Friday 1 to 3pm
Held at Crumpsall Community Hall, Cleveland Road, Crumpsall.
Every week eleven intrepid crafters make their way to our Craft class. Full of good intentions they then proceed to do their own thing. We have Hilda making enough Christmas cards to send one to every resident in Manchester, while regaling us with stories of her problem neighbours and the misfortunes of her nephew. Marion likes to knit teddy bears and stick glittery beads on to pictures! Wyn, Mary, Naomi and Irene are very busy doing cross stitch. Jean, at the moment, is knitting snowmen hats for chocolate oranges (as you do). Eileen meanwhile is doing complicated Pergamano. Maureen is knitting baby blankets by the score and Beatrice is knitting baby cardigans. Apart from all that we drink our coffee and try to solve all the world's problems. So if anyone has any ideas for craft projects and would like to join us, please come along. Janet failed to mention the scarf she has been knitting for the last six months!
The craft class is a nice friendly social gathering. They are people doing different crafts, mainly card-making, knitting, embroidery and discussing the latest news. We do have a laugh and a chat, talking about the latest film or drama and one of our members has surprised us with cakes on several occasions which are enjoyed immensely but not good for our figures!
