Whoop Whoop!!! DCM is here to stay!

Hello Everyone!

We are coming up on our last 3 weekends for the 2016 year, and the Organizers of DCM would like to thank you for another great year. We do have a few announcements to make for 2017 as follows:

While we have worked hard to keep our fees low and we have not had a fee increase since January 2015; due to rent increases, we must make a few small increases.

Beginning January 2017, the Weekend (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) fee will be $30.00; the single day fee for Saturday will be $25; the single day fee for Friday or Sunday will be $20.

Space rentals for Craft/Quilt events will be $200 per day and will include the Large room only. Since an Organizer must be present to open the doors; the Organizers will use the smaller “Registration” room as we see fit while the Large room is rented out.

Now, on to the fun stuff…

In 2017 we plan to add theme potlucks to our events to make them a bit more fun. These events will be on regular DCM weekends and will not be a higher fee. Participation is not required but encouraged!

We plan on purchasing an ice machine and will consistently put the Krup out each weekend for use with your own K-cups. 

Thank you all for your participation, friendship and crafty fun times! We are looking forward to 2017 and beyond!
