Enjoying cake on our 1st Birthday last year
We have 28 members (split into 2 groups), which meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month (the 2nd Wednesday is fully subscribed to). The cost is £10.00 per month, which includes kit, written instructions, use of tools etc., room hire, tea/coffee/biscuits (sometimes cake).
I run the club by subscription (2 months paid in advance), which secures the room hire regardless of how many people attend. It also secures your place and kit each month. You have the option to 'try before you commit' by attending one session to see if it suits. I have done this with several people who then become fully fledged members. I have run scrapbook clubs for over 7 years now and have found that this subscription method works very well for everyone concerned.
Here are some of the kits we have had during 2013:
April 2013: Glitz Design patterned papers, Vanilla Cream and Blackbird cardstock. The technique was a Glitz Tiny Roller Doodle (Anchors).
July 2013: Basic Grey Mint Julep patterned papers, Blossom, Espresso and Cream Puff cardstock. The technique was using a 6x6 Template.
September 2013: MME Kate & Co. patterned papers, White, Navy and Lime Crush cardstock. The technique was stamping on acetate with a Stazon Midi Ink Pad and a sheet of acetate.
I have some more wonderful kits lined up for 2014, having kicked off 2014 with Jenni Bowlin/Echo Park patterned papers, co-ordinating cardstock and matching Element Sticker Sheet.
The club is based in a modern church hall based in South Shields, Tyne & Wear. If you live nearby and would like to come along and try it for yourself you are more than welcome. Just email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Thanks for stopping by today.
