What about a lovely fabric wreath.

Checkout Christmas decorations on the internet & let your imagination run wild!

What you need to bring will be up to you but I would suggest the following ….

Felt – try Wilkinson, Pound shops for cheap felt


Basic sewing kit



Beads & wire – Bunyip is the place to go, ask for advice & the lovely ladies will help

Paper & pens for templates


We will be in our new home at the RSPCA shop in South Street

Normal charge of £3.50….. money raised goes to the RSPCA

You can purchase any items from the shop on the night & feel free to bring any donations you wish.

See you there!

October 2013 – Poppy Appeal

make, do & mend man October 2013

Many thanks to everyone who joined us in our new home this month.

Judging by the feedback you all seemed to like the new venue, it had a cosy feel & was much brighter than the Phoenix.

With this in mind I’ve decided to hold the next 2 meetings there & possibly into 2014.

You all made some beautiful poppies!

I was very impressed with my urn & made tea all night….. hence the lack of photo’s!

We will be selling the poppies in the shop soon….. watch this space for dates.
