We have emerged from our respective dark rooms and are well into planning and development for the coming year. We have learnt so much since we sprang into life in May of 2106 and now feel ready to make some big changes. Our dual focuses of feeding the crafting revolution and crafting for charity remain intact but we have new ideas within them. We have seen, through almost every activity we have engaged in, how much crafting aids wellbeing and so we are making a commitment to that through both our workshops and our new product range. Coming together to craft has been the best thing we have done so you can expect to see more of that. This will not be restricted to just the island as we are developing virtual ways of connecting to ensure as many people as possible are given the chance to join in our creative makes.
We were invited to join our island Music Matters Christmas sing a long as Coral and I had sewn the bags for their brand new ipod shuffles. Members of this group either live with dementia or care for someone who does. We had a fabulous time and realised just how important supporting groups like this is – this will roll forward into 2017.
Our biggest challenge has been storage as we have products we take to craft events and also sell through our online shop. With new products in development we need to have a wee clear out so we are having a bit of a sale online – HERE.
Over the next few months we will be rolling out a workshop programme focused on crafting for wellbing as well as continuing our very popular Craft Club. On April 16th we will be hosting a day of activities and information sharing for crafting and wellbeing practitioners based on and off the island. If you would like to find out more just complete the form below and we will add you to the distribution list. It promises to be a day that will boost our own individual sense of wellbeing and set up opportunities going forward. WATCH THIS SPACE!
We do not want to roll into the New Year without wishing you all a truly fabulous 2017. Keep crafting people.
