Dont the first Fridays of the month come round quickly. Its hard to believe that its nearly October.

We are meeting up again on 7th October at St. Martin's Church Hall, Flint St, Derby. The theme for the evening will be halloween so that means bats, witches, brooms and everything else associated with it for both card makers and scrapbookers. As usual, you dont have to follow the theme, just bring your current projects along to finish or maybe start something that you have been holding back on for a while.

There will be a demonstration on how to make a bag in a box. The demonstration will start at 7.15p.m. To make the bag in a box (something I have wanted to have a go at for ages), you will need the following items:

Cardstock for the base 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
A scorer (scorepal or hugie) or a ruler and an embossing tool
Bone Folder (if you dont have one I am sure you can borrow one on the night)
Strong sticky tape - preferably the red one but I dont think that wet glue will be easy to use on this project
patterned paper 5 1/2" x 11"
card that matches patterned paper 11" x 1"
A border punch (I will bring mine if you dont have one)
Bits to decorate your bag
Ribbon to tie it up with
Tab punch if you have one and some card to make tabs, preferably the same as your 11"x1" (I shall bring my punch with me).

The price, as usual, is £3.00 per person and £2.00 for teenages. Dont forget your mugs, badges and anything you have made recently to show everyone.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please get in touch.

Everyone welcome and hopefully, some ladies that I met at the papermax show last Sunday will be joining us.

Speaking of the papermax show, here are a few photos for you

Looking forward to seeing you there

Spondon Roadworks

Ladies, if you are coming to Spondon on Friday I just wanted to make you aware that there are overnight roadworks in the village that start at 7pm and may present a small problem, I have been assured we will be able to get out when we are done, we may have to go the long way round though and getting in won't be a problem. I hope this hasn't put you off! See you then x

Spondon Dabblers

Date and Times
Friday 16th  September 2011 6.30 - 9.30 we shall be meeting up again for our Spondon Dabblers craft night.   

Whilst most thing are rising we are pleased to announce that the cost of the evening has been reduced from £3.50 to £3.00 per person such a bargain for a night of crafting and lots of chatter!!!.

Theme for the night
The theme for this month is  Children/cards for Children.
As usual, you don't have to follow the theme, you can bring along your own project to start or finish.  Don't forget, if you just want an evening without crafting, that is fine too as there are so many people to sit and chat with that I am sure you will still have an interesting night.

Show and Tell
Please bring along any cards or scrapbook pages or anything else that you may have done recently as everyone loves to look at what has been created but, be warned, you may need to tell everyone how you made it.

For Sale or For Swap
If you have any crafting items that you wish to sell or swap for something else, you are most welcome to bring them along to see if anyone on the night may way to purchase/swap with you.


We have nothing planned for this month - but if there is a technique you like demonstrated please let either Anne or I know and we will try to incorporate it in one of the evenings.  If there is something you'd like to demo or show other crafter's to make lets us know.

Badges, drinks and mugs

There may be one or two new people joining us again so it would help if we can all try to remember to wear a badge with our name
on and don't forget, if you want to bring your own mug for your drinks you can. Tea, coffee, squash and biscuits are included in the £3.00
If you have any queries about the night please let me know

It would really be appreciated if you can let  Anne or I know if you will be coming along (Anne's e-mail address is: to this get together so that we know how many we are catering for.



Looking forward to hearing from you
