Arts & Crafts Group

THE ARTS & CRAFTS GROUP, like all the organisations, is looking forward to being able to meet again on a regular basis.    October is when we are hoping to be able to start up, in the Lounge Area, and enjoy the fellowship of being together again.  Hopefully we will be able to meet on Wednesday 6th October at 10am and get a new session started. Please contact Ena for confirmation and any updates.

We have kept in touch within the group, mainly by telephone, but starting to work on our crafts every week together will be a big boost for us all.


This group meets in the Lounge Area, entry door beside the old 'Loupin Stane', to the right of the Church gates, at 10am - 12noon on Wednesdays. A wide range of crafts is covered: knitting, embroidery, cross stitch, making a variety of greetings cards, and many other handmade items. We are always willing to help anyone wishing to try a new craft, and we have a large cupboard with suitable materials and tools readily available to try out at no expense.

In the past we have had a stall at events like the Art Exhibition in October, and at the Christmas Fayre, where we displayed and sell our goods, with the church benefitting from the proceeds. This will continue at future similar events.

We pay an annual fee of £2, and each week we pay 50p which covers our cup of coffee/tea and biscuits and allows us to donate to church funds towards heating and lighting. New members are always very welcome and the fellowship enjoyed when we meet is an important part of our group activities. Having time to do some 'craft' work is an added bonus!

Come along any Wednesday to see what we do! For further information, contact Ena King, or use the website's 'Contact Us' button
