Val, Donna and Heather
DCM Organizers, Plano TX

Welcome to Dallas Crafters Marathon. We have access to a great space for crafting, quilting, sewing, paper crafts, jewelry, gelli plate monoprinting, art journaling, altered book, painting & more! 
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. We simply wanted to craft with other like-minded people and NOT be cramped.
Our facility is 4000 sq. ft. with a kitchen, two large fridges, coffee pot, lounging area, bathrooms, two large rooms and plenty of space! Each crafter also gets a six foot table, folding chair (bring a cushion). We can comfortably fit 54 crafters and we are open to adult men and women crafters above the age of 15.

To attend our meetups, there is a small fee of $25 via meetup.com. You may also register at the door for the same amount; but your spot is not reserved. All fees go to the lessor for improvements to the space and leasing fees. We do not keep any of the attendance fees, it is NOT about profit for us. 
Bring your projects and supplies to work on.  If you plan on painting or doing a messy project, please bring something to protect the tables and carpet. We have electrical outlets and extension cords. 

Thank you for visiting our blog and we appreciate your blog hop participation!

Glitter, Glue and Thread, OH MY!!

Hope your February is going well! We are ready for some warmer weather here at DCM (at least Heather is)! Most of us have been trying to whittle in some time to craft to get our fabric, glue and glitter fix.

Please check out The Busy Chicks site! This group includes local crafty businesses in the DFW area that are working together to promote local crafty businesses.

Please support your local stores and retreats! Dallas Crafters' Marathon is happy to be a part of this local group and upcoming Blog Hop!

Stay tuned for additional information for blog hop fun and prizes! Yes BIG prizes and many of them!

Anyhoo, keep on crafting, slinging the glue stick, minding the thread and all that jazz!

DCM Jan 2014 Wrap Up!

Thanks to everyone for a fabulous weekend! We had a blast crafting with everyone and meeting new crafters!

Next DCM is Feb 28-March 2nd! Bring your stuff to work on, your seat cushion, get ready to chat with other crafters and GET YOUR CRAFT ON!

Here is a pic that Cindy Murray took from the crop this weekend and one that Heather took. We have quilters, knitters, jewelry makers, costume designers and paper crafters!

If you wish to come for one day the table rental is $15.00, the whole weekend is $25.00 for table rental. The tables are 6', we have two rooms, bathrooms, microwave, coffee pot, cricut expression 2, cuttlebug, kitchen, couch, wifi and free parking. There are  many restaurants around the area as well!

We have a list of the local retreats, scrapbook stores, stamp stores and quilting shops that have provided us with business cards or post cards.

Monica at the Stamp Asylum in Plano, Texas provided DCM with five tickets to the Plano Stamp Show this last weekend. We passed out the tickets to 5 of our Friday night attendees that wanted to go to the event! Thanks Monica!

Questions? Email us! dcm@dallascraftersmarathon.com

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. We really just simply want to craft!

Who are the Organizers /Volunteers? Donna P., Heather H. and Val J. Donna and Heather met in 2007 at the scrapbook event in Arlington by chance. Val started attending DCM and we three immediately hit it off as great friends!

Why did we start this Meetup? There are very few crafty stores in our area that can hold a group of crafters and still have room for our supplies AND not be crowded. We simply wanted to craft with other like-minded people, NOT be cramped and to crop more than a day.

Why the location? Put simply, it is available to us and we feel lucky! This is a large facility, 4000 sq. ft.

Why ask for money to crop? The money for this Meetup goes to the lessor to maintain the facility, it is NOT about profit for us. We each pay the $25.00 table fee.

How long does the crop 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.
