My clever crafty friends

 Tuesday night saw the return of our Craft Group after the summer break and look what they brought with them.  Are'nt they all very clever
Anne's bag and embroidered piece.   Jan's bag.

Our little friendly group have been meeting once a fortnight on a Tuesday night for some 15 years. We have some great days out, enjoy holding Saturday workshops and attending workshops, visiting galleries and craft events and some nice meals out too.  We have a monthly raffle when a member will make something with the money going into a pot to pay for guest speakers or a coach if we want to go somewhere. Magazines, books, fabrics, haberdashery are often brought in as give aways or to swap. Each member brings a different talent to the group, even if its only the capability to make us laugh.
 Our lovely group leader Barbara Jepson, who is also a member of the TEN PLUS TEXTILE GROUP,  keeps us all inspired and all our members share their individual skills with the  others.

Long may we meet.


  1. Great photos Lynn, I think you are the catalist for the group now. Thanks for all your enthusiasm and your ability to make us all have a good time at the meetings.

    I miss the group I used to go to at Lane Ends

  4. Wonderful post to browse all those lovely makes from your talented group. It must be so good to get together there.
    Saw your comment on Carol's blog.....You MUST get a Pogo mini printer but just a warning to check that your camera is compatible. I know a couple of people who ended up buying new cameras to be able to use the pogo! you can get them on the net quite cheaply.... around £25 including some photo cards. We didn't shop around and paid £45! You can also do lots of arty things with them too so look at Youtube.
    Love jo x

    1. Thanks Jo, looks like something i should investigate.
