A month between posts, it’s not good enough and I promise that won’t happen again. I’ve settled into my new job nicely and am able to commit myself back to crafting again, now that I am able to stay awake when I get home from work.
The most exciting news is that after a lovely chat with Sister Diane from Portland Church of Craft, I have been approved as a Flock Leader for Church of Craft ! It’s all official and it feels almost as exciting as when I graduated from university (which was probably the most important day of my life so far). Crafting means so much to me and has sustained me through some tough times, to have somebody else recognise this in me and feel that I am the right person to spread crafty love is amazing. Sister Diane is one of my many crafty heroes (Susanstars is one of my others and it was Susan who first planted the seed of Church of Craft in my brain).
So Church of Craft will be meeting for crafty fun and frollicks very soon, less than two weeks in fact.
We’ll be meeting on Sunday 24th June at FUEL Cafe in Withington from 1pm to 4pm.
This month’s project will be felting wool into beads and jewellry as well as the chance to use pre formed felt to create appliques and small accessories.
Everybody is welcome and the session is free although donations are welcome. There will also be the chance to swap craft supplies, so if you have a bag of beads you will never use, some yarn that is languishing in the corner or card making supplies you just don’t have anywhere to store, bring them along and trade them for something else.
For more information just leave a comment. Soon I’ll have a churchofcraft email address where you can contact me, but for now you can email me at notmarcie AT livejournal DOT com
