Crafty Chat Group

The Craft Group has been quiet for a while, but many members have been busy with their own craft projects during lockdown. Indeed, some have taken up new crafts to pass the time.

Therefore a meeting has been scheduled for us to start activating the renamed Crafty Chat group over Zoom on Weds 10th February at 7pm (and if there is interest also at 3pm on Tuesday 16th February).

Bring a project you’re working on or even just a brew and we’ll try and work out a programme for the coming months depending on people’s interests, starting with brainstorming ideas. All welcome.

ALL CRAFT GROUP FACE TO FACE MEETINGS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

When Coronavirus restrictions are lifted we meet at Uppermill Cricket Club on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7.00pm – 9.00pm. There is usually a £2 charge towards the cost of materials.

Members can learn a new craft or bring along some work of their own and join in the chatter. The bar is open and tea or coffee are available but please bring your own mug.

The Crafty Chat Group is available to Saddleworth WI members only.
