Hello Ladies, as I write this, we are in somewhat of a weather damp patch, I do hope that by the time you read this we are back in summer clothes… I am ever hopeful.

In the coming weeks, the Craft Committee are moving around the Federation, with enamelling, foil pewter work, powertex and polymer clay classes. I hope you have found something you have enjoyed, there is a lot of effort that goes into finding the right tutor and craft to bring to the wider Federation. If you are or know a crafter who can or does teach then please put them in touch with me via the office. We are starting to plan for Christmas, (I know it’s way too early but needs must) and next year, some newer ideas would be very helpful.

Could I ask that when you are out and about over the summer, attending local shows, could you save me a schedule? I am hoping they will generate ideas for classes for our competition day in June next year. Thank you in advance.

Hope you have begun to think about the October Halloween themed competition classes with food and flowers. Entries close noon 21 September and no late entries are accepted.
