    Derby Dabblers will be taking place at St Martins Church Hall on Friday 3rd September at 6.30p.m. If anyone can arrive at 6.30 it would be
    appreciated if you could lend a hand with putting the tables out.

    Sandra has offered to demo an item to everyone and she will be emailing you seperately to let you know what you have to bring with you.
    The theme for the evening is nautical. So anything to do with boats, ships or really, something that floats.....
    The cakerers for September are Jayne and Anne

    Can you please let Sandra know if you will be going along. At the last dabblers there were at least 10 people who said that they would
    be there, the more the merrier.

    Its the papermax show at Moorways. Obviously stampin up wont be there this year as the show is a month earlier than normal. I dont
    know if it has been advertised anywhere either.

    1 place has become available for a crafting weekend away at SirStampalot. If you would like to more details can you please e-mail me
    and I will get back to you as soon as I can

    10% DISCOUNT
    Crafty Ways at Spondon has offered Derby Dabblers a discount of 10%, on the presentation of your dabblers card. Not got a card, let me know
    and I will organise one for you. Sheila has some lovely stuff in her shop, its like an alladins cave.

    I hope you all have a lovely time at the September Dabblers and I look forward to seeing the photos and catching up with everyone at
    our October get together.....if not before.

    Well it is Saturday again

    Hi Dabblers

    not sure what you are all up to this weekend but hope you have a good one despite the weather. As it is trying to rain again this morning!!!

    Thought I would share with you one of my favourite cards. I haven't mastered yet how to get the picture to go at the end of my twitterings but I'm sure I'll get there in the end.

    Don't forget it is Dabbling at Arena Friday 20th August and if you want more details contact Jacqui Calladine

    best wishes to all

    Updating the blog

    It is now my responsibility to keep the blog up to date so here we go. We had another well attended evening at St Martins tonight. Pauline showed us how to make a box card which was superb & pictures of it will appear on the blog soon. The next Dabblers in Derby will be the September which Sandra will be organising & letting everyone know the theme for the night, in Tracey's absence.

    It was great catching up with people tonight that I'd not seen for a while as due to family commitments and holidays I've not been to a Dabblers for ages.

    Tracey is having a sale

    • 30 stamps sets
    • 100's of 12 x 12's and every colour
    • A4 card stock
    • 12x12 papers
    • 100's of SU brads
    • buttons and eyelets.
    • Not forgetting all SU ribbon by the meter
    • punches
    • rollers etc. etc..

    On top of that I have lots of non SU 12 x 12 at £1.00 for 15 sheets, others at 50p a sheet and non SU stamps as well.

    Dabblers are invited round to Tracey's on Saturday August 7th after 12 to look at her SALE items.

    Pictures from tonight will appear in the next few days
