I found the Jennifer Maker blog today.
Her page on the best types of paper for different crafts goes into a lot of useful detail and is worth a read, but I found her summary table useful as a quick reference guide.
A friend has been telling me for weeks about how much she’s been enjoying the recent craft classes at the Milk Cafe in Glasgow. It’s a not just a fabulously friendly little cafe with tasty home-cooked food, it’s also a great social enterprise providing a venue for a variety of projects.
They’ve been running craft taster sessions, which obviously is my sort of thing, and this week I was finally able to attend.
I’ve recently started work at a set of local care homes doing arts & crafts sessions for the residents (more crafts than art to be honest)
Been a while since I posted anything; the summer holidays have been busy including rewriting the crochet class handout for the Wool Haven. New & improved and now with photos – taken patiently & expertly by ScribbleWolf so they are of a much better quality then my efforts. The first block of classes using it finished last Saturday and I have to admit I am much happier with this new version.
This started as a “can you translate the pattern” project although I’m pretty sure the lady who asked would have worked it out the tricky bit by herself in time.
Had a fabulous time with my daughter yesterday at the Langside Community Heritage Day at Finn’s Place.
