Newsletter No. 14

A Happy New Year to all those that I haven’t seen or spoken to over the last couple of weeks. I hope that you had a nice Christmas. The snow has been and gone and I trust, is not about to return. Unfortunately the last Ilkeston meeting had to be cancelled due to the weather forecast, which was a shame.
FRIDAY 5 FEBRUARY
Derby Dabblers get together at St. Martin’s Church Hall in Allenton. 6.00 – 10.00. The theme for the evening will be a colour one Red or Pink along with Black or Brown. Stamping,
Scrapbooking, cardmaking anything at all with these colours.
FEBRUARY CAKERERS
Are there a couple of volunteers for the catering for 2010 for the Derby Dabblers. There will be at least 10 get togethers . Would you please let me know if you can help out with either home made or shop purchased treats for the night and I shall compile a list of names, to hand out in February.
FRIDAY 19 FEBRUARY
Ilkeston Arena meeting. Jacquie will be looking after this one and will send out an e-mail separately with regards to the theme for the night. If you would like to be added to Jacquies e-mail list, please let me know.
THINKING ABOUT COMING ALONG FOR THE FIRST TIME
For those ladies, and gents, that are thinking about coming along to one of our evenings, thought I would let you know that Derby Dabblers is a non-profit making social meet up, for crafters. That includes total beginners, very experienced, those in-between, cardmakers, scrapbookers and anyone who enjoys creating with card/paper and all the other wonderful things that are available. At every event the cost of the room hire and drink is split between the number of people attending, so there is never a kitty. The maximum cost is £3.50 but the reality is normally £2.50 - £3.00. It all depends on how many people attend on the night.
Cakes and biscuits are provided by two ladies at each meeting. This will rotate until we have all brought something in.
At the meetings you will always need a name badge (if you remember) a cup/mug, basic kit (cutting mat, scissors, pencil, ruler, sticky stuff etc.) plus whatever else we are doing on the night. We meet the first Friday of each month at St. Martin’s Church Hall, Flint Street, Allenton from 6.00-10.00p.m. You don’t have to be there by 6.00p.m. and you don’t have to stay until 10.00p.m. and the third Friday of the month and the Arena in Ilkeston from 6.30 – 9.30. You are welcome for the whole evening or just part of it.

Can I ask you to let me, or anyone else at Derby Dabblers know that you are coming along so that we can make sure that there are enough table and chairs set out

Look forward to seeing you there
