The Craft in Company group that meets once a month at St Francis’ Church Hall, Weston Road, Westborough (off Aldershot Road) is steadily growing.

There were eight regular crafters at the most recent session with a couple of new faces. The group says it’s great to see some new crafts alongside the regular knitters, jewellery makers and sewers. The group is open to all abilities – just take along your own project

You can be inspired by others, share tips of your hobby with others and receive advice in return.

The picture above shows an example of traditional patchworking method known as English paper piecing using hexagons and great for working on in small sections. It’s very portable, easy to sew while sitting waiting for ballet and music lessons, in the car waiting for the school pick up. And then once a month spread it out on the hall floor to see the layout and work out the next stage.
