Our 2nd Year!!! Please Read =)

First I want to thank you all for such a wonderful year of crafting, gift baskets, laughter and friendships. Our group has been running for 14 months now & we have transformed into this wonderfully fun group of women with great passion for crafting and all things fun ;)

With that said... its also time to save money!

Its that time of year again for Yearly savings on Dues!!! Pay now, don't worry about it until 2011 no matter how many meetups you attend & save over 40%!!

Dues: Dues for our group is $3 per meetup attended. If you want to save over 40% you can pay $45 and automatically have a 1 year membership. Dues can be paid online through our groups site. This form of payment is through paypal. If you pay through Paypal, please add $2 for site fees. Paypal is for yearly fees only. If you want to pay by meetup, please pay in cash. You can also pay at the meetup itself in cash. Everyone?s first meetup is always free!!

To explain the reasons for dues:

  • charges me (as the organizer) $20 every month to run the website & the meetings.
  • As a paid member you will get free patterns, craft tips & info on local event's & any other tidbits I find emailed to you.
  • I will be offering gifts and drawings for items at at least half of our meetup's. These gifts and items are paid for out of pocket by me for everyone's enjoyment!

However just so you know, the dues I collect do not cover all of these costs. I truly enjoy organizing a group and that is why I chose to do it again!!

It is so much fun!! (I ran my previous group since 2006)I love giving out the patterns and the gifts but to organize, run the website, manage members, email, collect information, gifts & goodies to give out takes a lot of time and money so that is why Meetup has a due's amount to set. I try to keep this amount low so? there are no restrictions for anyone's attendance and frequent members will save over 40%!! Trust me I really put a lot of effort into gathering neat items and information for everyone.

Again if you pay your yearly fees now of $45 you will save over 40% off the normal price of a minimum of $72 if you paid at each meetup and thats only counting 2 meetups a month. We had 36 meetups last year which would equal out to about $108 so its a great savings!!!

If any of you are ever looking for ways to help w/ group you can always volunteer to bring napkins, plates, basket items or make a basket if you'd like. That isn't required either, just a thought since other members ask how to help.

If you have any questions at all feel free to email me!!
