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.


Crafting Catch Up

A whole term has gone by in a blur, and our crafting numbers were somewhat depleted as we nursed children through chicken pox, ourselves through flu, house movings, job changes and various other adventures.

Here is a quick catch up of the crafts we did manage through the winter months

we wet felted tea cosies

with wonderfully colourful cosy results

We knitted wee rabbits and sewed up a few other woolly creations…

knitted bunnies from a square, knitted horse and gnome

Some gumnut babies sleeping in their gumleaves made an appearance…

And we even managed to help some classes dip rainbow candles before winter camp…

Dipped beeswax rainbow candles, and rolled beeswax candles

Thankyou to everyone who helped us keep the crafting flame alive last term.  Here’s hoping this term is easier to keep weaving our crafting sunshine.
