Sayner Spring Stampede

An extravaganza of creative fun

The 2st annual Sayner Spring Stampede is expected to draw hundreds of rubber stampers to participate in what promises to be the best Stampede in the event’s history.

Scheduled for May 4-5, 2018, this year’s Stampede will provide a fun and energizing atmosphere that will include an expansive Rubber Stamp Convention where artists can exchange trading cards, register for a chance to win cash prizes, and participate in many make & take projects at exhibitors’ booths. Classes will provide instruction allowing participants to create art reflecting inspiring sentiments with beautiful imagery.

“The Sayner-Star Lake Lionesses founded the Stampede to celebrate creativity, fellowship and fun, and are delighted each year to see that spirit continue,” says Mitzi Pockat, Lioness Chairperson.

Jill Lemke, Stampede Class Coordinator, adds, “It’s wonderful to see the results when this group of creative people share their ideas and experience with one another.”

Join the fun May 4-5, 2018

Festivities kick off at noon on Friday, May 4, 2018, with a list of classes including unique approaches to creating cards for men, specialty folded floral cards, brilliant and beautiful foiled cards, and even ideas to beautify your Bible, journal or day planner.
