The Creation Station Bury North | Meet Sarah - Franchisee of the Month!

Sarah joined our sparkly team of inspirers in 2017, and since she's been inspiring the children and adults of Bury North in classes, parties, events, and more! 

 We spoke to Sarah about running her Creation Station Franchise and here's what she had to say; 

What's your favourite thing about running Creation Station? 
My favourite thing about The Creation Station is the fact it has given me a new and exciting opportunity in life! After being a teacher for 20+ years I was ready for a new challenge and CS came along at the right time! I love being my own boss, making my own decisions and trying hard to make my business grow. No week is ever the same and that’s so exciting! 

What's your most memorable moment so far? 
I guess if I can choose 2, which I hope I can, then recently winning Raring 2 Go award for Bury’s Best Pre-School Class was fantastic and totally unexpected. The comments I received from my customers, when they knew I’d won, were totally overwhelming and touching. Also being filmed for ‘My First Art Class’ for CBeebies was pretty special too! Although I really don’t enjoy watching myself back!

What's coming up soon in Bury? 
I have a Creative Crafters on July 9th which I am really excited about - Creative Crafters is such a great opportunity for adults to take some time out for themselves. 

What does the future of Creation Station Bury North look like? 
The future for CS Bury North is very important to us as a family. My partner and I have worked hard to see it grow in a way that works for us. We have invested a huge amount of time and energy into the business and I feel so proud for what we have achieved. My aim has always been to give families the opportunity to make creative memories together...I hope I can continue to do so. That will make me so happy. 

Do you have a creative tip for our readers? 
I always tell myself enjoy being creative and remember your own creations are always the best...made with love and sparkle!

Excellent service! Great choices!

In the middle of lockdown, we ordered a number of craft packs from Alexis and were very pleased with the service. She helped us to choose some fantastic kits that our 4 year old loved. They were all great quality and personally delivered very quickly. I have already and would continue to highly recommend the creation station. I also run a homeschooling group on Facebook and can confirm that the members have all been really pleased with the offering and service available.

I absolutely loved Nats class!

I absolutely loved Nats class!! She made myself and my daughter feel so welcome on zoom!!! The class had a really cosy, casual feel, but I also learnt a new skill!!! Nat took time to make sure each of us felt confident! She valued our art and gave us lots of praise! I'm not arty, but I came away thinking I can do this!! This was my first class with Nat, and I will definitely be joining one of her classes again!!

Fabulous Alexis

Had a fab online mandala class with Alexis last night from the comfort of my own garden in North Staffs. Alexis made the whole thing really easy to follow, went the extra mile with our resources and I was super pleased with the result. She's also provided craft packs for my kids during lockdown which have been amazing.

Online Mandala Class

I really enjoyed the online Mandala class with Nat at Stafford South. She was really great at explaining the technique and made sure everyone felt at ease. There was a good mix of conversation and concentration! Nat was very professional, friendly and encouraging. I will definitely be doing more of her online classes in the future.

Create club

Amazing online Create Club. We have searched for interesting things to do online during lockdown and when the create club was recommended to us by others we signed up. We purchased 5 online sessions and so far we have completed 3. My daughter has enjoyed each week and so far her favourite was 'The Arctic'. She enjoys seeing some of her classmates and friends via zoom. Sara delivers everything you need for each week which makes everything very simple and enjoyable!! Looking forward to the next session!
