Just thought i'd update on this...its nearly a 2 years later and i've had a couple of PM's about it - We now run every week on thursdays from 6-8pm. Learn to knit, crochet, sew etc. We don't charge, materials are provided and you can even have a cuppa  Cheesy

I hope to see some of you there! There's absolutely no commitment so if you are not sure just pop along and give it a go.

Just to let you all know I am starting a Stitch & Bitch group on Wednesday evenings at the Oxfam Boutique on St Mary's Street. We are looking for crafty folk to come along, get creative and make accessories as part of our 'Made with Love' range. (more info: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/content/boutique/about_boutiques.aspx#madewithlove )

If you want to help fight poverty...DIY!



Start date will be confirmed when we get some idea of how many people are interested in coming along, so message me!


I posted a seperate thread for this but I know nobody checks the welsh boards very often, so thought i'd add to this thread in the hope of getting your attention!

Thanks so much singlalala for all your help! I wouldn't have found half this stuff on my own!

We went to the ceramics museum (princesshoff) in Leeuwarden which was perfect for me as i study ceramics! Also went to the graphics museum in Groningen and the DADA exhibit in Drachten was good. I was pretty impressed with the craft supplies in Leeuwarden...trust me, so much better than Wales!

Also, we found an amazing antiques/curiosity shop in Leeuwarden, its practically a museum! The gift shop of the ceramics museum had some great work by local crafts people for sale. But you're right, not much in the way of original craft shops.

We ended up staying away from Amsterdam most of the trip, Friesland is much nicer! We had a great time so thanks a lot for all the help!

anyway, down to business!!


Beautiful blue dress (i've not had the chance to try it on yet!)


Beret and red feather fascinator


Black fascinator/hat and necklace inspired by breakfast at tiffanys!

Thank you so much blushingbluegrass, you've been an amazing partner! I cant wait to have somewhere to wear this to!!!!
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Altoid Tin Round 12 Gallery on: August 31, 2009 11:59:19 PM
PHEW!!! I am so relieved that at least one of them arrived and more so that you love it!! That was the second tin I made. I have pics of the first tin...the one that got away!!

I figured I might as well post them since the swap is all wrapped up now!


everything (except a wooden MJ silouhette heart ornament thingy which i added right at the end before sending)


Front


Back



Little plushie flamingo that actually fit in the tin (ok, with a bit of persuading!!). He had a pipe cleaner neck and legs so is very bendy and can wrap around anything. I did manage to get him to stand on one leg for all of about 2 seconds!


tiny note cards/gift tag.

Maybe one day it will turn up!! fingers crossed. I hate to think that poor flamingo will be squished into that tin forever!

Thanks both of you for your patience, I've loved this swap!!! xx


8  U.K. AND IRELAND / WALES / SEEKING CRAFTSTERS - for TOP SECRET CHARITY EVENT!! on: August 30, 2009 09:01:42 AM
I'm looking for some crafty people in/around Cardiff who may be interested in getting involved with a craft event in October. It will mainly involve clothing re-cons and alterations and recycled items. I'm looking for people who may be interested in giving a short demo on a basic re-con and/or helping put together some simple printed instructions, and also some people who may be interested re-conning some items for sale at the event (all equip/clothing provided). I cant give too much away at the moment as i'm waiting for the green light on some stuff....except to say all proceeds of the event will go to charity and it may become a more regular date for the cardiff craft calendar!

Ok, here goes....my huge package from horrormaedchen!

i wish i had somewhere clear in my house to take 'action' pics but almost everything is in boxes!


Napkins and place mats


Jar of home made cookies (YUMMY, they've all gone Smiley )
Salt and pepper set and wooden spoons.

We're about to move and the new place has a stark white kitchen, I wanted some colour to liven it up, and she's certainly done that! I love everything. My fave has to be the oven gloves. Thanks again bea, for everything. xxx
