Donny Dome Craft Show


For anyone who's not been before, the show is held in one of the huge rooms in the leisure complex called The Dome. If you can make out the huge rock to the right, it's actually situated in the middle of an outdoor swimming pool.

I headed straight over to the PA stand where Darcy and Emma were demoing with Linda, Lesley and Hazel watching with intent, I was actually looking for Emma as she wasn't at our rendezvous point!

Then I caught up with her after her good samaritan act for the day. A motorcyclist came off his bike a couple of cars in front of her, so her being a nurse, put herself in danger sitting in the fast lane on the A1 keeping his head stable until the paramedics arrived, hence the reason she arrived late.

She was then in need of a sugar rush, so the lovely Linda got the cup cakes out. Look at all that pink!!!!

We headed back over to the PA stand where we found Christine and Linda. Gillian and Darcy joined us for a quick photo.

It didn't seem to be as busy as previous times, although there were a few peeps taking the weight off their feet.

But the isles were a bit sparse.

Emma took a well earned break so Gillian popped on to do a bit of demoing with Darcy.

And I managed to get a smile out of her after being told to go away a fair few times - hehehehe!!!

And Darcy on the other side.

Then we caught Mark having a crafty pink cup cake made by the lovely Linda.

I nipped off to get some stamps from Clarity and when I got back Emma was chatting to these two nutters (in the nicest possible way!!!) Apparently she did know them - hehehehe!!

Darcy taking a well earned rest and Hazel came over to say bye, so grabbed a quick photo of them both.

Then Christine and Linda came over to say bye too and Lesley had joined Emma and myself for a sit down and a drink.

And finally, the stash - 12 x 12 stencils

6 x 6 and 4 x 4 stencils

Paper Pad, Hero Arts stamps, idea-ology arrows and memory frames

PA newly sourced tissue paper, plain and script, prima findings and my go to glue, red liner tape

And lastly 4 more 6 x 6 masks.

Thanks to all for a wonderful day and it was great to catch up with everyone again.

Lovely post Sam and thanks for always taking such a lot of pics for us all to remember the day by (my camera never came out of my bag...I'm useless, lol). It was brilliant to catch up with everyone, especially the PATwits and thank you so much for the beautiful gift. I'm glad I waited till I got home before I opened it so I could enjoy your artwork in detail.... lovely!

It's a shame but I agree with you that it was the least busy I've ever seen the show in approx 7b yrs. It's nice for us shoppers but not so good for the exhibitors.

Hi Sam. Don't fall off your chair! I haven't been to blogland for a whole year so apologies for dropping off the radar. All is well with me and Ted. Life is busy hence lack of blogging and blog following. I'm going to Summer Crafting on 12 July at Doncaster Racecourse. Will you be there? Would be great to meet up and catch up. x
