2016 has been an exciting, memorable & an incredible year for Itsy Bitsy & we are grateful for that!  We continued our crafting journey with many firsts & proud moments along the way!
Our 2nd store in Chennai opened in Velachery. Our 10th store in Bangalore opened in Yelahanka New Town. We re-located our stores in Mumbai & Pune. We currently have 18 brick & mortar stores with presence in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Pune, Goa & Hubli & there are lot more in the pipeline!
We also re-launched our website last year with added features for easy navigation!
We launched an amazing number of new & exciting products like Stencils, Colour Splash Spray, Chipboard Shapes, 12x12 Paper Packs, Shaker Elements, Thin Cut dies, Clear Stamps, Crochet Laces, & Embellishments in our own brand, “Little Birdie”. These have been very well received & we thank each & every one of you for the overwhelming response!
We promise to bring a whole lot more to you as always with the best quality products at pocket friendly prices that Itsy Bitsy is known for! J
Itsy Bitsy also made its entry into the social media with a bang. The Facebook group has 11K+ members & growing. We have established an overwhelming connect with a large number of crafters & we cherish the interaction. We also launched “Crafter in the Spotlight” feature to introduce & feature talented crafters week after week & seeing so much talent and creations has been both an enriching & humbling experience!
We also re-launched our blog & had our first Design Team in July 2016.
We thank them for their creative projects & detailed tutorials each month. The projects the crafters showcased were of a wide variety & very inspiring. We sincerely thank our blog co-ordinator the very talented Tanvi (I really enjoyed working with her & she will be missed), Lekha Jain, Remya & Gopi for all their creative contributions & wish them well in their crafting careers. I would also like to thank Sharada for her contribution not just to the blog but also to our Facebook group as the group co-ordinator. She too has made a commendable contribution & the good news is she continues to stay with us for this term as well! She is like a permanent UN member! J
