I went on a jolly jaunt today to Bolton to meet up with fellow members of the Fuse Craft Collective! I was late as I only read the invite as Tottington Church Hall which to my mind would mean the church hall in Tottington. I visited all 3 churches in Tottington and none of them were the correct one although there were a lovely bunch of ladies having a coffee morning in the Methodist Church who took a shine to Tara! I had a look at my A to Z of Lancashire and discovered that there was a Tottington Road in Bolton that has a church on it - as soon as I saw that I knew where to go! After a detour for a police incident I arrived at the hall at 10.45am - the meeting was from 10 til 12. I say meeting but I really mean chatting and having cups of tea and cake whilst making your choosen craft!
The lady in the teal jumper does fabulous cross stitch - with teeny tiny stitches. She must have infinite patience! The three ladies in the back are all card makers and had just learnt another technique from a different lady. The clown in the front on the chair is great and Tara was very taken with him!
A general view of everyone mingling and chatting!
And these ladies are making a banner for the group which will be displayed at any craft fairs we do. It's a collective piece and should look great when it's finished.
And I sold a Mod chicken doorstop to the lady who knit the clown - so well worth going and it was nice to sit and chat and craft with like minded people too :)
