20/11/15 - CHRISTMAS IS GETTING ALL CRAFTY
Yes, I feel that Christmas is nearly upon us, especially if our Craft School activity is anything to go by. I have heard the whirrrrrrrr of sewing machines, the tuts at dropped knitting stitches, the ooooooohhhh, aaaaaaaawwww, of something beautiful being made, and the ouch of when the needle goes in someone's finger!
This beautiful Etuil box was made by Chris, who is extremely talented and has taught some of our ladies to make Etuil Sewing boxes. This Christmas tree Etuil box opens magically to reveal the hidden treasure of sweets inside.
Then we have had Liz teaching our ladies how to make a Christmas Tree Skirt, the work and skill involved has been quite staggeringly beautiful. I am overwhelmed by the ladies who undertook this sewing task, as it looks like one of those things that 'anyone' could do - I think not. The results were simply exquisite.
Then we had stockings, and more stockings and even more stockings being sewn, 6 ladies, 25 numbers to be cut out, designed, sewn together, I must admit I lost count...Then lastly and by no means least as the classes are all fully booked and we are raring to go. The Christmas Wreath classes start in earnest first week of December and we have 6 full classes, so Jenna and I have a lot of greenery to freshly cut for each class.
So, keep in touch with us about all our classes in The Craft School - there are going to be some great classes in the Spring, watch out! We might just catch you learning a new skill very soon!With the warmest of Christmas wishes to you all and your family,
