Textile Craft 1

Leader Dianne Copeland Tel: 01604764415
Deputy Sue Latter Tel: 01604 762917

We meet on the third Thursday of the month from 10:00am at leaders home.

Our efforts so far have produced a felt flower brooch, a hedgehog made by folding an old paperback book. We have had a demonstration of making acholi beads from rolling paper to form the bead. We have had help with learning how to crochet and we are presently working as a group making felt ornaments.

The group has shown interest in Knitting, Ribbon Weaving, Lampshade making, quilting, embroidery and making a cloth bag using 5in squares of material. We are open to suggestions and ideas from the group and hope to cover all our interests and any new ideas in the coming months and will set a flexible programme to cover this and seek help and assistance when we can.

We have space in the group for 1 or 2 new members.

Quilting

Leader: Sue Latter Tel: 01604 762917
Deputy: Linda Paterson Tel: 01604 590735

The group meet on the 1st Tuesday of the month from 14.00 - 16.00 hours at The Elgar Centre, 1A High Street, Upton, NN5 4EN (https://elgarcentre.weebly.com/)

There is a large free car park and the Number 15 bus stops right outside.
It is not necessary to have any quilting/patchwork experience - there are complete beginners and one or two who are very proficient, both hand or machine sewers, although we do tend to hand sew at meetings. We all help one another, exchanging ideas and tips although there is no 'formal' instruction. We have the use of an Accuquilt machine for super accurate fabric cutting, available at the meetings or to borrow

As we have to pay for room hire, there is a charge of £2 per person at each meeting.

For more information please call Sue or email her by clicking the link on the top right.
