Friday Crafternoons Update

I’m really pleased to tell you all that Friday Crafternoons at Make with Mabel in Knutsford start this week with an introduction to needle felting. Some of you will know from previous posts that I’m a huge fan of Gillian Harris (Fibre and Clay sold her felting kits) and her book is just awe inspiring. We can’t promise results to Gillian’s high standard, but we can offer great fun, tuition and access to everything you need to try needle felting for the first time. All our course materials come from Gillian’s gorgeous shop – the Fluffatorium – which you can visit in person or online

Needle felting  is very easy to learn and the results can be outstanding. It’s also great stress relief! This short class will cover safety tips, techniques and talk you through some simple projects you can try in the class or at home.

The class runs from 1pm until 2.30 followed by tea and cake (ideal to fit around the school run) and everyone who takes part will get a take home pack with felting needle and wool to practice at home. You can book directly via the shop on 01565 650 884

If  you’re free on Friday 7th June why not join me for some stabby fun in Knutsford, at just £10 per person it’s a great way to kick off your weekend.

  • Of all my Mother in Law's knitted decorations this fairy is my favourite!
#knittersofinstagram #knitting #knitmas #handmadechristmas #makingchristmas More from Mother in Law's knitivity - Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus - this always reminds me of school nativity plays, where the girl playing the angel always manages to be centre stage!!!
#knitivity #knittednativity #knitmas #knittersofinstagram Happy knitmas! My Mother in Law has unpacked her knitted decorations, here are the three kings, part of the nativity scene which grows every year and now fills the window ledge!
#knittersofinstagram #knitmas #knitting #handmadechristmas #knittednativity Throwback to last December's family outing to Chester Zoo lanterns, a beautiful night. Ah, we knew how to Christmas in the 1960's. Missing my lovely Mum today - and love that we're both wearing outfits she made (crimplene, whatever happened to you???) The fabulous @wildzucchinis getting festive at Cockermouth Food Festival today xx
