Let them eat cake


Well Friday saw the 3rd Ilkeston Dabblers of 2011 and there was a magnificent turnout 14 yes 14!!  There was lots of crafting and everyone there had a great night as you can see from the pictures. 

Arena is a fantastic place to craft as the facilities are great and it’s always warm in the winter – and very near to Tesco’s if you fancy doing your shop afterward.!!!

Anne showed everyone how to make tissue boxes (see below) which are brilliant and I have since made another one at home!!!

These are the ‘let them eat cake girls’.  Sue in the middle did a fantastic job of providing cakes for the evening. So many thanks to Sue from everyone.

If you are able to provide cakes for the next meeting please let me know?




Pam also did some lovely images using Penny Black stamps and coloured with Copics

Dabblers will be meeting on Friday 18th March at Arena Ilkeston at 6.30pm. The cost of the evening will be £3.50 and this includes refreshments and biscuits.

The theme for the evening for both card makers and scrapbookers will be Easter/Spring so please bring along anything with Easter/Spring in mind.  Easter is just around the corner Good Friday is April 22nd and surely spring will be with us soon.

Anne will be doing a demonstration using a Hougie board, so bring yours along if you have one to share your tips may be learn a few and above all have fun!!
for the evening you will need to bring your basic crafting kit for the and all the craft items you need for the projects you want to make the night.
Don't forget, if you don't want to make these or if you don't want to doing any thing with the spring theme, you can always bring along your own projects to work on or you can just come along for a natter, coffee/biscuits and catch up with everyone you haven't seen for the last few months.

If you have any crafting items that you wish to sell, to swap or just to pass on, please bring them with you.

Could you both let me know if you are happy to supply the cakes/biscuits for this session please.

If there is anyone that hasn't been before you will be made to feel most welcome. If you need directions or any other information at all, just send me an email.

Can you let me know if you will be coming along so that I can get a rough idea of numbers.

I am really looking forward to seeing everyone as its been so long.
