The Linuwel School Fair is almost here

a table of fair crafts

We are stitching double time to finish all our treasures in time for the fair.  There are sweet little bed sets with pillows and blankets for a favourite doll, more needle felted folk to finish, daring digit dolls with enormous longbows, crochet hairclips and badges and even paper lanterns for tealights to fold.   If you can help out on Friday to finish a seam, set out the display table, or attach our labels and prices, we will be busily working from 9.00 am till after school pick up time to be ready for the big day.  Let Diana or Jill know if you can lend a hand and we will have a cuppa ready to welcome you, no experience necessary.


A Hopeful Hobby Horse

Hobby Horse

Lovingly stitched by Mikola, and superbly sanded by Diane, this hopeful hobby horse would love to find a rider to go home with at the Linuwel School Fair.  With bells on the harness and soft ears to whisper into, each adventure will be filled with magical tinkling music.

A Big thankyou to Veronika, Sharon, Maddy and Diane for their help in finishing a few more fair items.  If you can spare an afternoon on Tuesday  30th October from 12.00 til 2.30, or some time on  Friday 2nd November between 9.00 and 2.00, We would love some more help to tie off those loose threads, stitch that last button into place, and glue together the final few wooden toys.  No experience necessary.

Hope to see you there, or at the fair!

St Francis

Needle felted St Francis

As it is almost All Saints Day ( Nov 1st), we would like to share with you our St Francis Of Assisi, lovingly needle felted with inspiration from Marie of Soft Earth.  He is standing alongside all our other needle felted treasures and crafts to be sold at the Linuwel School Spring Fair.  Come along and enjoy the fun on Saturday 3rd November at 133 Morpeth rd East Maitland.

Down in the pumpkin patch

Pumpkin sprites

These little pumpkin sprites would look right at home on an Autumn nature table, or for a little springtime halloween tableau.  Hand stitched from felt and lightly stuffed with carded sheeps wool, the spiral vine holds it’s form with a pipecleaner stitched firmly inside the felt casing.

The school fair is fast approaching, so mark the date on your calendar and and save up those dollars to spend at the craft stall.  Hope to see you there.  Linuwel School Fair, Saturday November the 3rd, 133 Morpeth rd East Maitland.
