Photos from April's Derby Dabblers

Sorry it has taken so long to put these photos on the blog.

We had a lovely time at the April Derby Dabblers get together and I cant wait until the next one. Unfortunately, I forgot to get my camera out of my bag whilst everyone was there so I didnt capture everyone's creations of the evening but, here are some of the cards, scrapbook pages and moulded goodies that I did take a photo of.

What a busy bunch of ladies we were.

Crafty Evening at Arena Ilkeston April 15th


The Derby Dabblers will be meeting again on Friday 15th April, 6.30pm. at  Arena Ilkeston opposite to Tesco's store.  We had a wonderful turn out last time and a brilliant
night was had by all.  I am sure that next weeks get together will be just as good.

anyone who can bring cakes let me know as your donations are truly appreciated by those who attend.

Please bring your basic crafting kit, this should include a cutting mat or something to lean your work on, scissors, ruler, pencil and sticky stuff. If
you have a cutter and want to bring that along great but if you don't, there are plenty of other people there that will have a cutter of some sort. If
you are a scrapbooker I am sure that you will bring your card, photos and embellishments. Card makers will bring stamps, ink pads and colouring
mediums.  If you are still not sure what to take along, send me an email and I will see if I can help.

Each month we have a theme for the evening. You don't have to follow this theme, you can take your own project to start or finish.  The theme this month is anything FLORAL

The cost of the evening is £3.50 per person, this covers the room hire, tea, coffee & biscuits.

We are at Arena 1 Rutland Street Ilkeston DE7 8DG

making flowers - so f you have any flower punches and or a scallop circle punch bring them along.  If you have a crimper bring that along too.


If you have any crafting items that you would like to sell or pass on please bring them with you.  . It would help if you could make sure that there is a price on your items. 

:  if you there are any exhibitions in the near future please let me know and I will put it on the blog.

Dabblers have a blog .  If you click on the link  it will take you straight there.  If you have any photographs or information
you would like to pass on, this is the ideal place to do it.  If you don't already have permission to add to the blog, let Tracy know and she will
send you an email with the details on.  We know lots of people go and have a look at the blog but we don't get many comments.

Dabblers now have a Facebook group.  If you haven't already signed up to Facebook, give it a go.  It can be a bit confusing to start
with but its really good fun.  You can join the dabblers group and chat to other members (if they are on line at the same time) and you
can read what is happening and when.
Also on Facebook there is a new group called Derby Crafting Marketplace.  This is very new but I am hoping it will become popular.  Not
many people know about this group yet.  Its a place where you can buy and sell crafting items.  All you have to do it take a photograph
of what you want to sell and post it in the group page.  If you want to purchase something, you just get in touch with the person that
is selling.  Its worth a look every now and then

As usual, if you can let me know if you can come along this Friday so I can let Anne know how many are coming.  Anne will be looking after you all on Friday night as Pam & I are off to Sir Stamp a lot for a crafty weekend along a few other Dabblers and some that are not.
Hope to see you all in May though
best wishes
