breath and dive into the deep end. xxx Maggie

    3. Hi Brenda, agree with you totally.

      Thanks Lynn xx

      Who would have thought all these years ago Barbara, you'd be standing at this point today. You revolutionise the stamping industry with developing clear stamps, fight hard along that pathway for years. Get a break on telly which puts your business on the map and it all snowballed from there. You add a path alongside with the gelli plate, paint and stencils, making your business grow even more. Then suddenly you make a fork in your pathway and take a step along the parchment route with your revolutionary Groovi system. And after such a short time, you are now standing at the top of that path as was, ready to dive off in all, any of the directions you care to, setting pastures new in the parchment world. None of that happened by chance. No, it's your intelligence, thought, knowing where there is a gap, an improvement needed, and working out how to make it happen with your immense effort and work ethics. Putting up with all the backlashes and nastiness thrown your way, fighting on regardless. It doesn't matter to me that the Queen somehow overlooked you in the New Year's honours list, you're Dame Barbara to me xx An inspiration to us all in our own life journeys no matter what they are. Thank you Barbara, not just for our crafty journeys, learning and developing, but also for being you, for giving so much of you to all of us, and for tirelessly trying to teach, support, and improve each and every one of our lives with both craft, and our ways of thinking in general. Love you xx

If I could climb onto my roof, I'd be shouting it from the rooftops! Huge smile still on my face and full of happy feelings for Barbara and Dave. Still don't think it's properly sunk in yet, this is so huge eh. And couldn't have happened to a better person. But we know, it's happened because Barbara made it happen eh. xx

    Well done - this is immense!!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Congratulations Barbara, and all at Clarity, this is monumental, or even mental, haha! Years ago, when me and my bestie had a little craft shop, we aspired to one day sell Clarity stamps and Pergamano. We felt that we would have made it then. Alas, we never did stock those products (we did sell other stamps and Parchment Craft magazine though), and we closed the shop in 2010.
    Funny how things turn out, isn't it?
    Congratulations again, I'm so pleased for you, now you're a big fish in a big pond!! x

  68. Many many congratulations, what an amazing coup. I have loads of pergamano tools and I used to buy the magazine but always got frustrated with tracing and the old fashioned, fussy patterns. Groovi has brought parchment into the 21st century with a bang. What a combination. Onwards and upwards xx

    ReplyDelete
  69. Well, I have to say what a surprise. I did chortle, especially when you had been informed that you couldn't sell their products on Hochanda due to a rival company (not mentioning any names)!! I'm so pleased for you all at clarity,and may the brand become stronger because of you and your hard work. Xxx

  70. Hi Barbara & team, congratulations on you acquisition of the Pergame no Brand .As they say everything under one roof, I only have a couple of these tools but they are brilliant to use.So will be ordering a few more now as we can get them from yourselves.

    rs and during this time I have accumulated a great amount of Pergamano products and like all crafters Ineed them all! ! have missed Pergamano since Martha Ospinas time at the helm.I am thankful to Pergamano for reintroducing the art parchment craft.With the colaberation of Clarity Groovi and Pergamano I look forward to seeing what you have in mind.for the future. I was a member of Tina Cox"s design team when she had regular shows on Create and Craft which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Once again congratulations Barbara. Jules Griffith xxx

  95. Wow! That is fantastic news!

You did have us guessing there didn't you. Still believe that you deserve to get all the awards as well. Still time for that and theres always next years honours list. I agree with all Brenda's comments above. You've done yourselves and your company proud, we are so proud of you too. What a fantastic sale again and I have a voucher to spend too, still so excited about it, thank you so much for picking my card in the Calendar Challenge.xxx

  114. Fantastic. My first ever paper craft item I bought was a pergamono tool, did not have a clue what to do with it , but 15 years on I have learnt many things, including the groovi system. How wonderful to have it all under one roof now. Congratulations

    ReplyDelete
  115. I have just recently discovered your Groovi plates and placed a very large order from your wonderful sale.
    Very exciting to find out that you are now the owner of Pergamano too! I purchased a couple of Pergamano tools years ago and never did learn how to use them...it was all very daunting to me. I believe with you, Barbara, at the helm I will finally be able to learn how to utilize what I have...as I of course purchase more.
    I am very happy for you for your new venture. You are a world class teacher. You have simplified the concept of line art and parchment paper use for a total novice like myself.
    So glad I stumbled across you and your work just bouncing around on youTube one night. You have broadened my vision of ideas for my cards.
    Thank you so very much...and once again Congratulations!
