Our Craft Group has been beavering away in a very good cause. With busy, clever fingers
they have knitted colourful Easter chicks and bunnies for the annual fundraiser of St Francis
Children’s Hospice in Didsbury, Manchester.

All the creations are sold with a cream egg inside and our ladies contributed 50 to the
thousands that were made throughout the region. Well done, girls.

Also the group were given a fascinating demonstration of Needle Weaving by experiencd
textile designer Ann Christy. Members thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and marvelled at
the completed pieces of work Ann brought along to show the use of colour combinations and
details.

It prompted the group to try the technique out for themselves. Watch out for results on the
Studio walls during November.
