25th November – Stories from the Studio

Many apologies for only being able to do a blog each fortnight at the moment, it’s just so busy, busy, busy here! If you’ve seen Karen or I in the past week or so, you’ll have almost certainly heard us exclaim that we can’t believe where this year has gone. Seriously, how is it December next week??

The studio has been busy over the past few days – our dressmaking, pattern cutting and crochet courses are all well underway, and we’ve also had our felted elf, reversible square skirt and needle felting flower workshops as well as running a BRAND NEW Joining Granny Squares crochet course!

We’ve also been out and about a lot – we were at the Christmas Lights Switch On celebrations in Sheffield and Chesterfield on Sunday, attended the BabyLuv baby shower event on Friday, and have even found time to put up not one but two trees at the Festival of Christmas Trees in St Mary’s Church (the Crooked Spire) – the bright purple StraightCurves tree is adorned with crafty creations, all of which have been made by our lovely learners, and the other is a Jumping Clay tree!

Gosh, that lot makes me feel tired just typing it – but I’d better save my energy, this evening we’re in FOUR places at the same time!! Come along and see us at:
Hady Primary School Christmas Fair
St Peter’s and St Paul’s School Christmas Fair
Brookfield School Christmas Market
Dronfield Hilltop Sports and Social Club Christmas Market

This Sunday, it’s the penultimate Chesterfield Artisan Market of the year – we’ll be entertaining the kids with Jumping Clay mini makes and FREE colouring in, and then next Friday looks to be just as crazy as this week with events at Eckington Camms, Westfield Infants School, and Holmehall Primary!

Most importantly, it’s our annual FESTIVE FAIR & STUDIO OPEN DAY on Saturday 3rd December! Pop in and see us between 10.30am and 2.30pm for a cuppa, mince pie and a nosy around the building – you can even partake in a festive mini-make or two!

I hope to see lots of you over the next few weeks!
