What is a group without MEMBERS?
What is it the popular card always says - "Membership has it's Privileges" ?
It's so true.
While everyone is welcome to look around, and view, even attend, events, only paid members get the discounts, perks, bonuses, and other privileges that come from being a member.
PUGDOG's Rock & Bead Shop sponsors this group, and all sorts of people and postings are welcome. Your membership helps keep this going, so that everyone can share their events, and find things to do. All these 3rd party listings have their own fees, rules, and attendance requirements, [I]but we will list them![/I]
In addition, PUGDOG's has workshop areas and studio spaces available, some of which require membership, but all of which offer members a nice discount. Members are also eligible for frequent use discounts, and personalized perks. Not every crafter is the same, so not every crafter needs the same perks.
Besides, $36 a year is only $3/month. About the price of a cup of good coffee. Isn't it worth that much to you to keep up, and be a member?
You never know what "Member Only" events may come up over time. After all, Membership has it's Privileges!!
