Happy New Year

I wish you all a very Happy New Year and hope you are enjoying the snow!

We had a very busy run up to Christmas and met so many lovely people in the process. We were at Magdalen School Christmas Fair, which was buzzing with Christmas shoppers. It was our first time there, but I think it will be an annual event in our diary. I for one did most of my Christmas shopping there, as there were so many lovely stalls.! If you didn't go - look out for it next year.

We were also at the Brackley Craft Fair in the town hall, which was unusually busy and we meet many crafty folk of Brackley. The time there flew with chatting to people and enjoying the vibe, but I think the highlight of December was the Victorian Christmas Fair in the Courtyard. We set up in the snow and frost, but the sun shone and lots of people came for a chat and to see all the great things going on. We stayed there until about 4pm, when the sun dipped below the buildings and it started really getting cold. It was such a lovely day and a real demonstration of what a great community Brackley is becoming.

Well, enough of looking back and lets look forward to an exciting 2010. We have already got three workshops organised and we are having our first crafty get together tonight at Rachael's house on Hill Street.

The workshops are as follows:
Knit your own socks: 6 Feb/27 Feb/ 13 Feb, 3-5 pm, £3, The Courtyard Coffee House, Brackley
Learn to Pegloom: 6 Mar, 2-4 pm, £5, St Peter's Church Hall, Brackley
Easter Family Crafts: 27th Mar , 2-4pm, £5, St Peter's Church Hall, Brackley

For further details please see the links under our new 'Pin Money Workshops' section. If you would like to come to a workshop, please download a booking form and send it back to me with payment. If you are able please feel free to print out a poster and display it, and/or give a leaflet to your neighbour or friend. Word of mouth is really powerful!

I hope to see you at one of our events in the near future. Please do keep checking back to the blog, where I will be posting information about all our events and where to find us next.

Keep on crafting! X
