Clocking Onto Crafting! 25.10.19

The clocks go back on Saturday which means an extra hour to

Have a crafty weekend…

Phew, that was a busy half term! We enjoyed lots of activities every day this week so a big thank you to everyone who came along and we hope the kids enjoyed their making, sticking, gluing, cutting, shaping and generally getting crafty!

Memory boxes, finger knitting, macrame, T-shirt Halloween bags, crochet and the oh-so-popular pom pom making – if you missed out and would like to join us over the Christmas holidays we’ll be scheduling our kids classes over the coming weeks so keep an eye on our website.

Turning our attention now to Halloween, if you’re having a last minute panic for a costume then keep calm and come and join us tomorrow to make and decorate a cape, running from 10.30-12pm and only £15. Please ring us on 07903 614726 if you would like to join us.

Christmas Craft Fair

Following on from the success of our first Craft Fair at Stitch! in October, we are delighted to announce our next fair will be on Saturday 7th December from 11am-4pm. Some stalls have been booked already but we have a couple more available – if you are a local artisan who would like to showcase and sell your work please get in touch with Suzanne at the shop for more details.

Please save the date and join us for mulled wine and a host of beautiful handmade crafts that would make ideal gifts.
