Loving Yarns & Crafts is a Community Group that is run to offer local people affordable crafts and small social group settings. 

 

Each session is run to make people feel welcome and is ideal for people who don't like attending large groups or public settings.

We origianlly started at Grimsargh Village Hall in 2021 with a monthly Knitter Knatter session however in 2022 we are running a wider range of craft sessions and at a couple of different venues to make affordable crafting more accessible especially for carers or parents of small children who need that chill out time with no responsiblities but have limited timeframe in which they can attend.

 

The sessions are run voluntarily by 4 ladies.  Dorota, Margaret, Maria and Mary.  Margaret and Maria have been members of the crafting community for many years and have both run classes as part of a previous business enterprise or employment.  Dorota and Mary offer hostess support and skill shares on their hobbies and interests.  We operate as a nonprofit community group and any surplus after hall hire and refreshment costs is ploughed back into the project .  With the Tutor led sessions the surplus is donated to the charity of the Tutors choice.  

 

 

We offer a wide range of skill share sessions : Printing, Cardmaking, Fabric Wreaths (Shabby chic interior decor or themed Christmas), Easy pottery projects, Quick Calligraphy, Silk painting, glass painting and Quilling to name just a few.  These sessions are run for 2 hours and include all the base materials you require to complete the project.  Sessions range between £6 to £10 depending on the cost of the resources. For these courses we are limited to 10 spaces so please book in early.   Check the diary for full details.

Chat & Craft Sessions.  These work on a drop in basis so you can attend the whole session of just nip in for an hour for a coffee and to craft while you chat with like minded crafters.  Please get in touch with us to discuss these sessions.  The topics for the Chat & Craft Sessions are currently the Simply Yarn Group, The Rubber Stamping Library and on Mixed Crafts Session where there will be a Stamping Library Table and a Yarn Group Table running at the same session.  This group costs £3.00 based on bringing your own resources however some resources will be on sale on the day with all proceeds going to the project charity.

We are also the hosts of The Giant Friendship Blanket Challenge 2022.  

 The Giant Friendship Blanket is a way to enjoy yourself in yarn crafts and then to help others by donating to us.  The blankets will be sewn together to see how big we can get in the year.

Last year we have managed to cover 63m2 in handcrafted baby blankets thanks to local knitters and crochet technicians.  We distibuted them though local charity workers.  We managed in total to pair up with a soft toy and provide a Christmas gift to 100 displaced children and families in need.  This year we would love to get 100m2 so as you can imagine every granny square counts.
