It's nearly time for our popular Christmas decoration meeting!
This year you can choose your decorations……. search the internet for fab ideas, pop to the library to browse through books….. or better still make your own design!
To get you started here's a few ideas…
Or you can try this website
Have you tried rag rug Christmas decorations?
Great for using up spare fabric or old clothes!
What you need to bring will be up to you but I would suggest the following ….
Felt – try Wilkinson, Pound shops for cheap felt
Basic sewing kit
Beads & wire – Bunyip is the place to go, ask for advice & the lovely ladies will help
Paper & pens for templates
Hessian & hook for rag rugs
There will be a prize for the most creative decoration!
Spaces are filling up….. don't forget to book online to secure your place.
See you there!
If you love vintage & handmade goodies then this is the place to be!!!
The good news is…… it's a Sunday!!
What a perfect way to spend the day with the family and get in the Christmas spirit.
Get all your present under one roof & support local makers in the process.
But before that we have…….
We'll be making Christmas decorations
