1) Join Melissa Dawkins (of Aye Aye clothing) and I for our 'craft bombing special' craft club at CCE on Tuesday evenings throughout April (starting 1st April, 6.30pm - 8pm). Free to attend, we'll have a load of materials and crafty ideas to hand - come along for a cup of tea, a few biccies and some crafting time with some like-minded creatives. Feel free to bring your own ideas if you have any, but we'll have a few projects and tools to hand if you don't.
2) If you're not local but would like to take part, please send donations of crafted items to Betsy Aidinyantz, CCE, St John's Chambers, St John's Lane, Ashford, TN24 8TF. Remember to include your name, email address and postal address so that CCE can thank you for your contribution.
3) If you have any crafty materials (especially yarns and fabrics) that you think you'll never use, we're happy to take donations and put them to use in creating the installation. Please send these to Betsy Aidinyantz, CCE, St John's Chambers, St John's Lane, Ashford, TN24 8TF. Remember to include your name, email address and postal address so that CCE can thank you for your donation.
As resident crochet-er at CCE, I've put together a couple of simple patterns for anyone who wants to donate crochet pieces to use as inspiration - a starburst motif and a basic little owl, (select 'file' > 'download as' > 'PDF', to download a PDF of each pattern):
I hope to see you at our next craft-bombing craft club on 1st April (details above) - if you have any questions please feel free to drop me a line emmajane[at]cakesandcatwalks.com
