Congratulations to our very own Alicia Barry. Alicia has just won FIRST prize in Spellbinders largest ever competition called Craft to Win.

This world wide competition took in over 400 entrants and was narrowed down to only 12 finalists in late December. Out of the Final 12 three were then choosen by a celebrity panel at CHA to take out first, second and third prizes. The first being a $5000 craft booty from Spellbinders and their preferred partners.
