Ginger and John Welcome You to Ginger's Cameo, Manufacturing Home Office of Cameo Paints

September 2007


First of all - I'm trying something different on getting your whole newsletter to you through the mail. There is a staple in the fold of the newsletter. You will need to take it out to read and/or copy the newsletter. I think this will work. I'm sorry that some of you didn't get all of your newsletters last month. My Mom faxed me and said, "This is all I got". It was written on the address page. That was the first one that I knew about. Others have come in over the month. Some folks just asked me to send another one with their order. If any of you need the letter from last month, I can put it in your next order - if you tell me that you didn't get it.

I don't even know how to thank all of you that sent cards and e-mails and called concerning our loss. Some were sent to Mysti and some were sent here. It is wonderful how people share when something happens.

I also want to thank everyone for being patient with us here at the Company. I know orders have gone out a little late and emails have not been answered in a timely manner. We spend most days at Mysti's and pretty much run the Company late night and early morning. As things get more settled at Mysti's we will be here more during the day.

I'm including the new "How to" page on "Rag Painting" in this newsletter. We'll see if this answers your questions on this technique. It's a quick and easy way to do lots of things. In fact, you could use it on the special this month if you wanted to try it out.


Monthly Special

Monthly special for September 2007:

UQ08 Unicorn Quilt Block

This will be the Special for September 2007.

The new T4693 transfer + a Mini Flag (P322). This transfer is the other half of the set. I put out the first one (T4694) last September. You can use the set to put one on each of two Mini Flags, or the front and back of a shirt. (That's what I did.) You could use the two transfers together on a Wall Hanging (P324-$7.50). (You will want to trim the two transfers so they make a complete design in that case.)

Monthly Quilt Clubs

On the transfers for the monthly quilt blocks there is a big picture and a little picture. Obviously the big picture is for the actual quilt block. The smaller pictures can be used for matching little t-shirts or sweat shirts. They can be used for making matching pillows, curtains, dust ruffles, sheets, body pillow covers or maybe even matching towels and wash cloths for a connecting bath room.

Remind your customers that they don't have to make quilts with these transfers. They can use them on shirts and other things. They would make a cute outfit (according to which ones you used) for a little onesy for a baby or a matching sweat suit for a child or adult. How about making a western shirt for someone in your life using the Southwest quilt block transfers? How about putting a south west transfer on your horse blanket?

If any of you travel - these transfers are a good size to go on your luggage. For some luggage, you might have to put the transfer on the quilt block - then put Fabric Glue on the back - let it dry - then cut it out to put on your suitcase. (You might need to cut in multiple pieces to get the look that you want.) After you get it cut out - use the Fabric Glue to put it on the luggage. If you want it to last a long time - after that Fabric Glue is totally dry - put another coat of the Fabric Glue over the top of the whole design. This will, hopefully, keep it safer and make it last longer. When you do something like this it will make it much easier to spot your luggage on the luggage carousel at the airport. It might, also, get you some new customers. There's nothing like advertising to get people to notice what you sell.

Remember this hint: if you need to put on multiple coats of paint, you can always iron your design dry in between coats so you can finish up a design in one class.

Also, when you use your Dual Point Pens, the paint that you use them on must be dry or you will clog up your nib and it won’t work anymore. If you are doing faces, for instance, paint the entire face and put any shading on that you need to do – then iron the piece dry – then go back and detail with your C388 – Brown Dual Point Pen.

October Seminar 2007

Since I want the folks who cannot come to the October Seminar to be able to order the new things that are coming out then – I will be getting the November/December newsletter out the week following the Seminar.

I have two (2) of the three (3) new accessories ‘in house’ that will be kicked off at the October Seminar. Accessories are things that help you to paint – like tips, Fiber Brushes, Mini Totes, all those “C’ numbers. Halleen will be teaching a class with some of these at the Seminar.

I actually have the new Linen ‘in house’ for the October Seminar. My cousin, Jean, will be teaching that class, first thing in the morning on October 13th, right after the continental breakfast.


Get the October Seminar 2007 on your Calenders NOW!

October 13, 2007

Where: At the Ginger's Cameo facility in Manchester, MI

The schedule of classes for the October Seminar is:

  • I will have a Continental Breakfast starting at 8:00 AM.
  • 9:00 AM -Class using new linen and new holiday transfers made for the new linens.
  • Door prize drawings will start at 9:00 AM and there will be one every hour after that.
  • 11:00 AM -Quick and fun class on "spatter backgrounds".
  • 1:00 PM -Two (2) new transfers by Halleen and how to paint them.

You will be using one of the new Accessories for this class.

I suggest a darker shirt (but one that you can see the transfer lines) for class #3, a stained shirt for class #2 and, of course, you're going to be using the new linens for class #1.

Be sure to bring a full set of paints, scissors, a dish to pass, ideas to share and things to show.

You can stay as long as you would like and we can nibble on leftovers for the evening.

I'm putting the registration form for the October Seminar in this newsletter. The sooner you get it in - the better I am able to plan. If you get your paid registration in before October 1st, you get a $5.00 discount - so it will only cost you $30.00. If you register on line - you will get a $5.00 credit at the meeting to use for all the things that you are going to want to buy.

This will give us three major up-coming holidays to work with at the Workshop.

All the new things coming out for the October Seminar will be in the November/December newsletter. Those of you who attend the Seminar will be the first to see and get the new things.

I have one of the new things in House already. Another new thing is on order and should be here within the next couple of weeks.

We will try to have a new type of linen to paint on.

I, also, have some other things in the works for the Fall Seminar in October.

In looking at the many things that will be happening at the Seminar and things that will be kicked off at the Seminar, I think that you should all make every attempt to be here. Oh, yes, we will be meeting in the new Facility for the first time, also!!!!

It's going to be great! I hope to see you there. You should be able to register ($35.00) on the Web site. We will be doing a lot of new things and this will cover a lot of the supplies that you will need - but not all. You will probably have to buy a few added things, too.

Have you wanted a patriotic table cloth for all the patriotic holidays?


Patriotic Tablecloth



Well, here is Lori's tablecloth. She used four (4) different main transfers and then pulled the whole thing together with the stars that Halleen taught. Lori says she can use it pretty much all summer.

Final Words

I’ve been trying to hold down the price on shipping – but now I’m starting to lose money on it and prices are going up at the Post Office starting May 14th. (Prices at other shipping places have already gone up.) The increases they are talking about, on top of what I was already losing, means that starting May 1st, 2007 my shipping prices are going to go up.

Remember that shipping is figured on your retail total before your discount.

If you think I should give you a lower shipping amount on your order because it is a small order, you can call and we might be able to adjust it some. No promises though. I’m not in the business of making money on shipping, but sometimes the small orders are what off-set the big orders.

Well, I guess that's all for this month. Keep that those suggestions coming. I need every one of them. See you at a meeting.
