Newsletter - Autumn 2012


Hi everyone, I cannot   believe how quickly the months are whizzing by! The summer is nearly over and the kids will soon be back at school.

We have managed to secure a monthly slot at Plaitford Village Hall, for a regular crop day. A day of crafty company, bring your own projects to work on. I will provide a light lunch and homemade cakes, unlimited tea & coffee.

Next crop days are Saturday’s 15th September/20th October/17th Nov ember.10am-4pm

The cost is £12 for the day, and includes all refreshments. Please book your place in advance. It is amazing how much you can get done away from home, without   the distractions.

Flo will be running a class on how to make these cards at our crop day   on Saturday 20th October, at Plaitford village hall. Please let me know if you would like to take part, so we can decide a time to run this class during the day. The cost will be £10 , stamps will be available for sale after the class.

After our disappointment , we are still looking for new premises, we need around 1,000 sq ft. So if you know of anything suitable please contact me. I would prefer to be in a unit on a farm. It must have good parking and be within five miles of SO51 6EE.

That’s all our news for now, all that is left to say is I hope to see you soon.
