Crafternoon - 24th Sept 2016

"A beautiful craft-filled Saturday afternoon was held to celebrate Plain and Pearl's 5th Birthday.  A fabulous range of cakes, crafts and entertainment were on offer to the 50 people who came. All left feeling happier for the experience.

Plain and Pearl was the brain child of Josie and Joy, who set out to ensure that the knowledge of traditional hand crafts is passed on to others willing to learn, young and old.  They never imagined that 5 years later they would have so many members ranging from 8 to 80 years old. 

This friendly and enthusiastic group is open to all who wish to attend, from those with no previous experience to more accomplished crafters.  The group meets twice a month, with attendees coming from Teddington and further afield.  Meetings include the opportunity to learn and practise old and new crafts, as well as  to put skills to work making things and raising money for charities." 

contributions from Jane, Joy B. & Amanda

P&P are now looking for donations of extra large vintage buttons (4.5cm/2” diameter) for items being made for the Church Bazaar on 26 Nov.

Teddington Village Fete - 26th June 2016

This year P&P stall was decorated in colourful yarn bombing made from handknitted scarves.  Lots of people visited our stand and took part in various crafts such as in arm knitting, crocheting, rag rug making, amigurumi, sewing buttons challenges.  

(If you are wondering what happens to the yarn bombing scarves,  they will be transformed into blankets for the homeless.)
