What’s on in September 2017

5th Sept – UFO Unfinished items.   If you have a project that you have started but are fed up with and won’t ever finish you could bring it along and see if someone else would like to take it on.  You could also dig out something  that you have put away and bring it to do today.  There will also be a foiling workshop for a few people, sewing machine and iron required

9th to 17th September.  K Art at Kingstone Church.  We will be having a table to advertise our November exhibition and show examples of what we do.  There will also be the opportunity to sell items at times when we have members on duty at the church.

12th September,  Day out to St Fagans in Cardiff.  Coach leaving Madley at 8.30am with pick ups in Clehonger 8.20am, Kingstone 8.35am and Ross at about 8.50am as advised.  NO CRAFT CLUB AT MADLEY on this day

26th September.  Coffee morning for Age-related Macular Disease.  One of our members, Thelma Roper, who suffers from this, planned to have an afternoon tea earlier in the year to raise funds for this charity but was unable to do so because of illness and we are going to hold this coffee morning instead.  Cakes to have with coffee and to sell will be needed and other items for bring and buy.

 The Madley Craft Group meet at Madley Parish Hall every Tuesday 10 am  to 12 noon.

This is a friendly and informal group so just bring along any work that you want to complete, or have a problem with.

Madley Craft Group members gathered at Madley Plants garden centre on Monday July 4th, to promote the above event. Centre stage was their hand-crafted hanging basket (pictured below) complete with garden insects and slugs! All the flowers and foliage have been made by members using all forms of craftwork.

Michelle and Simon, proprietors of Madley Plants have the basket on display in the café area where, hopefully it will become a talking point for visitors. The craft group hope that the display will encourage people to go to the FREE exhibition in November.

MADLEY CRAFT GROUP AND CHARITY

Over the last 13 years we have supported a number of charities with bring and buy coffee mornings, donations from our monthly raffle and making all sorts of items.

To date we have given £6,568 in actual donations and have made clothes for premature babies both in Hereford and also in Tanzania, knitted teddies for the local police to use in road safety talks with young children and in connection with abused children and for the County Hospital for children facing painful treatment.  We have also made fiddle lap quilts and twiddle muffs for dementia patients, tea cosies, sock monkeys and many other items.

Find photos of some of our charity events and things we have made in the photos section.
