Spondon Dabblers does it have a future?

Hi Ladies

Spondon Dabblers does it have a future?

August Spondon Dabblers was cancelled due to not enough people confirming their attendance to make it viable but when Anne cancelled the booking it because weren’t able to give 1 months’ notice of cancellation we had to pay for the room hire – which Anne did & she is now out of pocket. 
As you know we are non-profit making don’t have any funds to cover these sort of costs.

 Because of this Anne has cancelled all the bookings for the rest of the year.  I have offered Anne 50% of the cost for last Friday’s hire. 

I am willing to organise these Friday nights but would require another person who would help when I’m on holiday or can’t make it due to work commitments.

 but before I do this I need to know:

·         from you all whether you want to meet in the 3rd Friday of the month?

·         just continue with meeting  once a month on the 1st Friday at St Martin’s at Allenton?

·         Is anyone willing to help me with the Spondon Dabblers if there is enough interest for it to continue?


Please let me know your thought on this asap

Little Boxes

Good evening ladies,
The last Dabblers was great fun.
I have been adapting the original design of the little box, I added a drawer!
It didn't go quite as well as I would have liked, but it's only a first attempt.

Hopefully I will be at the Spondon Dabblers this friday and will have perfected the drawer :)

August Derby Dabblers Photos

These are a few photographs from our last Derby Dabblers get together at St. Martin's Church Hall.  I am not the best photographer and I often forget that I have a camera in my bag but, better late that never with the photos.

We made a stunning box and hopefully, we can get a few more photos on here of how all the boxes turned out.

‘SPONDON DABBLERS’ Friday August 17th

Hello Ladies

I know that we have only just had Dabblers but I thought I’d e mail everyone whilst crafting is still in your thoughts!!!!!

Well it’s that time of the Month again its’  ‘SPONDON DABBLERS’   Friday  August 17th

Friday 17th AUGUST 6.30 - 9.30 at Spondon Village Hall

The theme for the evening, which you don’t have to follow if you don’t want to is going to be ‘Christmas in August
.   This could be your kick start to start making those cards ready for Christmas.  I’ve recently started to get e-mails with this year’s new Xmas product ranges – like the look of some Lily of the Valley stamps.   

You don’t have to follow the theme, just bring along your bits and pieces to sit and create or, just bring yourself along and have a cuppa and a natter.

The cost is £3.00 per person.  This does include the hire of the room  plus tea & coffee.


If anyone would like to bring some cakes/biscuits please let me know.  

If you can you help out with cakes/biscuits in future months just drop me an e mail?  If you could tell me when you can commit to, I can add it to the blog.


Yes we have a blog and everyone can contribute to this.  It would be fantastic if you could spend just a few minutes to update the blog with what you have been up to over the past few weeks, or tell us about your latest project, your latest purchase?  Anything at all.  If you don’t already have permission to write on the blog just let me know and I will sort it out.

If you don’t know how to blog, again, I am happy to lend a hand.  It would be great if we could get this to a busy place that we could all come and visit.  Not sure what a blog is, please click on the link below my name and it will take you straight there.


Can you make it on 17th August 2012 6.30 - 9.30.   Please let me know so that we can work out how many we are catering for. 

looking forward to hearing from you

Happy crafting
