Crafty Tips and Hints

One of our followers found these amazing books on crochet and knitting – direct from Japan Click here. These are great if you are a chart follower, as charts uses a universal language unlike written patterns across the world.

Pomadour24’s Craft Cafe not only has a large range of knitting and crochet patterns, you can also find sewing and felting alongside beading, embroidery and patchwork. A great resource that needed to be shared.

Being creative really is good for you…

Learn as we go... Felting
Learn as we go… Felting

This weekend we were joined by Bobbie who is taking part in the 100 Job Challenge. Bobbie has an unusual migraine disorder that meant that for a long time she was unable to work. When she felt ready to rejoin the employment world, like many she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do that would work well with her illness. So she set about the challenge of trying 100 different jobs while raising awareness of MVBD (Migraine variant balance disorder) and funds for 2 charities, The Mediatation Trust and K.O.R.E Therapy. Both organisations have been at the forefront of Bobbie’s road to recovery.

Our November Learn as we go… Felting group was Job #26 for Bobbie and to say she had a great day with us would be an underestimation. Just read what she had to say about working at Unravel & Unwind CIC here and you will understand what I mean by saying Creativity really is good for you. Don’t just take my word for it, read Bobbie’s words.

If Bobbie has inspired you to come along and take part then do please feel free to “drop in” or try out any of our workshops. If Felting is something you would like to try, then our next session is on 13th December, but please do ensure you book up first as it does fill up fairly quickly.

One of the things I like to achieve with Unravel & Unwind is to provide affordable sessions in which you can learn different creative skills, and our felting group is no exception to this “rule”. I made the decision a few months back that we don’t always need a tutor to show us how to do something. This not only keeps the costs down but also provides the participants the opportunity of peer support and sourcing their own inspirations.
