Crafty Folk

This group was formed in 1998 to encourage church members to give of their talents and to further their crafting skills. It has proved to be one of the most enthusiastic groups ever. We are twelve to fourteen members and meet weekly from February to November in the church.

We mount a large display of our work at the annual church Martinmas Fair. The work is very varied, but the central display is always a Christmas one, with beautiful hand quilted Christmas stockings, cushions, three dimensional Christmas nativity scenes, large Christmas wall and door hangings, advent calendars and many more items. We also have lovely embroidered items, household goods and beautifully crafted toys. Together with the hand made greeting cards and the skilful glass painting, we have an eye catching display. Some of our work can also be found in the Church shop during the open season.

Although we contribute financially to the church and to local charities we also like to feel we can give practical assistance to others e.g. making the costumes for the Sunday School children for their nativity plays.

We love our craft work, but even more, we enjoy the fun, the laughter and the fellowship. If anyone would like to visit us, enjoy a chat and a cup of tea and see what we do, we will make you very welcome.
