While at our local Scrapbook Crop (held at The Craft Room in Lincoln) we were told that the shop would be closing in the next 2 weeks.
Last night was the last crop to be held before the close :(
After much discussion last night we all decided that we needed to continue meeting up as the Scrapbooking was only one reason, the second (and main reason) is the social element of the craft.
I have been scrapping since 2005 and for the last 3-4 years have been attending once or twice a month for the crop. Over this time I have made many friends, and at times the support network of friends is more important that meeting to scrap.
The good news is that between the 7 of us we hope to be able to meet at someones house. The big difference will be not having a 'shop' full of stock to chose from... I guess this means I will have to be mega organised!!!
They do say that as one door closes another opens, I am now looking forward to stepping through the door when the 7 of us meet up in 3 weeks time :)
