Hina Modha

Hi my name is Hina Modha, thank you for visiting.

I am a PaperCraft Designer, Demonstrator & Craft Workshop Tutor. I have been crafting for many years and absolutely love it. I design under the name of Aichem, hence, the name of the website πŸ™‚

Leaving my IT Project Manager job, to concentrate on crafts, was a scary prospect at first, but I must say, it has been the best decision I have ever made. I am so much happier doing what I love. I don’t get much time to do a lot else now, as I am constantly on the go with some project or another, but loving it all the way πŸ˜€

Since meeting the editor of the Create & Craft Club Magazine in July 2006, I have been contributing to the mag. This is really exciting and it’s a bit different. The instructions are filmed and then available online, so members of the club can see the cards made step by step. I have also been fortunate enough to have demonstrated on the Create & Craft stand at the NEC on a few occasions.

I am often demonstrating at various craft shows up and down the country, so come see me at a show near you LOL. It’s great to meet fellow crafters. There is so much talent out there πŸ˜€

I have designed projects for Stamp Addicts, based in Bedfordshire, for their TV shows on Create & Craft and demonstrated on their stands at shows. If you want to flick through pages, you will also find my card designs in the Lets Make Cards and Lets Get Crafting Magazines on a regular basis. These are off the shelf mags available at WHSmiths and supermarkets!!

Workshops are fantastic, it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or more advanced, its just a great way to socialise and exchange ideas as well as being taught some new techniques.
I run workshops locally on a regular basis at the
Coleman’s Craft Warehouse in Rushden,
at the Kempston Stamp Addicts shop
and at Blue Haze Crafts in Chesham.
Please see the Workshop Schedule page if you are interested in joining in.

Recently I have recorded a TV show with Create & Craft channel, sky 661, and am due to record more with a live show coming soon. I feel incredibly privileged to have the opportunities I have and am still rather speechless.

PaperCraft Design, Workshops, Demonstration, ScrapBooking, I love pretty much anything to do with crafting and to take on projects that I have never tackled before. I recently knitted a wire and bead bracelet for my friend. I suppose I can add that to my list now πŸ˜‰


Apart from Craft, my other pass time and passion is Poker!

I have played poker since Jan 07 and have been fortunate enough to play on TV games that have been aired on Sky Sports 2 and Channel 5!!
The first ever live poker tournament I played was the Ladbrokes European Ladies Championships when I became the bubble girl, I was pleased with the result but wish I had got to the final table. Next time the title is MINE πŸ˜€ Since then I have been on another TV tournament – the Party Poker Women’s World Open, I hope you caught that show, I didn’t manage to win, but I am working on a pokertastic comeback πŸ˜‰

When not crafting, I can normally be found at the Northampton Gala Casino, I play some of the regular poker tournaments with a whole host of friends I have made there, come join us, it’s fun LOL

I am hoping to play in the second BetFred Women’s Poker Tour. I wrote a few articles for the 2007 tour which where published in Poker Europa. Hopefully, I will be asked to do the same again for 2008, so watch this space πŸ™‚

I know it’s a strange combination but I don’t think I could be called β€œnormal” LOL.

Find out what else is going on my Poker & Craft worlds under the relevant Category πŸ˜€
Maybe I’ll see some you on the poker or craft circuit soon. I hope so…. LOL

Happy Crafting Everyone and
Stay Lucky πŸ˜‰
