So I came across these most gorgeous beads and just had to find a project to use them. I remembered that my Grandma always had a Maltese crochet cover over her glass of water by her bed and this inspired me to get my hook out. Once again, which colour, which colour, aw just use all of them.
So for this week’s Saturday Afternoon Workshop we will be making these pretty crochet jug and glass covers. You can choose one of these three colour combination but personally I think the blue and white are going to be a winner. We start at 1pm so if you fancy it then give me a call.
I’ll be putting the kits for sale on line very soon so keep an eye on the blog. x
It’s been a very busy month so many apologies for the lack of activity on the Manfield blog. This Saturday we are looking forward to seeing, the excellent teacher, Michele Marshal and learning everything there is to know about Toe Up Sock knitting. The day runs from 10am to 4pm and is just £30. If you fancy a lovely day with lovely company then drop us a line to book a place.
Promise to update more regularly from now.
Happy New Year Everyone.
After a fabulous break we’ve opened the shop to 2014 and are raring to go. First job on the agenda was arranging workshops. So many ideas. We are so lucky that Jane Crowfoot, Suzie Johnson and Debbie Abrahams squeeze us into their busy schedules to come to Manfield Crafts. Also our Saturday afternoon workshops were so popular last year we’ve planed a range of fun projects that, hopefully, include lots of new techniques and ideas for both knitting and crochet.
On our first workshop on Saturday 18th January we will be making this pretty pin cushions. The project includes short row shaping, intarsia and lace work. Fancy it ? Then drop us a line and book a place.
Keep an eye on our WORKSHOP AND EVENTS as we will be updating us all through the year. Looking forward to 2014. xxxx
