Important News for Craft Group (THURSDAY AFTERNOONS)

Posted on 9th March 2020

My craft group, Crafting with Shuttermonkey, started in April 2016.

I had hoped that the group would grow enough to be sustainable in the longer term. However, attendance has dwindled and I have therefore taken the difficult decision to end craft group.

The final meeting will be on Thursday, 2nd April 2020 at 12pm.

Note this DOES NOT AFFECT QUILTING CLASSES in any way. Classes on Wednesday evenings and Thursday mornings will resume as normal in September.

Please check the Diary Dates page to check the weeks that we are meeting!



Christmas Themed Cushion Workshops

Posted on 21st October 2019

I have another two workshops organised before the end of 2019.

They are both for Christmas themed cushions:

The Snowman Cushion Workshop will take place on Tuesday 5th November and the Reindeer Cushion Workshop will take place on Tuesday 26th November. More details for both workshops and how to book a place can be found on the Workshops page.

Both cushions are approx. 19″ sqaure and would look great next to the Christmas Tree cushion that a few of you made back in July.

We made the Christmas Tree cushion at the ‘Christmas in July’ workshop that took place on one of the warmest days of 2019!

If cushion covers aren’t to your liking, you could make the blocks into a table runner to decorate your festive table.

Rainbow Sampler – Block 7

Posted on 7th May 2019

This is the 7th block from the Rainbow Sampler Quilt to be made at class later this year:

This block is called Snail Trail.

My apologies for the lateness of posting this block – I was having too much fun on the Perceton SWI annual trip yesterday and it completely slipped my mind. I will post the 8th block later today.

More information about the class can be found here.
