The lovely Denise...

...who owns Craft Arena at Barleylands, gave me a book for my fund-raising.

Denise's shop & gallery are well worth a visit if you happen to be at Barleylands - her units are on the upper corridor.

Denise & I have known each other for many years - we were both Tupperware ladies/managers in a past life (and unfortunately she has the photos to prove it LOL). Denise is a recognised retailer of Brother sewing machines and she is a mixed media artist - you really do need to visit and see some of her fabulous work.


Denise very kindly gave me a copy of the "Taster Projects" book to help with my fund-raising...
...this is a super little book that contains the instructions for making 20 different items. This is part of a collection of books from "Search Press" with fabulous ideas for lots of different crafts and at £4.99 a book they are no dearer than most magazines.

I decided that rather than just put the book out for sale, I would add some crafting bits... that someone could make a start on some of the projects straight away.
Here are the goodies all packaged...
 ...with the lovely little book showing what can be made...
...a little crafters starter pack suitable for anyone who wants to give things a try or perhaps for a child who wants to make 'stuff' just like Mum or Grandma does.

The things I included in the pack: -

1 x 4mm crochet hook
1 x pair of 4mm knitting needles (childsize - perfect for those smaller projects)
1 x pom pom maker
1 x 25g Navy Double Knit
1 x 25g White Double Knit
1 x 50g Random shaded Double Knit
1 x Project book

This will go on the table with all the crafty bits & pieces next week - thank you Denise for your generosity................................................................
