November 2012

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

Buttons

Basic sewing kit

Ribbons

Fabric

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!

Next Meeting Tuesday 2nd October

 

We will be making poppies for The British Legion 
 
If you’d like to join in please bring some red/green fabric or yarn & some black buttons, a basic sewing kit, knitting needles or crochet hook. You can either knit, crochet or sew your poppies, Jenny will be showing us how.
 
Or you can just bring your own project!
 
You can either book online here or pay on the door
 
If you would be interested in selling poppies in a workplace or group please let me know & I will pass on your details to Jenny.
 
See you there!
