Strongbones Charity/Christmas Craft Club


I must have had a senior moment last week when I e-mailed you to say craft club was on Friday 28th Jan.  This was totally incorrect as it is this Friday evening.   I wondered why only Avril turned up.  Still we had a nice evening.  I hope you will be able to make it this Friday.  It will be good to catch up with you.  You will be able to see the new layout of the shop.  The table now is in the front of the shop.


I have been sent a sponsorship form from Stongbones Children Charity. (charity no: 1086173).  They have asked me if I would kindly raise at least £25.00 by the 16th February.  This is to go towards a 10 year old girl who lives in Lower Earley.  She has learning disabilities, seizures, accelerated aging of her bones and is wheelchair bound. She badly needs a new wheelchair costing £2,200.00. When you are in the shop, if you could spare any loose change it would be gratefully appreciated. 


I am in the process of writing my next newsletter with all the updated workshops etc, One of the new clubs I will be putting in place is a Christmas Club.  This will involve making a couple of Christmas cards with the craft materials supplied, from stamping to toppers.  Start to make your Christmas cards now, so you do not fhave to rush at the end of the year!  All the materials are included and the usual tea/coffee will be available.  The cost of this club will be £6.00.  There will be samples for you to copy or simply to put your own ideas into practice. This could be a good way to bring your friends together to meet up and craft.  There will be no mess to clean up, tea/coffee severed to you and be surrounded by lots of lovely craft goodies. It will take place during the week; however I have not worked out which day would be best.  If you are interested and have a particular day which is best for you, perhaps you could let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hope to see some of you on Friday night.
