January Upcycling Crafternoon

Saturday, 28 December 2013

This time every year, following Christmas when I receive lots of lovely gifts I stand back and take stock of all the things I am lucky to have. Some of the things however have perhaps lain unused or unloved, waiting for me to ‘get round to doing something with this’. January is a great time to do just that. After the Christmas rush we have a little more time, perhaps a little less money so upcycling crafting is just the ticket.

I’ve been thinking about what I could do with my enormous stash or fabric, 1/3 full pots of paint, bits of ribbon etc and the answer is, lets use it! Bring along something you want to breathe new life into, a picture frame, a moth eaten jumper, a glass jar collection or even tatty books and lets see what wonderful item we can make.

This session is £15 each and include materials (except the item you want to upcycle) and tea time treats. Booking is essential and can be done here

Charity Bake Stall Success

Wednesday, 11 December 2013

Thanks to the Old Dumbarton Cake Club who baked and took care of our charity bake stall at our Yuletide event on 28th November. We raised £291.90 for Yorkhill Children’s Hospital. A great achievement I’m sure you’ll agree.

Thank you Yorkhill 1
