Craft Club

Handmade paper roses

A couple of months ago I was thinking about 2020 and how I try to carve out more creative time in what is, quite honestly, a busy life.  I work at my day job four days a week, have a child in Reception, and a toddler.  But I am also aware that being creative is very good for my mental health, especially after we suffered a big trauma in 2019. 

So I decided to try and find a way not only to spend more time creating but also to spend more time with other people who are creative.  I have been teaching quilting workshops for nearly three years and love it, so I thought: why not start my own creative communities and spend time exploring my own creativity while others do the same.  My Craft Clubs were born. 

I was delighted to find two venues that were happy to work with me, and last week I held my very first Craft Club at the Fromeway.  I was so pleased to be joined by ten lovely ladies who all wanted to meet others and learn new crafts.

People brought along some beautiful projects to work on and I loved hearing the stories behind their creations.  I taught everyone how to make roses from old books and I think a good time was had by all. 

I am really looking forward to launching my second club, at Millie Moon in Frome, with a launch party on Monday 3 February 2020. 

Full and up-to-date details of both of my Craft Clubs can be found here.

Here’s to a crafty 2020 – and if you are local to me I very much hope to see you at one of my Craft Clubs!
