Bye bye....

Hi, Helen here.

Just wanted to say thanks to Lynne and Toni for all their hard work over the last few months running the Worcester Park Craft Club - and that we're all sorry tonight was the last one... Here are the few pictures I took tonight - it was great fun - I think  BJ enjoyed herself...
Group  Decopatch...
 or feeding Harry...
it was lovely to see Rachel and her 7 week old baby Harry !
or my stamping space!

Thanks everyone - hope to run into you again somewhere - keep crafting!

There will be a Christmas Fair at Christ Church with St Philip on Saturday 7 December.

We are having a stall and it should be fun!

It's nearly christmas!

I'm sorry but I've neglected you recently!

In terms of work life balance there hasn't been any balance.
All work and no play for me.

BUT....I've heard a rumour that it's nearly Christmas so we are going to be doing Christmas Decorations at Craft Club tonight

Be there if you can ...7.30

Only 2 days to go....

Don't forget we are meeting on Tuesday night 1 October at Christ Church with St Philip, Ruskin Drive

We are planning to make Cute Felt Things-Hearts, Birds and maybe a few other animals.

We have some materials available so bring your scissors and turn up..
You can still purchase a loyalty card even if you didn't have one last time.

See you there

The group worked very hard to achieve this in a short time.
There are 20 triangles on it at the moment and some members decided to do more at home.
Can't wait to see it.

Group Bunting....the progress

Here's some photos of what we got up to last night.

We missed you Helen and BJ

Cut the triangles using a template - we used a rotary cutter, but scissors is fine.


Here are some finished triangles


trim the point as close as possible without cutting the stitching, turn inside out and press.

 Pin the triangle to the bias binding
Sew along the bias binding making sure the triangle is tucked firmly inside. Space the triangles as you wish. I like a space but I've seen nice bunting where the triangles are very close together.
Hang your bunting!

Group Bunting

It was an amazing effort and production line at Craft Club tonight.
Some  stalwart cutters of triangles, a number of people who brought their sewing machines out from the cupboard and one very enthusiastic new sewing machine owner.

Pictures of the bunting tomorrow.

It looks pretty good.

Thanks to everyone who came to make it such an enjoyable evening.
