Fabric Fanatics are on holiday in August

Hi Folks

Both Fabric Fanatics and the evening drop in on a Wednesday are taking 4 weeks off in August.  Both will resume on Wednesday 2nd September 2015 at 7 pm.

Hope to see you then for some more Fabric fun.

Here are a few pics from last night:  knitting, mending, practice zip putting in and instruction on the crocheting of skulls were amongst the projects worked on.  Hot beverages and biscuits were also greatly enjoyed.
