Craft Café provides an opportunity for people who enjoy making things to get together for Craft, Company and a Cuppa. We meet on the fourth Monday of every month between 1.30 and 4-00, in Room 3 of the Parish Centre, to work together and get to know one another better.
Between us we enjoy a wide range of crafts including knitting, sewing, crochet, beading, tapestry, embroidery, quilting and card making. Some of us are experts while others are enthusiastic beginners, and there are always opportunities to learn new crafts or to get advice from people who are more experienced.
Members are always welcome to bring their own projects along. Also, remembering Jesus’ words “I needed clothes and you clothed me” (Matthew 25.36), we make items for The Mission to Seafarers, and various Mothers’ Union projects for families overseas, special care baby units and dementia patients.
We are also active in raising funds for the work of St Saviour’s in this parish. We run a very popular craft stall at the Spring Fair and this year made over £300 at our Christmas Craft Stall, selling hand-made cards, decorations and Christmas gifts.
All our meetings end with a short time of prayer, when we pray for one another, for the people for whom we’re making things (including ourselves) and for those we know who need our prayers. And we end our time together with the words of the Grace.
Dates for winter 2016-2017.
