Dallas Crafters Marathon

I would like to invite you all to the MONTHLY crop of the Dallas Crafters Marathon.  This is a great space for crafting, to see pictures of the space check out our website www.dallascraftersmarathon.com

How long does this last? This event lasts from Friday (6pm to Midnight) Saturday (10 am to Midnight) to Sunday (10am to 3pm). You may leave your projects overnight if you wish.

Who are we? We are a group of crafty people that like to craft together and share ideas, it's that simple. We are not Direct Sales Consultants who have classes at our Meetup to promote sales.

Where are we? We have gotten feedback that the location is difficult to find the first time.  We are on the Southeast corner of Parker and Alma.  Turn in between 7-11 and Shipley Donuts we are the suite directly in the path of this drive way in between the Indian Restaurant and the Hair Salon.  We will have a banner up with our name on it.

Amenities: A six foot table (there are two large round tables that two persons could share), WIFI, folding chair, lounging couch, kitchen with 2 full size fridges, microwave, coffee pot, bathrooms and soda and snacks for a small fee on the honor system (you may bring your own if you like). Close to local restaurants and big box craft stores. You will also meet wonderful crafty people to share ideas and projects!

Who can attend? We are open to adult men and women crafters above the age of 15. We can accommodate quilters, sewing groups, stampers, scrapbookers, jewelry makers etc!

How much does it cost? There is a small fee of $25 for the entire weekend; or if you can only make one or two days the fees are as follows: Friday only $10, Saturday only $15 , Sunday only $10.  You may reserve your spot by Paypal-ing me your fee upon RSVPing (be sure to include your name and if you will only be attending one day and which day that is). If you register at the door the fees are the same; but your spot is not reserved.

What do I need to bring? Bring your projects and supplies to work on. If you plan on painting or doing a messy project, please bring a dollar store shower curtain liner to the event (there is a Dollar General in the shopping center).  We must protect the tables and carpet.  If you need electrical, bring an extension cord, we have limited electrical outlets. Bring a cushion for your chair, or if necessary a comfortable computer chair.

If you would like to be a vendor, or have a class please email me separately.  We can post these events separately and work out the cost of using the facility. There are two separate rooms, so crafting can go on in one room and a class in the other.

Email me or Facebook Message me with any questions or concerns.  [masked]
Hope to see you there!
