Fabric Wreath Ladies Craft Evening

Last week I hosted a craft evening for a group of ladies who have sent up their own Women's Institute style group. where they get together once a month and try a new skill or craft. Their latest evening involved making fabric rag wreaths. You can see the fantastic results below! All materials, hoops, fabrics and hearts were provided and it was down to them to choose their colour scheme and get crafting! 

If you would like to purchase a rag wreath or have one custom made please visit my shop or contact Becca at Alternatively you can hire me for the evening for your own craft party!

Jubilee Bunting Evening

In preparation for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee we held a Jubilee bunting making evening at our new venue in Insole Court. Our new venue allows all crafters to be sat around a central table so they can join in together and take a sneaky peak at everyone else's work! The craft involved using paper bunting templates and a mixture of fabrics, felt and buttons to create their own unique garland ready for the weekends celebrations.
