We had a fantastic response to our stand and we could have sold out if we had been a sales table! Lots of people had already seen the D-A-M-E website before the show so it was nice to see what they thought of our wonderful group.
A huge thank you has to go to Beverley Read and her cousin Eileen for manning the stand all day. Also thanks to Roz for organising the promotional items, sign and bringing every ones items to the show and Helena for making the stand and bringing the cloth lol!
It was a group effort and lots of our members sent items and helped to make a display we could be really proud of so a huge thank you to each and every one.
It was lovely at the end of the day when Andy Hopwood told us D-A-M-E was an asset to the show, it really made all the hard work and effort involved worthwhile. Again a huge thank you to Andy and all the Miniatura team for their continued support.
We recently had this email from Miniatura with permission to use it on our website, we thought you may be interested to see what they think of our group...
As organisers of Miniatura we are always keen to encourage new makers into the hobby, after all many of the people who 'have a go' today are the artists of tomorrow. Organisations like D.A.M.E. are aspirational without being exclusive. This strikes a good balance, getting new makers to try their hand, have somewhere to show and get feedback whilst still striving for high quality across the board. This approach is very much in accordance with Miniatura's attitude and we are delighted to offer space to D.A.M.E. to display the work of existing members and encourage new ones.
You will see D.A.M.E. at all Miniatura shows:
Saturday 13th June 2009 - Murrayfield Stadium, Murrayfield, Edinburgh
October 3rd & 4th 2009 - NEC, Birmingham
March 27th & 28th 2010 - NEC, Birmingham
