Dallas Games Marathon (Awesome Guys!)

We wanted to stop and thank the the Game Guys for allowing us to use the facility on the weekend they are not there. They keep the drinks and snacks stocked and buy all the items the facility needs. We in turn pay them for the use of the facility to help with updates and electricity.

If you know of anyone that is into European Board games and Card games have them check out their website, DGM Site. They have an extensive game library that is available to use while at the facility and they are happy to teach you any of the games available!

Mention Dallas Crafters' Marathon when you reach out to them so they know how you heard about their great group!

Recap and Updates!

We had a great time this weekend and I hope everyone had a blast at GASC. Bring your GASC goodies to the next DCM at the end of the month and get CRAFTY!

Did anyone see Valerie at the GASC convention? She was there passing out DCM post cards and Crafty Neighbor cruise packets. She was able to reach out to a 100 GASC participants and get our names out there!

Tracy Burtt will be at the next DCM event as our vendor! She always has wonderful items for sale. Even if you are not participating at DCM for the weekend, stop by and take a look at our location and buy some goodies from Tracy!

We have a banner on the way for the front of the building to help with identifying our front door. Having WiFi at the facility has been wonderful!! Digital scrapbookers are all set now, we can all browse for ideas and stay connected via twitter, Facebook etc. Amanda Green has accepted the task of sewing some curtains for the main room. Donna, Val and I are going to get the items needed for Amanda to achieve this task. We greatly appreciate her doing this. It may be late July before we get this done but we listened to you all and we are working on this! Last thing for now, the game guys are planning to have an electrician run more drops in the first room and activate the defective outlet. We don't have an ETA for this work but it is good to hear!

We had some new faces this weekend, thanks to everyone helped make this weekend a success!

Ok enough of listening to me, GO GET YOUR CRAFT ON!!
