Hi everyone, You will not believe how excited I am to be writing this!

After what seems like forever I am so pleased to be welcoming you all back. I hope you have all managed to keep well and the love of crafting has kept you sane and busy!

 

So much has happened since I last saw you all, we have relocated back home after an unexpected rent hike at Whiteparish. This has meant building work, delays,storage issues, setbacks and landscaping to accommodate the new stamp shack. But I am sure when you see it you will love it. We even have air conditioning! 

 

We are now located between Plaitford village hall and the Trade van centre just off the A36 down a gravel track on the common. There is parking for 6 cars on the common in front of the cottage, there is additional parking at the village hall nearby. Please car share where possible. Please tread carefully as the path is gravel and uneven.    

 

We are planning on making use of my lovely garden in the sunnier weather, keeping you all safe crafting in the fresh air, under a gazebo. There is plenty of seating inside and we will be following the government guidelines doing our best to be covid safe. All spaces need to be booked in advance, a £5 deposit required for classes & £2.50 for other sessions, your contact details will also need to be given. Numbers will be restricted, so book early to avoid disappointment. Please wear a mask on arrival until seated. There will be hand sanitiser available for you to use.    

 

Some classes I will ask you to bring your own inks etc if you have them to avoid too much handling and help in controlling the virus. Do not worry if you do not have the items I have asked you to bring as I will have mine here.

 

I have missed baking cakes for the classes but have kept myself busy and updated my food safety certificate. I am sure the first request will be for lemon drizzle! I have also done my DBS check so i am able to teach children and host parties too.   

   

This year for the first time I am taking part in the Hampshire open studio trail with Jayne who most of you know. This is very exciting,  I expect in the past you may have seen the pink flags and signs out along the roadside. The date for this is from the 21st-30th August, although there will be no classes then, but please do pop in and bring your friends.  .     

There will be hand crafted goods & preserves for sale, The shop will be open and Tea, Coffee & Cake will be served in my cottage garden too.

 

We have increased our opening hours they are Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9am-5pm for shopping, although these hours are flexible.We will be opening some evenings & Saturdays 9am-2pm.These will be listed on the newsletter. Other times by arrangement, just phone first to check I am at home.    

 

We have so much catching up to do and I cannot wait to see each and everyone of you. I am looking forward to hearing all your news and hopefully seeing your crafty makes.

 

Crafty hugs, Sarah xxx
