We have decided to hold the meeting on a monthly basis and see how it goes. We also have enough members to hire the village hall instead of holding the sessions in someone's front room which was very nice, don't get me wrong and many thanks to Val, but in the hall there is more room and we can put some tables up.
I would love to hear from anyone who has a similar group or maybe attends one. What sort of things do you all do? I would like to keep people coming through the doors, and want to make the meetings interesting for all especially for those that might like to learn a new craft. Our skills base is huge and most of us can do more than one craft and we are keen to pass those skills to others if they want to learn something new.
I have a large selection of books, magazines and project instructions that I will be putting out to also encourage the ladies to try something new, and I thought I could make up some small projects that we could do together, for example a Christmas decoration or a fabric heart etc. For the next meeting I am going to teach them how to make an embossed greeting card.As I say, if anyone has any ideas, please get in touch.
p.s. I have read several posts that mention the Cath Kidson bags and how difficult they are to obtain. My local Tesco seems to have a steady trickle, and whilst I cannot promise anything, if you would like me to purchase one for you, I will do so gladly. I have found that the floral ones are much harder to come by but they do seem to have the blue polka dot. I am not sure how much the postage will be, but I use recycled bags from work and would only charge what the post office charges me.
Leave me your email address in the comments, or if you want to keep your details private contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope this helps someone out. Bye Dev X
