Knit and Stitch Crafternoons

Hands up if you like crafting?

And if you like cake?

And if at some point in life you've been touched by a sadness that has been made that tiny bit better by getting together with lovely people?

Still got your hands up and are able to get to Canterbury on a Thursday evening or Friday morning from 26th February, then the knit and stitch Crafternoons late or early could be the thing for you.

For the next few weeks, infact up until 13th March, we will be jumping on The Big Comic Relief Crafternoon band wagon, crafting ourselves happy and raising some cash for those whose lives are tougher than they should be.

Comic Relief sponsor charities such as Time to Change who campaign to break the silence on mental health, so if you want to do your bit, come along and see us. Anyone can eat a cake for charity and if you are stuck for inspiration we also have "Motto a Day" craft packs available or even a bit of therapeutic adult colouring.

A quilt fit for a boy

Where do you stand on the nature or nurture debate? Speaking purely from my own experience; girls are little princesses who live in castles of pink and boys like cars and everything noisy or dirty. Although at age two both my children received a ride on car for their birthday, so perhaps the appeal is universal.

 

Here's the back of the quilt that I recently made for my nephew. It's been unwrapped now and is all the way on the other side of the world.

If you live by the sea, as my little guy does, you're going to need the ocean on your quilt.

Who doesn't like the park for a quick swing and slide?

 

You also need some where to live.
 

Happy birthday Manny! Wish I was still there to drive cars around your quilt.
