Crafty Sew 'n' Sews

  LOGO Crafty Sew n Sews                    The ‘Crafty Sew ‘n’ Sews’

Just a quick update on our first meeting at Chilbolton Village Hall on the 20th February: we had a good turn out from the local area, in total thirteen people, many with talents in craft and design, with everyone wanting to learn something new and willing to offer the group ideas for future events.


Future meetings will be held on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month in the Durnford room at Chilbolton Village Hall between 7 and 9pm. We are trying to achieve an activity or a demonstration on each evening. On the 6th March we were taught to crochet and on the 20th each person sewed a decorative coat hanger.


Other activities will include pattern cutting, other sewing projects, Easter and spring crafts (scheduled for April 3rd) and anything you would like to have a go at. This is a community-run group where your ideas count and you can drop in and out of it as you please. As previously said all adults welcome. The fee is nominal and at present stands at £1 per person, this is for hall hire. Materials for each project will be covered individually, but we have found that everybody has a lot of items at home that they have kindly shared.


It’s a great place to meet with like-minded people for a coffee or tea and a chat and hopefully you will achieve something you’ve wanted to do while making new friends.Please make a note of our meeting on 

19th of June - there's a change to our schedule, crocheting a member Terry will be kindly running the evening.  The bags will be on the 17th of July.
