Crafts2Share

Crafts2Share logoWhat are the aims of the group?

  • To use the gifts that we have been given in our Christian service to others
  • To enjoy making crafty things such as embroidery, toys, quilling, collage, calligraphy, knitting, sewing, crochet, working with wood, patchwork, cards and much more
  • To make things to give away to people who may appreciate receiving a handmade card or gift

Who can come along?

  • People who already enjoy doing crafts, from beginners to the more experienced
  • Men or women
  • Those who would like to watch others crafting and learn new skills themselves
  • Members of the church family and people in the community ('Crafts2Share' is one of our 'Loose Ends' activities)

When do we meet?

  • There are three meetings a month (see below for details)
  • Come regularly to the meetings, or every now and then, whichever suits you best

What happens at the meetings?

  • People bring their individual crafts to work on
  • You have the chance to take an interest in a new craft
  • A time of prayer and a period of reflection asking God to bless the gifts and those who will receive them
  • We see what has been made and make plans to give these things away

Who might receive these gifts and cards?

  • It could be for anyone in the church or community who has something to celebrate, or someone who is going through a difficult time and would welcome a handmade card or gift.

If Crafts2Share is something you might like to be part of, and would like more information about, please contact us for details, download our publicity postcard - or just come along to a group meeting; you will be made very welcome. Crafts2Share is coordinated by Judith Anderson and Jackie Austin and is one of our 'Loose Ends' activities.

We are hoping that, twice a year, we will have a special meeting to allow all our Crafts2Share group members to get together. The first has been planned for Friday 16th June 2017, and will be a ‘bring and share’ lunch at Orchard House, 29a Cromer Road, Sheringham. Just bring a plate of food for our shared lunch table. We will meet from 12 until 2 p.m. The second has been planned for Friday 15th December 2017 at 7pm at 47, Norwich Road, and is a bring and share Christmas buffet lunch.

We may book in another opportunity for gathering together, a walk has been suggested ending for tea and cake somewhere, sounds great!
